Arsenal vs Man Utd – Fergie to extend winning streak
Manchester United are 13/8 in the Premier League odds to beat Arsenal and a victory would confirm their best ever streak against the opposition in the tenure of Sir Alex Ferguson.
Not since 1985 have the Red Devils managed to win five successive games against Arsenal, but this could soon be about to change.
Manchester United have held the upper hand over their regular title rivals in recent seasons, remaining unbeaten in the last seven showdowns and winning on six of these occasions.
Arsenal’s odds are also 13/8 to secure victory, but have only triumphed in three of their last 17 Premier League encounters with Manchester United.
Meanwhile, their current form is also relatively poor, as they have won just two of their last 11 fixtures in all competitions.
One thing in their favour is that the Red Devils have found away wins hard to come by in the top flight this season and therefore, a draw may be the most likely result to at 23/10 to edge Manchester United one step closer to the Premier League title.
Manchester United have claimed 3-1 victories on their last two trips to the Emirates Stadium and it is 20/1 that this is the outcome.
Furthermore, Park Ji-Sung has found the target in his last three starts against Arsenal and looks overpriced in the first goalscorer market at 11/1, while it is 4/1 that he strikes at any time within the 90 minutes.
Park’s chances of starting are aided by the fact that Paul Scholes is serving the final match of a three-game ban, Darren Fletcher is injured and Ryan Giggs is expected to be rested.
Arsenal with be without Abou Diaby because of a calf injury, while Thomas Vermaelen is not ready to participate, despite featuring for the reserves in midweek.
A £30 stake on the scorecast of Park scoring first and Manchester United beating Arsenal 3-1 would return £3750. New customers can sign up here for a free £30 bet.
