Welcome to our Arsenal vs Manchester United preview, prediction and head to head analysis. To some, Arsenal season’s is proving to be rather typical. They have done well against the smaller clubs, but come up short against the big ones. A draw and home to Liverpool and a loss away to Chelsea lend credence to this opinion. However wins against Crystal Palace, Newcastle, Stoke and Leicester have taken them to 4th in the Premier League, but they need to get a result from this to stay in touch with the leaders.

Manchester United started the season well, but then had a hiccup against Swansea and Newcastle. They were back to winning ways against Liverpool and haven’t looked back with wins at Southampton and at home to Sunderland. Their neighbours City meanwhile have slipped up in the last few weeks and allowed United to grab top spot in the League. If they want to stay there, they must win this and increase that winning streak.
