Arsenal take on Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday evening for another renewal of this dramatic rivalry.
Arsenal vs Man United odds
talkSPORT BET and bookies alike aren’t taking any chances on the Gunners extending their unbeaten run this season as they implement Arsenal at odds-on at 3/4.
It does make Manchester United at 16/5 a very tempting price but they’ve struggled already this season and now come up against a well-drilled Arsenal side. In a clash that doesn’t often end in a draw of late, they are 29/10 to share the points.

Arsenal vs Man United predictions
Current form is all we have to go by this early and if that’s the case it should be a much closer match than the odds suggest.
But this fixture always is no matter the extenuating circumstances of the league around them at the time of facing off.
Last season Arsenal won this exact fixture 3-2, but lost the reverse fixture almost exactly a year ago to this game 3-1 at Old Trafford.
That was early on in the season and it was a long subsequent league campaign that saw a lot more success for the Gunners than it did United, despite losing their lead on the title.
This rivalry clash has seen four scorelines go the way of the home side – who have all scored three while not keeping a clean sheet:
- Man United 3-2 Arsenal (Dec 2021)
- Arsenal 3-1 Man United (April 2022)
- Man United 3-1 Arsenal (Sep 2022)
- Arsenal 3-2 Man United (Jan 2023)
Also at Old Trafford last September, there were six yellow cards brandished, five of them coming in the final 20 minutes where things really escalated – similarly, the two winning goals from Marcus Rashford also came in the last 25 minutes.
It should be a similar story this weekend – with a few goals, cards and late drama – especially with the cards being dished out more commonly in comparison to last year with the new rules.
Arsenal vs Man United betting tips
Saka to assist – 23/10
In seven appearances against Manchester United, Bukayo Saka has scored three and assisted twice.
He’s a huge price to get another assist this weekend and looks the most reliable and in-form player out there along with a couple of other Arsenal players in this regard.
Gabriel Jesus could come in to replace Eddie Nketiah in the starting XI but it would be pure guess work ahead of the announcement at 3.30pm on Sunday afternoon.
Jesus made a return from injury against Fulham last weekend coming on as a sub and should be able to get right back into the squad for this important game against his former local rivals when playing for Man City.
Goals and assists can come from all over in this fixture and especially in this Arsenal squad with the likes of Martin Odegaard, Jesus, Saka, Kai Havertz, Declan Rice, Gabriel Martinelli and plenty more.
