Premier League betting preview: Man Utd v Arsenal
Man Utd clash with Arsenal tonight in a mouth-watering Premier League contest.
Third-placed United sit one point behind the table-topping Gunners with a game in hand, and welcome back Rio Ferdinand and Paul Scholes following the pair’s respective injury problems. Wes Brown and Jonny Evans have been ill but both are fit to play.
Arsenal defender Kieran Gibbs is out with the ankle injury he suffered during last week’s Champions League game with Partizan Belgrade, while Cesc Fabregas is said by manager Arsene Wenger to have only a “small chance” of playing. Johan Djourou is a doubt but could feature.
Bet365 make Man Utd the 10/11 favourites for the match, with Arsenal offered at 3/1. The draw is priced at 5/2. Wayne Rooney is favourite in the first goalscorer market at 9/2, followed by Dimitar Berbatov and Javier Hernandez at 5/1 and Marouane Chamakh and Robin Van Persie at 7/1.
