In-form Manchester United are looking to build another long unbeaten streak but Sunday's match against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in London might prove quite tough for them. The reverse fixture was a spectacular one and it ended 2-2 as Manchester United fought back from 1-0 and 2-1 down with goals from Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard. The two teams have also met in the FA Cup in January and the Red Devils won that match 3-1 in London, with goals from Lingard, Martial and Alexis Sanchez. Overall, Manchester United have won three of the last six direct matches in all competitions, while Arsenal have grabbed just one win.
Arsenal's terrible away form was on display again this week as they got beaten 3-1 at Rennes in the first leg of the Europa League last-sixteen. However, the Gunners are unbeaten in their last four Premier League matches and have won all of them except the North London derby against Tottenham last week, which ended 1-1. That result dropped the Gunners to fifth place, one point behind Manchester United, so this match could be crucial in the race for a top-four finish this season. Lucas Torreira is suspended for this match, while Hector Bellerin, Danny Welbeck and Rob Holding are out injured.
Manchester United had their own share of European football this week but their match ended in glory as they won 3-1 at Paris Saint-Germain to overturn the first-leg deficit and advance to the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals against all odds. That result puts manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in a great position to get the job on a permanent basis after his interim contract expires at the end of the season, but a top-four finish in the Premier League would definitely help. Paul Pogba was suspended for the Champions League match and will return to the starting eleven on Sunday, but Antonio Valencia, Matteo Darmian, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard, Alexis Sanchez, Phil Jones, Ander Herrera, Nemanja Matic and Anthony Martial are still very likely to miss out through injury.
Arsenal: Leno - Maitland-Niles, Sokratis, Koscielny, Kolasinac - Guendouzi, Xhaka - Mkhitaryan, Ramsey, Iwobi - Lacazette
Man United: De Gea - Young, Smalling, Lindelof, Shaw - Fred, McTominay, Pogba - Pereira - Lukaku, Rashford
My prediction: Manchester United to win 2-1, the Red Devils are in much better shape than Arsenal and their confidence is also much higher.
Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:
Arsenal win - 2.40
Draw - 3.60
Man United win - 3.00

That's been the first United loss under Solskjaer in the PL and despite the first minutes of it have shown Arsenal are quite keen to get a result it's still kind of disappointing for all United fans I guess the way they've allowed both goals and didn't scored on their clear cut opportunities beside having 3 or 4 of those.
In the end United were probably outplayed tactically as well and this match just have to lend United players and the coaching staff after the European triumph midweek.
