Seeley’s Selections – Arsenal v Man United TipsStats
Arsenal v Man United
What once was a “massive” match to decide, the Premier League title is now just a “big” show-down for fourth place when Arsenal host Manchester United at the Emirates on Saturday evening.
The Gunners have a terrible record against United, winning just once in their last 14 clashes but they will never have a better opportunity in ending that unwanted record this weekend.
Arsene Wenger’s side are 23/20 to win here with Boylesports and despite their terrible record, there is some value in that price after what has been a disastrous international break for Louis Van Gaal and United. Five players returned from midweek with injuries which make them major doubts for the weekend.
David De Gea, Luke Shaw, and Robin Van Persie are all injury concerns and Daley Blind and Rafael are not going to feature and join eight others on the long term treatment table.
It really is impossible to get involved in the 5/2 available with Boylesports despite them arriving in the capital on an unbeaten run of six games, until we see the starting XI they have managed to assemble. The Wenger Boys have conceded five goals in their last two games; all late ones, very un-Arsenal like and despite this fixture in recent years not featuring many goals, I find it impossible to see them keeping a clean sheet.
The free-scoring United from the start of the season has disappeared recently and in their last three matches, all have seen less than three goals. Regardless of what personnel appear, it’s impossible not to see goals and Both Teams To Score looks the way to go in the Boylesports BTTS weekend accumulators at 6/10.
Alexis Sanchez has been the star for Arsenal this season banging in eight Premier League goals this campaign. The Chilean has netted the first goal in five of his last six matches and at 9/2 to open the scoring in a game that promises a few, and major injury concerns for the other leading contenders, that’s a nice bit of value.
REMEMBER – DOUBLE BUBBLE – if your first goalscorer selection nets the opener inside the first 20 minutes, Boylesports will double that player’s odds, so if Sanchez nets in that period, you will be paid out at 9/1…Lovely Jubbly.
Both teams to score @ 6/10
Alexis Sanchez First Goalscorer @ 9/2 (9/1 Double Bubble)
