Arsenal Ascending

A few weeks ago this would have looked like an away win, but dynamics and form shift quickly. The Gunners can claim a league double over a stumbling United.

The bookies have Manchester United down as favourites here, and of course their away record is outstanding, but I think it ends here.

It wasn’t just the home defeat to basement boys Sheffield Utd which hurts the Red Devils, it was the lacklustre performance. The Solskjaer era has been defined by drastic momentum swings more than any I can remember in the modern era at a big club.

Arsenal have turned a corner themselves with 16pts picked up from a possible 18. Lacazette is rejuvenated, while the youngsters Saka and Smith Rowe have breathed new life into Arteta’s masterplan.

The first goal could shape this one so we’re backing HT: Arsenal - FT: Arsenal at best odds of 4/1 with Skybet. The Gunners have dominated this fixture recently (W3 D1 L0) and are hunting down the top-four again.

Odds correct at time of publishing: 09:48 30th Jan, 2021 but subject to change
