Arsenal were simply blown away by Liverpool on Saturday, going down 5-1 at Anfield but it could be argued that Manchester United’s home draw with rock-bottom Fulham is a worse result and subsequently, the Gunners deserve to be Paddy Power’s 6/5 favourites as they prepare to tackle the champions at the Emirates Stadium.
David Moyes’s hapless troops are 11/4 via bet365 to continue their recent decent record against the North London but Arsenal have the meanest home defensive in the Premier League and with United perhaps looking a touch predictable in attack, the hosts get the nod.
Nevertheless, having won only once against the Old Trafford side in 13 attempts, Arsenal might be a touch nervy so it’s hard to see them enjoying a comfortable evening.
Skybet’s 3/1 about them shading it by one isn’t without appeal then and in a match that’s 7/10 (BetVictor) to see both teams get on the scoresheet, Arsenal might be worth a modest flutter at 9/1 (Stan James) to triumph 2-1.
Alternatively, Coral quote them at 16/5 to emerge victorious without keeping a clean sheet.
