Latest Result: Arsenal 3-1 Manchester United
The next game to feast your eyes on come Sunday sees Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal take a trip to Old Trafford to face a Manchester United side which have been revitalised under new manager Erik ten Hag.
Manchester United pushing under Erik ten Hag
Manchester United’s start to the season was nothing short of appalling. Alarm bells were ringing loud and true as the Red Devils lost to Brighton (1-2) and Brentford (4-0) in their opening two games. This put Erik ten Hag under massive early pressure from the English press, but since then things have looked nothing but up for United.
Their last three results have seen them beat Liverpool, Southampton and Leicester City. Climbing to fifth in the league. They have brought in some fresh personnel since the horror start and we could see them make their first starts against Arsenal.
Brazilian winger Antony who has previously worked under Erik ten Hag signed just before deadline day in a deal worth up to €100 million. He could make his first appearance against Arsenal this Sunday. The Reds also went shopping for a midfielder and struck gold. Signing 5 time UEFA Champions League winner Casemiro from Real Madrid. He is yet to start for United and a game of this magnitude could be perfect for him.
If you’re backing Casemiro’s new side then be sure to take advantage of 888sport’s fantastic Manchester United v Arsenal odds.

Arsenal looking to continue 100% record
So far this season Arsenal have won every game they’ve played and are the only team to have done this. They’re top of the league and are filling fans with hope for a title charge. Mikel Arteta’s next test is his toughest of the season so far, a visit to the Theatre of Dreams.
Arteta’s record against United is very good, winning three draws once and losing just once. The most recent meeting of the two sides saw Arsenal beat Ralf Rangnick’s United 3-1, this came at the Emirates Stadium- the last Old Trafford game ended in defeat for the Gunners.
This season Arsenal and United have looked much better than last season, this fixture will be one of the highest quality Arsenal United games we’ve seen in a long time. Both sides have improved massively, thanks to some great signings.
Arsenal’s main man this season has been Gabriel Jesus who signed from City in a £45 million transfer. He was one of five players they brought in. They attempted a 6th signing on transfer deadline day, it would’ve been another Brazilian- Douglas Luiz from Aston Villa but the Midlands club refused three Arsenal offers.
If you’re looking to back Arteta’s side, the Manchester United v Arsenal odds will be kind to you. United just about edge them as favourites, Arsenal are at 13/8 on 888sport while United are at 6/4.

- Jadon Sancho to score
- Gabriel Martinelli to score
Jadon Sancho has been brilliant for United this season and has scored twice already. Including a goal against Liverpool at Old Trafford. He has been a difference maker and it would come as no surprise to see him on the scoresheet.
Gabriel Martinelli has also been fantastic so far this season. He is Arsenal’s joint top scorer with Gabriel Jesus, the Brazilian pair are both on three goals so far this season. He has been a crucial player for the Gunners and will be keen to grab a goal.
