Our match prediction:
If it hadn’t been for the 18-year-old Marcus Rashford to prove the saviour in the Europa League tie against Midtjylland, Manchester United would be going into the Arsenal clash low on confidence, but they have now recorded two convincing victories to put the disappointing run behind them. There were plenty of positives in midweek as Memphis Depay also showed signs of recovery after a dismal run, while the good news is that Anthony Martial should return from a hamstring injury. Nevertheless, David De Gea and Chris Smalling could miss out. Arsenal, on the other hand, were not exactly predicted to upset Barcelona in midweek, but the Gunners produced a very good performance and only conceded two goals after they had missed several chances to score. Arsenal will have to recover quickly if they want to keep their title hopes alive, but with their latest away performances far from impressive, we don’t believe they can claim maximum points at Old Trafford.

Highlighted Team (Manchester United):
Over the years Manchester United have established themselves as one of the greatest clubs in world football. The Red Devils have won three European Cup (Champions League) trophies and they have clinched no less than 20 Premier League titles. A number of top-class players were part of Manchester United in the past, but, no doubt, the club’s biggest legend is coach Sir Alex Ferguson, who was in charge of the team for 26 years. During Alex Ferguson’s spell at Old Trafford the club won a number of trophies, but the Red Devils have been struggling in all competitions ever since he retired. Louis van Gaal helped Manchester United win the FA Cup trophy in the 2015/2016 season, with Jese Lingard scoring the winner in the 2-1 triumph over Crystal Palace at Wembley Stadium. The likes of Bobby Charlton, Paul Scholes, Roy Keane, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, George Best and Eric Cantona are the football stars that graced Old Trafford for Manchester United.
