Manchester United - Arsenal Prediction and Preview (04.09.2022)
Sunday at 16:30, the Old Trafford stadium from Manchester will host the derby of the 6th round of the Premier League between Manchester United and Arsenal London. The derby pits two in-form teams against each other, with the hosts coming off the back of three consecutive wins, while the visitors come off the back of five consecutive wins. The last direct confrontation took place in the second leg of last season and was won by Arsenal 3-1 at home.
Manchester United is coming after the 1-0 victory obtained in the last stage away from Leicester, the only goal being scored by Jadon Sancho in the 23rd minute, this being the second goal this season of the midfielder who came from Borussia Dortmund after a season. In the two games played at home this beginning of the season, Manchester United was defeated by Brighton 2-1 and won the derby with Liverpool, also with a score of 2-1. Last season, Manchester managed a 3-2 victory against Arsenal, two goals being scored by Cristiano Ronaldo.
Arsenal wants to get involved in the fight for the title this season, and the beginning of the season seems to prove them right, considering the five successful victories in the first five rounds. The first real test for Mikel Arteta and his players will take place today away from Manchester, and in the event of a victory, they will be the only team with the maximum score after six rounds. Last round, Arsenal clearly dominated the confrontation with Aston Villa, but the final score was only 2-1 for the Gunners.
