Man United Vs Arsenal Preview

As the Premier League season nears its end, the much-anticipated clash between Manchester United and Arsenal is set to ignite the iconic Old Trafford stadium on Sunday, May 12. Both teams have had contrasting seasons in the current Premier League campaign with the Gunners sitting second in the EPL standings and the Red Devils languishing in 8th, and outside the UCL positions.

Under the guidance of Erik Ten Hag, Manchester United have shown a marked improvement, finishing third in the previous season with an innovative attacking style of play. However, this season has presented challenges for The Red Devils as they currently sit in 8th place in the league table.

Erik Ten Hag's side have been unbeaten since their narrow 4-3 defeat at Chelsea on April 4th. However, they have only managed to win one of their five Premier League games since then, with a disappointing 1-1 draw against struggling Burnley at Old Trafford last weekend and a crushing 4-0 defeat to Crystal Palace on Monday.

On the other hand, Arsenal, led by talented tactician Mikel Arteta, has experienced a revival in recent times. The Spanish manager has implemented a strong sense of discipline and tactical acumen within his team, resulting in a significant rise to the top of the Premier League table.

As part of our tradition of sharing valuable information to help you increase your bankroll, we have outlined updates on the two teams, their current performances, and our prediction. So, take advantage of this opportunity to place a bet that will result in a win for you.

Manchester United Vs Arsenal Team News

Manchester United 

Since the beginning of the season, Ten Hag has faced a difficult situation with lengthy injury layoffs plaguing the team. Marcus Rashford has been sidelined for the past two games and is uncertain for the upcoming matches, while Scott McTominay is racing against time to recover from a knee injury. 

There are doubts about Bruno Fernandes' availability due to injury after news of him missing the Crystal Palace game today surfaced. Although, he may still feature against Arsenal. 

Luke Shaw, Lisandro Martinez, and Anthony Martial are nearing a comeback, but their status for the upcoming matches is unclear. With Ten Hag's future at the club in question, the mounting injuries only add to the pressure.


Leading up to the victory at the Emirates Stadium against Bournemouth on Saturday, May 4, Arteta had a full squad of senior players available for the first time since the start of the season. 

With a fine mix of seasoned veterans and promising young stars like Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard, Arsenal have the depth to contend with Manchester United at their home field and potentially ‘trash the Red out of the Devils.’

Verdict: Arsenal appears to have the advantage over Manchester United with a significantly smaller injury list, giving them the upper hand in their upcoming match.

Manchester United Vs Arsenal Current Form

Manchester United

Since the Red Devils’ narrow defeat at Chelsea on April 4th, they have won just one of their next five Premier League games. Their most recent performance, a 4-0 beating to Crystal Palace after a 1-1 draw against struggling Burnley at Old Trafford, highlights their inconsistency. 

Overall, The Red Devils have won 16 matches, drawn 6, and lost 13 in the Premier League this season. Their home form has been average, with 9 victories, 3 draws, and 5 losses, while their away form is considered fair with 7 wins, 3 draws, and 8 losses.


After a disappointing defeat to Aston Villa at the Emirates Stadium, the Gunners have bounced back with four consecutive victories to stay competitive in the Premier League title race. 

This season, Arteta's side have been in excellent form, boasting 26 wins, 5 draws, and 5 losses in the Premier League. Arsenal are currently leading the Premier League table with 83 points, having played one more match than title contender Manchester City who have 82 points.

Their home performance has been exceptional, with 14 wins, 2 draws, and 2 losses, while their away form has also been strong, with 12 wins, 3 draws, and 3 losses. 

Verdict: Manchester United have not been putting up a strong performance at Old Trafford this season. With Arsenal's impressive record of away victories, it is very likely that the Gunners will increase their tally to 13 when they travel to Old Trafford. We give this one to the Gunners. 

Manchester United Vs Arsenal Head-To-Head

On the 3rd of September, Arsenal hosted Manchester United in their first encounter this season which ended 3-1 in favour of Arsenal. The Gunners won the match with two late goals coming from behind to trash Manchester United. Marcus Rashford gave United an early lead in the 27th minute before Odegaard returned parity a minute later. 

Declan Rice and former Manchester City star Gabriel Jesus shocked the fans with their stunning goals coming in at  90+6 and 90+11'. Meanwhile, Ten Hag has often talked about the scenarios in that Arsenal game claiming it was a fixture that had some controversies.

The Dutch boss claimed that Rasmus Hojlund could have had a penalty, and a disallowed Alejandro Garnacho strike should have stood.

As of 3rd September 2023, the clubs have faced each other 240 times, with Manchester United winning 99 games to Arsenal's 88, and 53 matches ended in a draw.

Verdict: Manchester United have a strong history of winning against Arsenal, with Old Trafford proving a difficult hunting ground for the Gunners on several occasions. The head to head favours United, however, recent performances do not.
