Arsenal got a decent start to the season and are currently in 4th place. They made no new signings in the summer except Cech and seem poised for their usual 3rd of 4th placed finish in the league.
Man United had little expectation this season but got a great start of results and are currently top of the league in 1st place. Their new signing Martial seems to have given them a big boost as they won their last 3 league games including 2 tough games home to Liverpool and away to Southampton.
Looking at the odds for this match, I think Man United are good value. Man United won their last 4 games in all competitions, and got a good win in the midweek against Wolfsburg. They have DeGea back in goal and he is putting in great performances as usual. Martial is giving them a boost and scoring goals, and Rooney scored a goal last week and may regain his confidence and form from that. In addition, they have sneakily managed to get to the top of the league.
Arsenal on the other hand are not doing so well. They lost their 2nd champions league match 3-2 at home to Olympiakos, and it will now be difficult for them to qualify to the next stage, and they are surely demoralised by that loss. Their defense has not been solid, conceeding 5 goals in their last 2 games and 10 goals in their last 5. Fans are getting frustrated by no new signings.
So in this match, I am backing Man United to avoid defeat. Man United only lost 1 games in the league this season in 7. Arsenal tend to struggle vs the top 4 teams. Arsenal failed to beat Man United the last 4 times their hosted them in the league. Last time they beat Man Utd in the league either home or away was in 2011. So with the great form and great head to head record, and Arsenal in a minor crisis, the bet is Man United +0.5 on the AH.
