Looking at the EPL standings after 18 rounds played, we see that both teams are in great shape and have a long unbeaten streak. “The Caninis are leading the league and 9 points ahead of today’s opponent, who is on the fourth line, due to what according to bookmakers is the favorite of the upcoming confrontation. We think otherwise and lean toward a draw and low-scoring soccer, which we argue in this article.
This season, Arteta has finally found the threads of his game and his team is doing well. “The Canaries are at the top of the standings with a margin of eight points over their nearest pursuer, making them one of the main contenders to win the long-awaited title. Arsenal have had only one defeat in their last five games, a nil draw at home to Newcastle. But the matches against Wolverhampton, West Ham, Brighton and Tottenham ended with confident victories with a difference of 2 goals. The London side were much more confident than their opponents and deservedly took the points.
Arsenal is productive in the attack and plays quite well in defense, producing the result that fans have been waiting for.
Brighton vs Arsenal 2-4
Arsenal v Newcastle 0-0
Tottenham v Arsenal 0-2
It seems that the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo benefited the Red Devils and many players were able to breathe freely, which began to be positively reflected in the results. In recent matches, MJ demonstrates quite interesting, productive and, most importantly, winning football. The series of victories in all tournaments has already reached nine games in a row. All this despite the fact that Eric Ten Hag’s charges are very reliable in defense. After the victory over Manchester City in the last round, the Mancunians have already scored 38 points, which allowed them to climb to 4th place in the standings, reduce the gap from the second “city” to 1 point and gain a foothold in the Champions League zone. The gap from the leader of the standings is 9 points.
The results of recent matches, as well as the quality of the soccer are pleasing to the fans. The results of the last few games have been encouraging for the fans.
Manchester United vs Everton 3-1
Manchester United v Charlton (League Cup) 3-0
Manchester United – Manchester City 2-1
The last meeting between the teams took place in the first round of the APL. Arsenal outplayed their opponent in terms of possession, shots and other parameters, but not in terms of score. “Red Devils” scored three times, conceding only once in their own goal, which allowed them to score maximum points.
Arsenal have one of the most reliable defensive lines in the APL this season. Manchester City have also fine-tuned the game in the defensive line and in the last 5 rounds missed only twice. Therefore, you should hardly expect excessive productive soccer in the upcoming match.
The teams are equal in strength and it is difficult to identify a clear favorite in the upcoming match. Therefore, it is likely that it will end in a draw.
