Manchester United vs Arsenal will be the closing 7th round game of English Premier League, which will be held at Old Trafford, in Manchester. This should be one of the most interesting games between two grand 6 clubs of English major league. Can Arsenal win a game against a strong opponent on the road? Or like last year they will take points only against outsiders, playing away? Read our thoughts about this exciting Premier League Manchester United vs Arsenal match, here below!

Playing at Old Trafford, Manchester United are not losing to Arsenal since the 2015 year in Premier League. Arsenal won against Man United only once in the last 5 meetings, at Emirates Stadium. Manchester were stronger in 3 matches and drawn the home games last season against Gunners finishing with 2:2 result.

Manchester United

The Reds now stand at 8th place in PL with 8 points after 6 Rounds.  Manchester United started this season with a super-strong win over the Chelsea finishing the game with 4:0 on the scoreboard. However, had troubles in 3 matches in a row as they drew two games and lost once. Away, they failed to win against Wolves and Southampton ending the match with the same 1:1 results. Moreover, they lost at home against Crystal Palace in a very unlucky match. Marcus Rashford missed the penalty at 70th minute and failed to equal the result. At 89th minute, newcomer James scored a goal after Martial assist, however, van Aanholt scored a very late goal at 3rd additional minute and snatched the win at Old Trafford.

In general, they play very questionable football as they struggling in every game and every opponent they face. Right after the draw with Southampton, they played against Leicester at home and scored only one goal from a penalty. They created lots of attacks, but Leicester were even more dangerous than hosts. In Champions League Greenwood scored a late and only one goal against Group outsiders FC Astana. They totally controlled the game, but really struggled to finish the moments. Later they lost against West Ham at Olympic Stadium and showed one more time lots of weaknesses in different positions.

For the last match, we do not pay much attention, since played rotation team. But on the other hand, the rival was Rochdale, and even with the reserve players, the Red Devils had to win easily. But the match came to a penalty shootout where Manchester were better but lost lots of fitness.

Unfortunately, Eric Bailly, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Phil Jones, Martial and Rashford will miss the next game due to injuries. Moreover, several other players like P. Pogba and Luke Shaw are still under question.

Arsenal

Arsenal this year look much better than their opponents. Gunners now at 4h place with 11 points. They lost this season only against Liverpool, as they were obviously better especially playing at Anfield. Away, they won against Newcastle and draw the game with Watford. Moreover, they played brilliantly against Eintracht Frankfurt in Germany in UEFA Europa League meeting. That game they won with 3:0 result, using all the opportunities the got, especially in the end of the match.

At home, Gunners drew only one game against their constant Rival in North London Derby. They played better but thanks to Aubameyang goal at 71st minute, they avoid the lost game. All in all, they have big troubles in defence. They already conceded 10 goals what is the weakest result between 10 first teams in Premier League. Even David Luiz arrival does not help the team to play confidently on the backline. This is the main area, which they need to strengthen to play better.

Kieran Tierney, Konstantinos Mavropanos and Alexandre Lacazette will miss next game against Red Devils.
