Arsenal host Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday in what has become a massive fixture in the Premier League's title race. Arsenal are surprise league leaders and currently hold a five-point advantage over Manchester City as they eye a first Premier League title since 2004. As we buildup to one of the important fixtures of the season so far, here at betting.bet you can find the very best free bet offers and match odds from our partners at William Hill.
Arsenal have made their best-ever start to a Premier League campaign having taken 47 points for their first 18 matches. The Gunners will be buoyed by their comfortable 2-0 win in against Spurs in the north London derby last weekend.
Ironically, Arsenal's only league defeat this season came against Manchester United in the reverse fixture at Old Trafford.
Manchester United will be reeling after surrendering the lead late on against Crystal Palace last time out but they're currently enjoying an unbeaten run in all competitions that stretches back to November 6th.
Team News - Casemiro Blow
Dropping two points at Selhurst Park wasn't the only blow to Manchester United ahead of Sunday's trip to the Emirates. A late booking for Casemiro means that the Brazilian midfielder is suspended and will not feature against Arsenal.
Arsenal v Manchester United: Head-to-head
As mentioned, Manchester United are responsible for Arsenal's only Premier League defeat so far this season. However, their record at the Emirates Stadium has been far from ideal in recent seasons. It's over four years since Manchester United last won away at Arsenal in the league. The corresponding fixture Iast season ended 3-1 in Arsenal's favour thanks to goals from Nuno Tavares, Bukayo Saka and Granit Xhaka.
There has been at least four goals scored in each of the last three meetings between these two heavyweights and we're optimistic about the chances of a high-scoring match on Sunday. Over 2.5 match goals or both teams to score are both well-priced at 8/11 and 4/6 respectively.
Marcus Rashford is one of the league's most in-form players and will attract plenty of support in the goal scorer markets. Rashford has eight goals in Manchester United's last eight matches in all competitions and the England forward is 9/4 to score at any time on Sunday. Alternatively, you can boost your odds by backing Rashford to score first at 13/2.
Over the years Arsenal versus Manchester United has forged a reputation as a fiery encounter.
