EPL week 12 Man United vs. Arsenal Game Preview And Predictions
Manchester United Vs. Arsenal is the biggest game of the weekend with both teams needing points to pace with the other genuine title contenders. The website gamblingwebsites.org.uk has Man U as the favorites through most of the top bookies but a number have the Gunners as odds on favorites even though they are away from home. If you are going to place a wager on the match make sure you check all the different odds available to make the most profits if your bet comes in. Six points separate them with the Gunners in fourth place on 24 points and the Red Devils on 18 points in sixth place. If Man U are going to qualify for the champions League this season, these are the game that they need to win. If the Gunner wants to win the Premier League title, they will need to beat the top teams, starting this weekend.
It has been a strange season so for Man U and many of the fans will be disappointed with results so far. Big things were expected with the arrival of Jose Mourinho who has a habit of winning the title in his first season at a club. They spent vast amounts of money over the summer including two world class stars in Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba. They have been extremely inconsistent and if they are going to progress to the Champions League or further they will need to solve this problem fast or they will be too far behind the rest of the pack.
The Red Devils will be without Zlatan Ibrahimovic due to a suspension which will be a huge blow to them. He is their leading goalscorer and has been one of the standout players for them this campaign. The player has apologized to the fans for picking up his fifth yellow card of the season in their last match against Swansea. Man U were 3-1 up when the striker picked up the card which is a stupid error for such an experienced player. He is their leading goalscorer on six goals and has double a number of goals compared to second placed Marcus Rashford who is on three.
The Gunners are having a typical season so far with Wenger in charge. One week they look like they will finally win the title again, the next the look like an average mid table team. They against North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in their last game 1-1 at home and in large part of the game they were dominated by Spurs. The 0-0 draw against Middlesbrough cost them dearly as if they had won that they would be sitting in top place rather than Liverpool.
Most of the Gunners success has been due to the form of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Özil . Over the international break, Sanchez picked up an injury tear in his quadricep. The player has said he is willing to risk further injury by taking part in the game against Man U. Wenger may choose to start him on the beach and only risk him if needed.
EPL week 12 Man United vs. Arsenal Prediction
Both teams have a poor defensive record this season so I expect there to be goals. If Sanchez recovers enough to start and with Ibrahimovic missing for the Red Devils, I am predicting the Arsenal will beat the Red Devils by 1-2.
