Arsenal vs Manchester United – Premier League: The match between Arsenal and Manchester United is another episode…
On the long list of duels between Arsène Wenger and José Mourinho, two managers that have left their styles marked on the Premier League.
If the French maintained his image of being the manager of attacking football, even though that hasn’t always translated into positive results, the Portuguese is the manager more linked to the speech of doing whatever it takes to win. Those trends have made them clash a few times.
Looking at the statistical data of both teams on the current edition of the Premier League, we reach the conclusion that despite the different speeches, the results of their behaviors tends to even out.
And if Arsenal has improved on the collective dynamic they present, Manchester United has been managing the talent they have very well, as well as the idea of defensive safety as the basis imposed by their manager.
The Gunners are on a streak of good results, with 3 consecutive wins where they haven’t conceded a single goal.
The 2-0 against Tottenham marked the beginning of that sequence, with the slight win over Burnley and the rout against Huddersfield completing it.
Manchester United is also coming off 3 consecutive victories on the Premier League, with routs against Newcastle and Watford and a minimal margin win over Brighton.
It will be natural to see Arsenal taking most of the initiative of the match this Saturday, but Manchester United has all options available to respond in the same fashion to Arsène Wenger’s team.
José Mourinho should keep his most speedy elements in the wings to try and break his rival’s offensive dynamic.
Arsenal vs Manchester United – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Still, the goal scoring moment will be fundamental. An early goal can open the flood gates for a match with more risks from both sides.
