Arsenal hosts Manchester United in the big derby of the 21th round of the Premier League
Arsenal hosts Manchester United in the big derby of the 21th round of the Premier League. It’s going to be a thrilling night at the Emirates, so let’s discuss this game in our English Premier League predictions.
Before their game against Chelsea on Sunday Arsenal were 12th in the league with 24 points, which is clearly not where they would like to be at the moment. The new manager Mikel Arteta is still without a win since he was appointed at the club, but the young Spaniard is hopeful of changing the team’s mentality and the way these players are performing. Clearly Arsenal have a better team than what they are showing at the moment.
In their last game Arsenal made a draw during the debut of Mikel Arteta. The Gunners had a visit to Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium which ended with a 1-1 draw. The Cherries scored first during the first half, but after the break Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang equalised for Arsenal.
In this game Arteta started the young star Nicolas Pepe from the bench, but recently he said that the young Ivorian could turn into a top player in future. Maybe this is a sign that Pepe will have more starts now?
Manchester United enjoyed a second consecutive win in the league on Saturday. The Red Devils visited Burnley at the Turf Moor and prevailed with goals from Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford. Because of these two wins in the last two games United are now 5th and just one point behind the 4th Chelsea.
It’s important to note that Manchester United will have a day more for recovery compared to Arsenal. In this holiday schedule one day could actually mean a lot.
That’s our English Premier League predictions for the game between Arsenal and Manchester United at the Emirates on Wednesday. It’s going to be a great derby, we don’t doubt it!
