Man Utd v Arsenal – Premier League Betting Guide: 5th Dec 2018

Manchester United v Arsenal 20:00

Wednesday 5th Dec 2018

A cracking to look forward to on Wednesday night as struggling Manchester United welcome the in-form Arsenal to Old Trafford.

United head in to the game having draw their last two to the likes of Palace and Southampton so the pressure is building on Jose Mourhino, while, in contrast, Arsenal will come here full of confidence after beating Spurs last weekend.

However, despite their current form it’s United that come into the game as the match favourites at 2.40, with the Draw 3.60 and Arsenal 3.00.

Last season this game ended 2-1 to United and a repeat of that can be backed at 10.00, but it is also worth noting that 2 of the last 4 repeat fixtures ended 1-1 – that is on offer at 7.50.

In fact, United fans will have more hope knowing that they are also unbeaten in the last 11 repeat fixtures, while the Gunners last beat the Red Devils away in the league in 2006, and also gained three points in just two on their last 14 league games over United.

Looking at the scoring markets, Arsenal’s Aubameyang is having a good time of it this season so the 4.50 (1st) or 1.90 (anytime) looks sure to be popular, while for United Lukaku is their shortest-priced player at 6.00 (1st) or 2.37 (anytime).

4 of the last 6 clashes went OVER 2.5 GOALS, so at 1.66 this might appeal, but the call here is for Both Teams To Score at 1.53. This bet has paid out in 7 of the last 9 head-to-heads (78%) so the price – despite being odds-on – looks fair value.

BEST BET BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE @1.53
