Betting Tip: Manchester Utd +0.50 @ 5/6 with ladbrokes

The last time Arsenal beat United in the league? That would be 1 May 2010 when Aaron Ramsey scored the only goal of the game.

Since then, it has been five wins for the Red Devils and three draws, although the Gunners did win 2-1 at Old Trafford in the FA Cup last season on the way to claiming this trophy for the second season running.

Nevertheless, while Arsenal can play the more attractive and free-flowing football, there seems to be no team more pragmatic than Manchester United who are getting the job done on a weekly basis.

Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin lend some seriously good defensive midfield options alongside Michael Carrick, allowing Memphis Depay and Anthony Martial plenty of freedom in attack and Wayne Rooney is even chipping in with the odd goal.

Plenty of guts were on display to overcome a decent Wolfsburg team a night after Arsenal had floundered at home to Olympiakos and the bad news for the London team is that Laurent Koscielny is injured for this clash.

We might see a better Gunners defensive performance than that Champions League debacle although Per Mertesacker and Gabriel Paulista could be exposed, while it’s a big game for Francis Coquelin in the Arsenal boiler room.

Alexis Sanchez can make the Gunners tick and Arsene Wenger will hope that the pace and trickery of Theo Walcott can produce joy against the untested Daley Blind at centre-half.

However, you have to go with United at the prices, with Louis van Gaal’s team in the business of getting the right results and they can produce a gutsy display in this encounter.

Martial and Depay have lightning pace and we haven’t even mentioned Juan Mata who has been racking up the assists in typically understated fashion.
