The Premier League match organisers have saved the best till last on ‘week four’ with old rivals Arsenal and Manchester United doing battle once more – this time at the Emirates Stadium.

This will be the 209th time the sides have met in the league and there’s not a lot between them – Arsenal have won 74, Man Utd 85, with 49 draws.

Each side also took 3 points off the other last term and the neutrals out there will be hoping for a repeat of last season’s clash in London that ended in a 3-2 thriller to the Gunners – you can back that score again at 20/1.

Arsenal dropped points last week with a 2-2 draw at home to Fulham, but United will be flying high after coming from 2 down to beat Forest 3-2 at home.

The match betting gives Arsenal the edge at 4/5, with the draw 11/4 and Man Utd on offer at 10/3.

The Gunners are also unbeaten in 8 of their last 11 league games vs United and also in 8 of the last 9 repeat fixtures.

Arsenal have also won 3 of the last 7 league games at the Emirates vs United 2-0, so this might also be a scoreline to have on your radar at 11/1.

Other betting options in the game suggest goals, as the last 4 clashes all saw both teams score and they also went Over 3.5 Goals.

You can back 4+ goals in the game at 13/10 or both teams to score at 8/15.

Finally, onto the scorers and each side has a player that’s enjoyed facing the other team.

United’s Marcus Rashford scored 3 times vs Arsenal last season, while THE Gunners Bukayo Saka has netted in the last three head-to-heads.

Rashford can be backed at 7/1 (1st) or 9/4 (anytime), while Saka is on offer at 13/2 (1st) or 21/10 (anytime).

Overall, with both teams leaking a few goals now and also having plenty of firepower up top, then the ‘both teams to score’ option at 8/15 looks a nice option that is sure to give you a run for your money.

Or, if you want a bit more value, then Over 2.5 Goals and both teams to score at 4/5 might tempt you in.
