Louis van Gaal has seen his side secure back to back victories against Shrewsbury Town and FC Midtjylland to ease some of the pressure on the Dutch manager.
Arsenal head to Old Trafford looking to bounce back from the disappointment of their 2-0 Champions League defeat at the hands of Barcelona on Tuesday night.
Here, by using the information from www.gamblingsites.com, we take a look ahead to Sunday’s crunch Premier League clash.
For the first time in Premier League history, Arsenal are the favourites to claim victory at Old Trafford.
The Gunners are tipped by many to have their best chance of winning the Premier League title for many seasons this year and are currently third in the top flight table. Arsenal are priced at odds of around 13/10 to beat United on Sunday, with the draw available at 23/10.
United, meanwhile, are looking to reignite their hopes of securing a top-four finish this season. The Red Devils started the weekend in fifth place in the table and six points adrift of the top four.
Van Gaal’s men are priced at odds of around 11/5 to beat Arsenal this weekend.
Much has been made of Arsenal’s Champions League defeat in midweek, but the fact that they may now be on their way out of Europe’s elite club competition could help them focus their energy on challenging for the Premier League title.
The Gunners have not lifted the top-flight trophy since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 season and have not won the league since their move from Highbury to Emirates Stadium.
It remains to be seen if defender Gabriel Paulista will return to the side after he missed Arsenal’s recent games with a slight hamstring injury. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, meanwhile, is out for a number of weeks with a knee injury.
