Martin Keown states his prediction for Arsenal v Man United
The Arsenal legend is tipping the Gunners to ease to a 2-1 win over Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday evening
Martin Keown is tipping Arsenal to damage Manchester United’s title hopes on Saturday evening with a 2-1 win at the Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners have been in a rich vein of form in recent weeks following three successive Premier League victories.
Arsenal produced their best performance of the 2017-18 campaign in a 2-0 win against Tottenham Hotspur in the north London derby at The Emirates at the start of November.
The Gunners were fortunate to secure three points at Turf Moor last weekend after Alexis Sanchez netted an added-time penalty to secure a 1-0 win over Burnley.
Mesut Ozil scored one goal and made two assists in a 5-0 victory over Huddersfield Town at The Emirates on Wednesday night to leave Arsene Wenger’s men four points behind second-placed Manchester United.
The Red Devils have beaten Newcastle United, Brighton and Watford in their last three Premier League games following a 1-0 loss to defending champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge before the most recent international break.
Manchester United battled to a goalless draw with Liverpool at Anfield but Romelu Lukaku has only scored one goal in his last 10 outings in all competitions.
Former Arsenal defender Keown is tipping Wenger’s side to secure a 2-1 win over Mourinho’s Manchester United side at The Emirates on Saturday evening.
“t’s never easy against Manchester United but I’m going for a 2-1 Arsenal win,” Keown told the Daily Mail.
“The Tottenham victory gave Arsenal a great feeling and victory would put them just a point behind United.”
