Arsenal vs Manchester United Betting Pick | 2021/22 EPL December 2

Yep, this week’s Premier League action starts a bit earlier than usual. We already saw some interesting matches last night, with even more EPL action scheduled for today. Arsenal vs. Man Utd betting predictions are here, so if you’re thinking of investing some money into the English Premier League today, you’re at the right place!

At the moment, Arsenal are in fifth place, which is outright unbelievable considering their form early on in the season. As for United, they’re currently in the tenth spot, also quite unbelievable considering their solid start under Ole. Times have changed, that’s for sure – Arsenal are in far better form right now and will be fancying their chances of winning all three points in what’s bound to be a tightly contested away fixture.

Arsenal vs. Man Utd Betting Odds

Here are the odds for this Champions League matchup:

Arsenal To Win:
+250
Man Utd To Win:
+100
Draw:
+275
Both Teams To Score:
-150

Even though Arsenal are in better form right now, soccer bookmakers see Manchester United as the favorites. Yep, Manchester United who have won just four points in their last five matches are labeled as favorites against Arsenal who’ve taken twelve. What gives?

Well, United should never be taken for granted! They have a star-packed roster that can explode at any given moment. Plus, they are playing at home and are in desperate need of all three points… not to mention the fact this is Michael Carrick’s last match as the interim manager. His successor, Ralf Rangnick, is set to start leading his new team next week.

Arsenal vs. Man Utd Betting Predictions

The last time Manchester United managed to beat arsenal was way back in January 2019 in the FA cup. As for Premier League fixtures, the last time United took all three points was in April 2018. Their last five h2h EPL clashes saw Arsenal take three wins and two draws.

As for the injuries, both teams have notable absentees. On United’s end, Pogba and Varane are still far away from being 100% fit, while Cavani and Shaw could play but are likely to get another week of rest. For Arsenal, Arteta can’t count on Xhaka and Kolasinac while Saka is under a big question mark. Arguably, United are off to a worse start injury-wise, though we’ll see just how that’ll affect their performance coming into this one!

Arsenal Betting Preview: Can Arsenal Create an Upset?

Now let’s talk about Arsenal! As you probably know, Arsenal had a disastrous start to this season. Everyone chanted Arteta out after the first couple of fixtures, but the Spaniard managed to get the most out of the poor start and is currently in the fifth spot. Arsenal’s form is not to be taken for granted, and If you’re a sucker for Arteta’s style of play, Arsenal’s moneyline at +250 holds a ton of value.

Individually, Emile Smith Rowe is turning into Arteta’s savior. Arsenal’s youngster is having a blast of a season, having scored four and assisted two thus far in the Premier League.

  • He’s doing wonders in terms of other aspects of the game, many of which don’t have tangible numbers to them.
  • He’s developing into a dangerous passer as well as a prolific runner with the ball.
  • He’s quick to connect with other midfielders on both ends and is no stranger to scoring fantastic goals in and out of the box.

Another youngster, Bukayo Saka, is having a solid season too. Two goals and two assists – England’s future look brilliant! As for more experienced players, Arsenal can rely on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to provide in the goalscoring department. The pacey Gabonese striker has stepped up and is miles above Lacazette – he’s the striker Arteta can count on in times of need.

Manchester United Betting Preview: Can Carrick Finish Strongly?

As mentioned earlier, this will be Carrick’s final game at the wheel! He hasn’t been doing lots of things differently than his predecessor, but we’ve finally seen Jadon Sancho start scoring goals and Van de Beek being used in the right position (and being used at all, come to think of it).

United managed to steal a point off Chelsea last weekend and cement their top spot in UEFA Champions League. Now they’re up against another good old competitor in Arsenal. Arteta’s men are in fine form, no doubt about that. Michael Carrick will need to motivate his men to give 120% if they are to get all three points from this tough home fixture.

Please Note:

Cristiano Ronaldo is likely to start in this one, despite recent absentees from the starting lineup. The same goes for Van de Beek and Jadon Sancho who are starting to establish themselves among United’s first eleven following Ole’s departure.

As for their creative midfielders, Pogba’s absence is a double-edged sword. On one end, it will give Bruno Fernandes more space but will require both Fred and Van de Beek to travel upfield more than usual.

Arsenal vs. Man Utd Betting Picks

This is going to be a very interesting match. I don’t expect too much goals, though I reckon we’ll see both teams shake the net at least once. With that said, here’s the wrap-up:

The Bet
Both Teams To Score
-130
