Manchester United will play hosts to Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal for one last time at Old Trafford on Sunday.
This is one of the best rivalries that Premier League has to offer, and it’s a shame that these two sides are meeting in an almost meaningless game.
United sit in the second spot and have a three-point lead on Liverpool despite playing a game fewer than the Merseysiders. A win against the Gunners would almost guarantee the runner-up spot for Jose Mourinho’s side.
The Red Devils registered an impressive 2-1 win over Tottenham in the FA Cup semi-final last weekend. However, in their last home game in the league, they had suffered a shock defeat to bottom-side West Bromwich Albion.
Arsenal were involved in Europa League during the midweek and could only manage a 1-1 draw against ten-men Atletico Madrid in the first leg. The North Londoners still have a decent chance to make it to the final, so we expect Wenger to rest some key players against United.
Additionally, the Gunners have been terrible on the road this season, and we expect United to win easily. Coming into this game, the North London side have lost their last five away games in the league.
Earlier this season, United claimed a 3-1 win over their opponents at the Emirates Stadium.
