Arsenal vs Manchester United Playerzpot Prediction | EPL Match Preview, Fantasy Team & Team News
Two of the biggest rivals will go head to head when Arsenal host Manchester United at the Emirates this Sunday. Manchester United, fresh off that famous PSG scalp, are sat 4th in the table while, their rivals, Arsenal are 5th. The two teams are separated by a single point and the winner of this match will have the advantage in the race for CL qualification.
Big games keep on coming for Manchester United who claimed a stunning tie victory against PSG a few days ago. The Red Devils had lost the home fixture 2-0 in an uninspiring fashion and many had believed the tie was over. However, Manchester United overturned the result with a memorable 3-1 win at Parc de Princes.
Arsenal, on the other hand, had a very contrasting, with respect to Manchester United, result in France. The Gunners lead early on in the game before central defender Sokratis was sent-off. As a result, Emery’s side faced the ignominy of a 3-1 loss and they are now on the verge of getting knocked out of Europa League.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been able to enthuse a positive vibe at Manchester United and the team is reaping the benefits of that. When the former Manchester United player took over the job as manager, United were 9 points behind Arsenal. It is a testament to his great work that the Red Devils are now a point clear of their historic rivals.
Solskjaer’s counterpart, Unai Emery has had his highs and lows in his very short Arsenal career so far. Just when Arsenal looked to be gathering some momentum, they gave away a 1-0 lead to draw against Tottenham. The Gunners had the perfect opportunity to make way into top 4, but they fumbled once again. However, Emery has another chance to get back into a Champion League spot. Arsenal know the reward of a win against Manchester United as it will take them past the Red Devils.
