Manchester United will play Arsenal on Wednesday. The Red Devils were disappointed at the weekend once again, after a 2-2 draw against Southampton. The result left Jose Mourinho’s side on the seventh place in the league, eight points behind Arsenal and sixteen points behind the leaders Manchester City.
Arsenal and the club’s fans have a lot to smile for in the recent weeks. On Sunday, Unai Emery’s side defeated local rivals Tottenham at Emirates although they were losing 1-2 at the break. Aaron Ramsey was the hero for The Gunners with two assists after being subbed in after the break. Arsenal is undefeated in 19 consecutive games in all tournaments.
Currently, Arsenal is in a better form and looks like a title contender. However, Jose Mourinho’s side should not be underestimated. The Red Devils have just three losses in the previous 38 home league games and have already proven this season that they can bounce back from two goals deficit. I will avoid Full-Time Result bet and will focus on goals. Both teams not only score a lot of goals this season but concede too. Arsenal has scored at least two goals in all away games without keeping a clean sheet. I expect more of the same and will back Both Teams to Score and Over 2.5 Goals, with Draw 2-2 Correct Score.
