Manchester United may be at home but they have been quite poor in recent matches. Apart from the results, too many players have been caught with lackadaisical approach and performance. Jose Mourinho was a frustrated man on the sidelines in the recent game against Southampton. However, Mourinho does not have options to change his team due to the lengthy injury list. Meanwhile, Arsenal have been going through a remarkable run of 19 matches without a defeat. The Gunners have been able to display plenty of good facets to their game and they are quite impressive coming into this match. Our preview would pick a win for Arsenal.

Manchester United vs Arsenal draw odds: 3.50
Manchester United win odds: 2.45
Correct Score odds
Arsenal have been enjoying a lot of momentum going forward. The club scored four goals against Spurs during the weekend and Manchester United have every reason to fear a big defeat if they repeat the kind of performance put in the game against Southampton. United have been reliant on Marcus Rashford to infuse any performance into the team. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for Arsenal.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Both teams do not possess a solid defence and they have a tendency to concede goals. David de Gea is undisputedly one of the best goalkeepers in the business but he has a fragile defence in front of him. Since Arsenal are expected to score a couple due to the brilliance of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been in fine form and his latest goals against Spurs have taken him to the top of the Premier League scoring charts this season. The 29-year-old has come up with 10 league goals. He has settled extremely well in the Premier League and our first goalscorer prediction would back Aubameyang to score first.
