The 15th day of the Premier League opens on Tuesday, although it will be on Wednesday when we can enjoy its most interesting match, a Manchester United vs Arsenal for which the red devils start as favorites in the bets.
The squad led by José Mourinho is still losing a foothold with respect to the access to Europe, forcing him to get out of the three-game winless streak against an Arsenal that has grown after beating Tottenham 4-2, a triumph that has allowed him to climb to the fourth position. Let’s look at the most striking data and statistics of both clubs in recent weeks, as well as the most interesting odds for the most interesting duel of the day.
United doesn’t raise its head
It seems that the crisis has been installed within Manchester United. Despite certifying his move to the round of 16 in the Champions League last week, the Premier League is assuming all the torture for a team that seemed to take flight in the previous season. Six wins, four draws and four defeats are in the box of the red devils, with only two points from nine possible in the last three days.
If we stick to their results as a home team, United has three wins, two draws and one defeat, with the alarming number of eight goals scored in six games at Old Trafford, a figure that should improve if they want to rush their options to reach the goals. Access to the maximum European competition, which currently separates eight points.
A great moment for Arsenal
The situation in Arsenal is very different. The Gunners have not lost a single game since August between Premier League, League Cup and Europa League, and as far as the Premier is concerned, they have added two wins and three draws in the last five games. The change of coach after more than 20 years under the command of Arséne Wenger presaged a very complicated campaign for the London team, but the truth is that they have adapted perfectly to the libretto Unai Emery, which has led to its escalation to the posts of access to the Champions League to the detriment of Tottenham, team that won last weekend. As a visiting team, Arsenal has four wins in six games, with 16 goals scored as the best explanation for the great campaign they are signing up to now.
More than a decade without winning at Old Trafford
Although the Arsenal arrives in a very positive dynamic to this duel, the certain thing is that they are already 12 years accumulated without winning in Old Trafford in the Premier League. Moreover, since that victory in September 2006, they have only managed to beat Manchester United once in the 15 games they have played since then, but there is no doubt that this is an ideal match to break this nefarious statistic.
Manchester United vs Arsenal Betting Odds
Manchester United vs Arsenal Betting Prediction
As we have seen, Arsenal have accumulated a good number of years without winning at Old Trafford, although it is also true that their run of results is much more positive than Manchester United throughout this season. In this way, we bet on a draw for this match, whose share is 3.60. Of course, that victory would come with goals in both goals, which would raise the gains to 4.00 for each unit wagered. In case of looking for an even higher risk in betting, the 1-1 seems a result to take into account, and offers a very suggestive share of 7.50.
