The English Premier League is back in action in the New Year as Arsenal will clash with their arch-rival Manchester United. The Gunners are heading into this game after an unlucky defeat 1-2 in the London derby at home against Chelsea. And on the other side, the Red Devils managed to secure a solid 0-2 win against Burnley away.
The Gunners are not having a good season. Moreover, this is their worst season since 1972. They have also lost their last game against Chelsea with a score of 1-2. However, there were some positive signs as the London team was leading 1-0 until the mistake of goalkeeper Leno in the 83rd minute of the game. The Arteta led team showed some desire, passion and commitment. Also, their pressing was good and the passing accuracy was really good. It seems that new head coach energized this team. Yet, there is still work to be done. The Gunners won once in the last 10 games and they need a win badly.
On the offensive side of the game, Arsenal scored 26 goals so far this season. Also, they have conceded 30 goals in the games so far. Therefore, they have a negative goal difference of -4 goals.
Manchester United Form
The Red Devils are back in the fix for the top 4 this season. Moreover, they have won their last two games in a row and the winning momentum is back in their squad. Also, they have been playing well away lately and notably they beat their neighbours Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium with a score of 1-2. Therefore, it seems that Soskjaer is slowly developing this team into a Champions League contender. They are on the 5th spot with 4 points behind Chelsea for the final Champions League spot in the EPL.
On the offensive side of the game, the Red Devils scored 32 goals so far this season. Also, they have conceded 23 goals so far. Therefore, they have a positive goal difference of 9 so far.
This is a tricky game for both teams. It seems that Man. Utd is slowly getting into a solid form and they have shown that they can win on the road. However, the Gunners need the win badly as they are getting close to the relegation zone. They showed some promising signs in the last game against Chelsea and were unlucky to lose the match. Therefore, I expect a win for the Gunners with both teams to score.
