Game of the weekend in the Premier League will see Manchester United travel to London to take on Arsenal with only three points between the sides. A win for Arsenal could take them above United in the league table and into second only two points behind leaders Manchester City but a win for Manchester United will take them back to the top of the league table. Manchester United have come good in recent weeks with four wins on the trot and Louis Van Gaal's side have looked impressive. Anthony Martial the most expensive teenager in world football has become a sensation and Arsenal fans will get a good look at the "New Henry" after seeing him help Monaco knock Arsenal out of the Champions League last season. Juan Mata has had a tremendous start to the season and his creativity is second to none in the league, an early runner for the league's best player accolade Mata has either assisted or scored in almost every league game this season for United.
Arsenal come into this game off the back of a midweek loss to Olympiakos and have now lost three of their last five games in all competitions. The Gunners looked light up front until Alexis Sanchez found his goalscorign boots last weekend. With Sanchez , Giroud and Walcott firing on all cylinders this is a team that are tough to beat. The summer addition of Petr Cech has left the team with a strong goalkeeper behind what should be a solid defence. In fairness to Cech he hasnt played in two of the three losses suffered by Arsenal in the last five games and questions will be asked of why Arsene Wenger feels the need to change up the keeper for the Champions League games. This is a huge game for Arsenal and although it is too early in the season to say they cant afford to lose it the truth is that they really will not want to fall six points behind United this early in the season.
Another of the big games that is tough to call, Arsenal have home advantage but I am not sure they should be such heavy favourites here. Manchester United at 14/5 is a really tempting bet considering the way both teams are playing. For me though I will take a max bet on Manchester United +1 here as I see Unite shutting down Arsenal's attack and I think Mata, Martial, Depay and Rooney will get at Arenal's vulnerable back four.
