Manchester United – Arsenal betting tips for today, April 29, 2018.
Football: England – Premier League
Tip: Home Win
Match Result: 2:1 WON!!!
|After a fine 2-1 win over Tottenham last weekend in the FA Cup semi-final, Manchester United will come into this game full of confidence against an Arsenal side they have had the ascendancy over at home in the Premier League (PL) in recent years.|
|With Champions League (CL) qualification all but assured for United, the season has two objectives remaining: win the FA Cup and make sure they finish above Liverpool! A 1-0 loss at home to West Brom aside, United’s PL form has been pretty decent recently (P7, W6, L1). At home they’ve just lost twice all season (W13, D2, L2).|
|Arsenal are resigned to finishing outside the CL places this season, but can still qualify by winning the Europa League (EL) and giving departing coach Arsene Wenger the send off he craves. That task became all the harder after the first-leg game saw Arsenal squander a 1-0 lead to ten-man Atletico Madrid on Thursday (1-1). Expect Arsenal to rotate in this game ahead of the second leg.|
|Overall though, this season has been another huge disappointment for the North London side. Good home form (W14, D2, L2) has counted for nothing, as away from home the team has come up well short (W3, D4, L9).|
|United won the reverse fixture at the Emirates 3-1 and haven’t lost in the league at home to the ‘Gunners’ since 2006 (W7, D3).|
|Players to watch: Paul Pogba looks like he has responded to José Mourinho’s call for more consistent performances and has provided two assists recently.|
|Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, with six goals in nine appearance since his January signing, will surely start here with the EL in mind, where he is ineligible.|
|Stat attack: Arsenal have lost their last five away PL games – the last time they lost six on the bounce was in 1966!|
|The last time Arsenal beat United in the month of April was in 1978 (D4, L6).|
|United are yet to draw in 2018 in the PL.|
