Manchester United vs Arsenal
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 4 September 2022
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Old Trafford.
Arsenal have easily been the best team in the English top flight this time around and are of course placed top-most in the table. It goes without saying that they have a 100-percentage winning record so far. Meanwhile Manchester United are slowly trying to turn around their campaign.
They had started their season on a disastrous note. They lost their first two fixtures and the second one of those was a 4-0 loss against Brentford, who were promoted to the top flight only a season before.
But ever since they have managed to slightly turn around their campaign. They did register a win against arch-rivals Liverpool and then they followed it up with a hard-fought victory against Southampton.
However, they have a real test awaiting them this weekend at the Old Trafford.
The Gunners are the only team in the whole tournament not to have dropped a single point so far. After five match-days they have registered five wins on the board and only Manchester City and Liverpool have scored more goals than them in the competition.
Both the Red Devils and the Gunners are considered to be titans of the English top flight and they will be eager to take on each other. The reason being, a win this weekend will be a huge confidence-boost for either of these squads and both of them have great objectives in front of them as well.
By the looks of things expect goals to come from either end of the pitch this Sunday.

Manchester United vs Arsenal Prediction & Analysis
At present the Red Devils are on a two game-winning streak and in the process they had even registered a victory against none other than Liverpool.
And though they had started their campaign on a poor note it finally seems that Erik ten Hag’s tactics are clicking for the squad.
On the other hand, the Gunners are on a 6-fixture winning streak, and they had also won 12 of their previous 13 matches. Note that they had also scored a total of 19 goals from their past six games.
Taking into account these observations anticipate a high-scoring thriller this weekend
