Premier League tips: Best bets for Man Utd v Arsenal

Adrian Mills' tips for Sunday's huge clash at Old Trafford include a comfortable win for the visitors with an in-form winger finding the net.

Sunday’s only Premier League game is the big one of the weekend, as Arsenal travel to Manchester United.

It’s a must-win game for the Gunners, while a positive result for United essentially hands the title to bitter rivals Man City.

The hosts – and manager Erik ten Hag in particular – could use a positive outcomeafter Monday night’s 4-0 hammering at Crystal Palace.

That’s made the Red Devils heavy underdogs for Sunday’s clash, especially given Arsenal’s brilliant run of form in 2024.

Best bets

Leandro Trossard to score anytime @ 23/20

Draw or Arsenal & BTTS – No @ 13/8

Arsenal to win 3-0 @ 9/1

Trossard stands out for Gunners

Arsenal have been in great scoring form of late, with the front three of Bukayo Saka, Kai Havertz and Leandro Trossard all impressing in recent games. That trio should be excited to face a United side which has conceded 18 times across their last seven matches.

Of the players leading the betting in the anytime goalscorer market, Trossard looks like the best one to back. The former Brighton winger has scored in three of his last four games for the Gunners, while he has found the net in five of his last eight appearances despite being limited to some cameo roles.

Trossard’s good form has seen him start each of the last four games and he’s expected to feature at Old Trafford. The Belgian should cut in from the left wing to run at make-shift centre-half Casemiro, so back him to add to his great scoring form.

United looking hopeless up top

While United’s defensive issues have taken the headlines, it’s worth noting they offered next to nothing going forward against Palace on Monday.

United have little resembling a coherent attacking approach and they struggled to deal with the Palace press. Given that Arsenal are one of the most aggressive sides in the league out of possession, the hosts look set for a horrid time going forward.

Arsenal have won three of their last four league games to nil, while they’ve kept a clean sheet in six of their last seven league trips. Their set-up seems to make them stronger defensively on the road, while United look lost going forward.

United not to score is 8/5, but there’s a slightly better price on Arsenal double chance and both teams to score – no at 13/8.

Gunners should record a comfortable win

The visitors deserve to be heavy favourites and this clash shouldn’t be close. The visitors have scored 27 times in eight league trips in 2024, while they are expected to shut out the hosts.

United have conceded exactly three times in all three losses to Man City and Arsenal this term. The Red Devils have also conceded three times in three of their five home defeats in the league this season.

The Gunners can match that tally, especially given that United have conceded close to three goals per game in recent weeks. Take the visitors to record a 3-0 win at 9/1.
