The Emirates Stadium, London, United Kingdom.
Wednesday 1st January.
Kick-off: 20:00 (UK).
English Premier League.
TV: BT Sport 1 (UK).
Results haven’t improved for Arsenal under new manager Mikel Arteta. Despite losing, their performance against Chelsea was much better than in any other game in recent months. Two late Chelsea goals with one caused by a goalkeeping howler - summed up Arsenal’s season so far. Arsenal won 2-0 in this fixture last season, and they are at odds of 12/1 to win by the same scoreline.
A strong finish
Man United made a dreadful start to the festive fixtures with a 2-0 loss to Watford. They bounced back in impressive fashion with comfortable wins over Newcastle and Burnley. They’ll hope to start 2020 just as they ended 2019 by getting three points. You can currently back them at 13/8 to start 2020 with a bang.
2019 has been a year to forget for both sides, and a win is a must if they want to make the Champions League spots. These two teams are unpredictable and are capable of winning and losing against anyone. Anything can happen here and with the defensive frailties of both sides; expect lots of chances in this one. With that being said, important games can be cagey if there’s no early goal. Will they cancel each other out in this match? You can get odds of 13/5 for a draw. Consistency is the key for an improved 2020, and both Man Utd and Arsenal will be looking to make some additions in January.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang: The only positive for Arsenal’s abysmal season. He has 13 goals so far this season.
Anthony Martial: He has scored three goals in the last two matches. Can he extend his streak by netting against the Gunners?
Arsenal: Kieran Tierney, Dani Ceballos, Sead Kolasinac and Gabriel Martinelli.
Man United: Nemanja Matić and Diogo Dalot.
Both teams scored in the first half during the last round of matches in the Premier League, and we are tipping them to do it again. Our betting tip is for both teams to score in the first half at odds of 5/2.
