Manchester United v Arsenal Premier League Betting Tips 12/05/24

Man United host Arsenal at Old Trafford this Sunday afternoon, and it’s a must-win for both sides, so time for our Manchester United v Arsenal Premier League Betting Tips. United dropped out of the European qualification places following a 4-0 hammering at Crystal Palace. Arsenal, however, are looking strong as they occupy the top spot in the Premier League with just two matches remaining. Will the Red Devils upset their rivals’ title hopes? This game will be shown live on Sky Sports at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday. 

Form and Team News

Man United have just one win in their last eight matches in all competitions. Erik Ten Hag’s side beat relegated Sheffield United 4-2 before dropping points to Burnley (1-1) and Crystal Palace (4-0). These setbacks saw United drop from sixth place to eighth, and they are two points outside the top six. Arsenal have shown resilience recently to win four in a row and keep their title hopes rolling. The Gunners responded to back-to-back losses against Aston Villa (2-0) and Bayern Munich (1-0) with four straight wins. Mikel Arteta’s side are top of the Premier League and one point ahead of Man City. But the North Londoners have played a game more than City. 

Man United have several first-team players out for Arsenal’s visit. Tyrell Malacia, Lisandro Martínez, Raphaël Varane, Luke Shaw, Victor Lindelöf, Willy Kambwala and Harry Maguire are ruled out. Scott McTominay, Bruno Fernandes, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford are also doubtful. Arsenal have just one injury concern. Defender Jurrien Timber is doubtful following a long-term injury.            

Match Winner Bet

Looking at the Man United vs Arsenal match winner odds, the bookies clearly fancy one team to snatch all three points. A United victory appears unlikely, as they have notched just one league win in seven. The Red Devils have also won their last two league meetings against Arsenal. As a result, a United win is unlikely, and the odds reflect this, with Midnite offering 13/2 for a home victory. A draw might be a better selection, as United are unbeaten in four at home, drawing twice. Ten Hag’s outfit has also lost just once in eight home Premier League matches. With Betfred providing 9/2 odds, backing a United vs Arsenal draw is a decent option. However, we are sticking with in-form Arsenal to win this fixture. The Gunners have shown quality and composure to win 14 of their last 16 league matches. Given United’s struggles, it’s hard to see anything other than an Arsenal triumph on Sunday. This is our match winner pick, and Bet365 has the best odds for an away victory at 2/5.

Over/Under Betting

In addition, we are not expecting a particularly cagey affair between United and Arsenal on Sunday. This is due to United’s defensive struggles. The Red Devils have seen over 3.5 goals in six of their last seven in all competitions. But United have also conceded 18 in this period. Arsenal have also been confident in front of goal lately. The North Londoners have scored three or more goals in three consecutive matches and are the league’s highest scorers with 88. Our goal pick in the United vs Arsenal clash is to go with over 2.5 goals. At 4/11, QuinnBet has the best value for over 2.5 goals at Old Trafford. 

Anytime Goal Scorer Bets

The goals could flow between Man United and Arsenal, and we have selected some key attacking players to back in the anytime scorer market. As United have several key attacking players out or doubtful, we are backing Rasmus Hojlund to strike against Arsenal. The Danish forward has 13 goals in all competitions this season and has eight in his previous 13 Premier League matches. At 3/1, BetUK has the best value for a Hojlund anytime goal on Sunday. Our top anytime scorer pick for this fixture is Arsenal’s Leandro Trossard. The Belgian struck his third goal in four during the Gunners’ 3-0 win over Bournemouth last weekend. Trossard has been in excellent scoring form lately, striking five in his last eight. As a result, we are backing more Trossard goals at Old Trafford and Bet365 is offering 13/8 odds. 

There is plenty at stake for United and Arsenal in this Premier League fixture. United must get three points to avoid missing out on European football next season. Arsenal also cannot afford to drop points in the title race with Man City breathing down their neck. Which of these old rivals will triumph at Old Trafford? Hopefully our Manchester United v Arsenal Premier League Betting Tips have helped you work out that betting conundrum.
