The match between Arsenal and Manchester United happens to be the most anticipated fixture in the game week. Both teams will be playing their sixth league fixture of the 2022/2023 English Premier League season. The Gunners are above all on the log and would intend to extend their reign at the top of the log when they meet Manchester United.
Erik Ten Hag and his men want all three points against Arsenal to announce their reawakening and also go into the good book of their home crowd after a poor season start. Arsenal have a perfect run to preserve after securing five wins in five matches.
However, the pressure for the top spot seems to be reducing and Arsenal can afford to lose at the theatre of dreams and still retain the top spot. I am sure you are asking yourself how?
When Manchester City who are the closest club in pursuit of the top spot failed to clinch a win against Aston Villa, they caused an offset on the table. Prior to their match against Aston Villa, they were in second place with 13 Points, closely followed by Tottenham Hotspur with 11 points.
Manchester City’s 1-1 draw with Aston Villa couldn’t close the gap or possibly overtake the Both Londoners. They could only add a point to their total point on the log, bringing it to 14.
Tottenham Hotspur solidify their position in third place by securing a much needed win over Fulham, closing the gap between them and second placed Manchester City and Arsenal as well. Both clubs are currently on the same points after playing the same number matches.
As it stands, Arsenal top the league with 15 points and should they lose against Manchester United at Old Trafford, the Gunners still retain their top spot but the gap between the top 3 reduces as the pressure increases.
The match between Manchester United and Arsenal is expected to be an entertaining game. Arsenal are favourites to win going into this encounter based on current form, but they have injury issues currently rocking their boat. Can Manchester United use this to their advantage?
