Just a week later after the draw with Tottenham (1-1), Arsenal will play at home against their other main rival in the English football. The performance of The Gunners against the Spurs was good in a tactical plan, and they deserved to win because they had better chances to score goals. Several days later they played as guests against Rennes in Europa League, and the lack of desire and absolute panic of the defence led to a 3-1 loss. Unai Emery still cannot find the right plan for his team, but the earned ten points in the previous five rounds left The Gunners in the fight for Top 4.
The era of Ole Gunnar Solskjær as a manager of Manchester United is going perfectly. Since his appointment, The Red Devils are in fantastic form and are a favourite to be in Top 4 in the Premier League at the end of the season. In the previous three games, Manchester United scored three goals in each of the wins against Crystal Palace (3-1), Southampton (3-2) and PSG (3-1). As we mentioned the fixture against The Parisians, The Red Devils created a miracle and qualified to the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
Manchester United have nine wins in nine games as guests since the appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjær. However, the bookmakers give a better chance this derby to be won by Arsenal. The reason for this is the performance of The Gunners at home. Both sides often allow easy mistakes in defence, and the forwards have the quality to take advantage of this.
