Manchester United vs. Arsenal – EPL, November 1, 2020

| October 30, 2020 4:15 am PDT

A few years ago these two clubs regularly battled it out for the EPL title. Neither is quite as successful at the moment but there are high hopes for both sides this season.

Manchester United still seems to be something of a work in progress but will be confident of winning the points after another fine display in Europe in the week.

I take a look at your betting options here and provide a Manchester United vs. Arsenal prediction and betting pick.

Manchester United vs. Arsenal Odds

Manchester United to Win +107
The Draw +215
Arsenal to Win +234

Manchester United is the slight favorite to win this one with BetOnline and that is probably understandable considering the home advantage. Arsenal has not always been the best of travellers and there is still a question mark about how Mikel Arteta is utilizing some of his better players.

Manchester United vs. Arsenal Match Preview

Manchester United seems to be saving its best form for the Champions League, as this week saw the Red Devils thrash RB Leipzig 5-0. PSG has already been beaten in Paris this season. Marcus Rashford scored a hat-trick against the Bundesliga side and he will now be raring to go on Sunday.

Edinson Cavani was given his first taste of the EPL last weekend as he came on as a sub in the game against Chelsea. He looked like a player who hasn’t taken to the pitch in a few months but, to be honest, most of the others on show looked much the same. The Uruguayan will probably be on the bench once again this Sunday.

Arsenal lost its third game of the season last week, as Leicester took all three points at the Emirates. The Gunners looked strangely out of sorts and it did seem as if Arteta had made a mistake starting Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang out on the right hand side of the pitch. He is the star player in this team, so he needs to be used to his full potential.

Arteta has got a lot of things right this season. But there still seems to be an all too common fragility in the Arsenal squad. The team never seems to perform that well away from home anyway, so there will have to be a concerted effort to improve if anything is to be taken away from Old Trafford.

Manchester United vs. Arsenal Betting Pick

  • Manchester United to Win

United should be buoyed by that incredible thrashing of RB Leipzig in the Champions League and benefit from an extra day off compared to Arsenal, who played on Thursday in the Europa League. Backing Manchester United can sometimes seem like a bad idea but it should be too strong for an Arsenal team that has not really got going yet this season.
