Arsenal vs Man Utd betting preview
This season for Arsenal has been highly inconsistent, they have shown a lot of weaknesses then when they appear to have solved their issues a new weakness arises, Arsene Wenger will not be happy with the clubs recent results, he has fantastic tactics and strategies but the players are letting him down, his injury worries are not as bad as it was at the start of the season and there is no question about his young squads talent, but they don’t seem to be producing results although they rarely play dreadfully.
Last weeks’ match against Swansea was fantastic, Arsenal defiantly showed some form in the attacking front, but in defence they really do look all at sea, they are conceding so many goals, even though Swansea’s home record is superb, people expected Arsenal to tighten things up and to produce an easy result, but obviously this wasn’t a case and once again Arsenal has showed some inconsistency. Again, when Arsenal played Fulham they really did have a tough time at it both defensively and when in attack, hence why they lost.
Arsenal really do need to push on now, some of their players are back from injury and a lot of the big teams have also slipped up quite a bit this season, therefore Arsenal are not out of the title race as even Wayne Rooney stated in a recent interview, they are still a highly organised team who love to play attractive football, but whether they can find a bit of consistency is yet to be seen.
Throughout the season United have showed some ability to produce magically results, they seem to be punishing the bigger clubs but don’t impress too much against the teams at the bottom end of the league, perhaps this is because Sir Alex’s young players have lost a lot of form, take for example the match against Newcastle, United’s second team were dreadful even though Sir Alex has tremendous confidence in their ability, and they did play well earlier in the season but things are not looking to good for the younger players, they have made some crucial mistakes which United could regret.
However, United’s front team is world class, they have a great squad and when they approach bigger clubs they do not faze away and they often produce a victory. United played fantastically against Bolton last week and scored a few goals, they have not looked to try and sign anyone during this transfer window so this is perhaps an indication that Sir Alex is happy with his squad’s ability, but is aware they some players lack a bit of confidence and form and once this is sorted, they are for sure going to push on.
Manchester United can’t afford to slip up again, they have a few crucial matches coming up and to win the title they are likely to become ruthless and show everyone what they are made of.
Arsenal v Manchester United:
This fixture is always spectacular, take it back to earlier in the season where the fixture produced 8 goals, Manchester United were ruthless and dominant, not only in the match but also in the fixtures before and after, they really was on a roll. However, compared to Arsenal, Arsenal had plenty of injuries and rumours surrounding various players from the club, so such a big victory could perhaps be expected because of those two reasons.
However, arguably Manchester United have become much weaker since the last match and Arsenal did show signs of high amounts of improvements, but as of late this can be doubted.
Arsenal will perhaps want the victory, especially because they are at home. With United however it wouldn’t be surprising is they send out a defensive formation, a draw would be a good result for them, especially when taking into account Man City’s reason form. But on balance you would say United are much stronger, so should win.
