Man Utd vs Arsenal | Confirmed Line-Ups | How To Watch | Prediction | Betting

By on April 29, 2018

Arsene Wenger will take charge of Arsenal at Old Trafford for the final time when the Gunners take on Manchester United this afternoon.

The long-serving Frenchman has confirmed he’ll leave Arsenal this summer after almost 22-years at the helm following a disappointing campaign that will see the Londoners finish outside the top four. Jose Mourinho has looked to bury his long-running feud with Wenger in the build-up to the game and he hopes the 68-year-old will be shown the respect he deserves from the Old Trafford crowd.

However, United won’t be in the mood for niceties on the pitch as they need a win to tighten their grip on second place with Liverpool just two points behind in fourth. The Red Devils should be confident of collecting all three points as Wenger is set to field a severely weakened team ahead of Arsenal’s huge Europa League semi-final second leg at Atletico Madrid on Thursday night.

Betting Tips

United are the 2/5 favourites with the bookmakers but new customers can get enhanced odds of 25/1 on the Red Devils if they use some of the widely available bonuses around. It’s also worth checking out the promotions from Grosvenor as they have some excellent offers available. I like the look of both teams to score NO at 6/5 while my prediction of a 2-0 Man Utd win is available at odds of 13/2. If we throw in Lukaku as the first goalscorer, we get very tempting odds of 12/1.

Team News

United have no fresh injury problems to deal after Antonio Valencia made a swift recovery from a muscle problem so Sergio Romero is the only absentee.

The Gunners have left Laurent Koscielny, Shkodran Mustafi, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette back in London while Mohamed Elneny has been ruled out with an ankle injury.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan returns from a knee injury while youngsters like Reiss Nelson, Eddie Nketiah, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Joe Willock are in the squad.

Predicted Score

Man Utd 2-0 Arsenal: The Gunners haven’t won at Old Trafford in their last ten visits and have lost 13 of their last 18 away games at United. The north Londoners away record in the league this season has been woeful as they’ve already lost 9 games on the road including their last five so I can’t see a weakened Arsenal team getting anything today. I’m going with a comfortable United win.
