On sunday the 10th of October Arsenal welcomes Manchester United over at Emirates Stadium for a top tier clash in the premier league. Van gaals United is the team on everyones lips with their recent success in reestablishing themselves as one of UKs best teams and showing the ability to not just stay in the top five, but also being able to grab the first place in the premier league for the first time in over two years. Wengers men are however not to be counted out on first sight as they have started to live up to what everyone thought they would do before the season started. With arguably one of the premier leagues strongest aqcuistions in Petrc Cehc who looked shaky at first but has started to grow with the team. This game will surely be one for the ages and will feature some of the hotest names in the premier league such as the up and comer Anthony Martial, Alexis Sanchez who scored a true hattrick against Leceister recently, Mesut Özil who has been showing very good shape and many more of the premier leagues top players. As both you and the viking knows, this means that there are plenty of good betting opportunities to take advantage of.
Arsenal will be coming into this game with 3 victories and 2 defeats in their latest 5 games. The most notable of the victories was their most recent victory against Leicester, a game in which Alexis Sanchez scored a true hattrick to turn a 1-1 game to 4-1 in favor of the gunners. Arsenals most notable defeat was in the london derby against Chelsea, a game in which the viking predicted that Petr Cehc would have a rough time against his former team of 11 years. Arsenal has also lost an important champions league meeting against Dinamo Zagreb, mostly due to very big misplays such as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain accidently deflecting the ball into his own goal and Oliver Giroud taking two yellow cards forcing the gunners to face Dinamo Zagreb with 10 men. The viking believes that Arsenal will have taken these games as hard leasons and have grown from them allowing them to play a more focused game then before and it has allowed Petr Cehc to grow into the team having made his bad games and now starting to work on his good ones.
Projected line up: (33) Cech, (24) Bellerin, (4) Mertesacker , (6) Koscielny, (18) Monreal, (20) Flamini, (19) Cazorla, (16) Ramsey, (11) Özil, (17) Sanchez, (14) Walcott
Manchester United will be coming into this game with 4 victories and 1 defeat in their latest 5 games with their defeat being at an away game in the champions league versus PSV Eindhooven. The reds are steamrolling their way through the premier league at the moment, producing impressive performances and results in every game that they´ve played. The viking expects that Uniteds performance this game will be no different maybe even better.

The vikings prediction for the clash between Arsenal and Manchester United is that United will take this one to the bank, in other words; there is extreme value in 3.75 on Manchester United. Both teams will have upcoming important champions league games before this game and as such there will be no rest advantage for either side, you can read the vikings prediction on Manchester Uniteds upcoming game versus Wolfsburg here. The reds are currently ejoying a well earned win streak and betting against a team with a winning mindset is never a good idea, the team just performs on a completly different level when they´re winning games the way United is at the moment.
However the carefull gambler should also take the champions league games into account to see if either team is resting any of their big names for this game, though as the games are “must win games” for both teams we should expect them to bring their full power to both those games and to this game. We can expect this to be a goal heavy game with both sides having a very strong offense and as such; both teams to score and over 2.5 goals is looking very good for this game. The patient and carefull gambler should be looking at the goal picks aswell as Manchester United X/2.
Arsenal – Manchester United 1-2 @ 14.00
