A massive match in the Premier League this Sunday as league leaders Arsenal welcome the 13-time winners Manchester United to the Emirates.

There are 8 points between the Gunners (47 points) at the top of the table and Man Utd (39), so you feel a United win here is a must if they want to keep their title dreams alive, especially after dropping 2 points by letting in a late goal at Palace on Wednesday.

In that Palace game, United midfielder Casemiro got a second yellow card and with that being his fifth of the season has been given a one-match ban – ruing him out of the bit Arsenal clash on Sunday.

Arsenal have only lost one game in the league, but the good news for United fans is that sole defeat came against them back at Old Trafford in September (3-1).

However, the Gunners have a much better record against Man Utd at home – they’ve only lost 1 of their last 7 league matches in front of their home crowd and overall have lost just 3 of the last 10 meetings.

The match betting for Sunday’s huge clash sees Arsenal as favourites at 4/5, the draw 14/5 and Man Utd on offer at 16/5.

The last three head-to-heads have also seen a fair few goals – all three went Over 2.5 Goals, so the 8/11 on this happening again looks a fair option, while both teams to score (yes) has also paid out in the last 3 meetings – this is on offer at 4/6.

The in-form Marcus Rashford scored a brace in the last head-to-head and has scored in 7 of United’s last 8 matches – he can be backed at 8/1 (1st) or 3/1 (anytime).

Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka is also having a top season and the other England man has netted in both the last two head-to-heads to suggest he’s worth having an interest in here too at 13/2 (1st) or 9/4 (anytime).
