Arsenal - Manchester United Prediction and Analysis
The Arsenal-Manchester United derby of the English Premier League will be played on Sunday evening in London.
With this meeting, the difficult schedule for the Gunners continues.
Because before this match they met 3 other teams from the Top 7 (where Man Utd is also) - Brighton, Newcastle and Tottenham.
In these 3 tough matches, the team from North London took 7 points.
Including a 2-0 away win against Tottenham in the London derby last weekend.
This is the place to say that the Gunners have the 2nd strongest attack and 2nd strongest defense in the Premier League.
On the other hand, Manchester United come to the match in incredible form .
Their long winning streak was snapped a few days ago with a draw against Crystal Palace.
But that doesn't make them any less powerful.
The bookies have Arsenal as favorites today.
But I don't think the visitors will go down without a fight and they could quite possibly take a point here.
Moreover, the Gunners can also afford a draw against this opponent.
Arsenal - statistics and info
Needless to say, Arsenal are having their strongest season in the English Premier League in a decade.
The 2022/23 season is already half over, and Mikel Arteta's formation looks down on all the other teams in the English elite.
Because their lead over the nearest pursuers is solid.
In addition, the Gunners have a game less than them.
In general, everything is going smoothly for the young Spanish coach.
Because he and his players have excellent chances to win 3 cups this season.
Because they easily qualified for the next rounds in the FA Cup and the Europa League.
The form the North London side are showing is truly stunning.
The Gunners are 10-2-0 in their last 12 Premier League games.
As the two draws in that period were against Southampton and Newcastle.
And I dare say that Arsenal missed out on the wins in those fixtures after totally dominating the Saints and the Magpies.
Manchester United - stats and info
Manchester United are also doing wonders under the baton of Erik ten Haag, who took over the team last summer.
The manager experienced some hesitation at the start of his stay at Old Trafford.
But the former Ajax coach managed to overcome all the difficulties that came his way.
And now the team is flying under his leadership.
A few days ago, the Red Devils had to travel to London again for their postponed game against Crystal Palace.
Before this meeting, Man United were on an impressive streak of 9 consecutive victories in official matches.
At Selhurst Park, ten Hag's side came very close to extending that run to 10 wins.
After his players took the lead before the break.
But they conceded a ridiculous equalizer in stoppage time.
When the Eagles' French midfielder Michael Olisse sealed the final 1-1 with his goal.
