Weekend Football Tips
Manchester United (2.35) v Arsenal (3.20); Draw (3.50)
Arsenal followed up their success against Liverpool with victory at the Westfalenstadion on Wednesday, as Arsene Wenger’s side continued to gain traction.
The Gunners exertions against Borussia Dortmund coupled with a day less of rest might lessen the north London side’s energy levels on Sunday, but the form of Aaron Ramsey shows no signs of relenting.
Arsene Wenger has urged his players to show the self-belief and desire required to sustain their title push, after just one defeat in their opening 10 games of the Premier League season, with a win attractively priced at 3.20.
Arsenal have scored in each of their last 29 games in all competitions, a run that seems likely to continue given Manchester United have now gone over six games without a clean sheet in the Premier League.
Hosts Manchester United picked up their third win in four Premier League games on Saturday, following a 3-1 victory at Craven Cottage.
A sustained winning streak continues to desert new manager David Moyes, who watched his side miss a number of opportunities as the Red Devils failed to beat Real Sociedad away from home.
Striker Robin Van Persie will be eager to atone for his penalty miss in Spain by notching against his former club on Sunday, something the Dutch striker managed to achieve both home and away against the Gunners last season.
Wayne Rooney continues to enjoy a good run of form in front of goal, but Arsenal’s extra man in midfield could leave the England international struggling to get into the game at times, should Moyes decide to field a 4-4-2 or 4-4-1-1 formation on Sunday.
Manchester United are undefeated in their last eight matches in all competitions and a win on Sunday would bring the current Premier League champions firmly back into the title race.
United have injury worries over Michael Carrick and Danny Welbeck heading into the match, so Belgian starlet Adnan Januzaj could be the surprise addition to the starting line-up, despite sustained calls for Shinji Kagawa in the side.
Manchester United have a strong record against Arsenal at Old Trafford having won eight of their last nine matches against¬†Arsenal in all competitions, but the Gunners’¬†recent results suggest Arsene Wenger’s side remain undervalued again this weekend.
