Premier League Arsenal vs Man Utd
Arsenal vs Manchester United Premier League

The match is over.
Score: 2-0.

The standout game of the Premier League weekend sees two sides battling for a top four spot go head-to-head. Manchester United, in fourth, are currently one place and one point above Arsenal – with both teams in a good run of recent form.

Predictions

Manchester United have won more Premier League points than any other side since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s appoint in mid-December.

The Norwegian has guided his side to 10 wins and 32 points from his 12 league games at the helm, while he has also secured his side an FA Cup victory at Arsenal this season.

Arsenal are also in a good run of league form having won five of their last seven Premier League matches – a run only broken by a defeat at Manchester City and a draw at Tottenham last time out.

Both these sides are aiming for a top four spot this season along with Tottenham, in third, and sixth-placed Chelsea.

The visitors will be slight favourites to continue their strong recent record in this fixture despite not possessing home advantage, as they hold superior form and quality over Arsenal.

The away side are small favourites to win this game although it may not be comfortable – a 2-1 triumph for the Manchester side would appear a likely outcome from it.
