EPL Predictions: Man United vs Arsenal



Arsenal will face their first big test on Sunday afternoon at Old Trafford.

They will clash with a rapidly improving Manchester United side at the Theatre of Dreams.

In their last match, Erik ten Hag’s side eked out a narrow 1-0 winners over Leicester City on Thursday evening.

The Gunners also continued their winning streak with a 2-1 victory over Aston Villa.

Arsenal are flying high after their perfect start.

They won all of their first five fixtures against Crystal Palace, Leicester City, Bournemouth, Fulham and Aston Villa in August.

Head to Head record

This will be the 237th meeting between the two sides.

Arsenal have won 85, drawn 53 and lost 98 of these to Man United.

In the League, it will be their 207th meeting.

The Gunners have picked up 73 wins, 49 draws and lost 84 times.

Team News

Man United’s big ticket acquisition Antony will be on the bench and might get some minutes.

Antony was bought from Ajax for £85.4m and plays in the same position as Sancho.

The other addition to the squad will be Martin Dubravka, who will provide backup and competition to David de Gea.

United have a lot of fitness issues to grapple with.

Winger Anthony Martial is out of contention due to injury.

Facundo Pellistri and Brandon Williams are also injured, adding to Erik ten Hag’s woes.

Full-backs Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw were also absent in the win over Leicester due to minor niggles and it’s hard to say if they will be fully fit.

However, Diogo Dalot and Tyrell Malacia are in good nick and injury-free.

We might see Casemiro and Cristiano Ronaldo playing together in United jerseys for the first time ever.

Ronaldo has a good record against the Gunners scoring both home and away against them last season.

For Arsenal, the midfield duo of Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny are suffering from thigh injuries.

Obviously Arteta is worried about his midfield.

This lead to a frantic attempt to prise away Douglas Luis from Aston Villa in a deadline-day transfer saga, which didn’t succeed.

Worryingly, the goalie Aaron Ramsdale and midfielder Martin Odegaard also sustained knocks in the midweek win over Aston Villa.

Ramsdale might be fine but if Odegaard’s ankle problem persists, Emile Smith Rowe will be his replacement.

Oleksandr Zinchenko is yet to return to team training following a knee injury and is set to miss out again.

Albert Sambi Lokonga is expected to retain his place.

Brazilians Gabriel Martinelli and Gabriel Jesus are fully fit. They have been fantastic for Arsenal this season.

The Gunners have scored 13 goals, third highest in the league – with six coming from the Brazilian duo.

WATCH: Georgina Rodriguez makes huge claim on Cristiano Ronaldo’s retirement in Football




Cristiano Ronaldo

Georgina Rodriguez made a huge claim on the future of her husband and star player, Cristiano Ronaldo, in Football. In a brief interaction with a host recently, Rodriguez was asked about the time left for Cristiano to make an impact at the highest level. Georgina looked honest in her approach to the question of the host and claimed something the fans would not love to hear.

Georgina claimed that the Portugal star has maybe one year more from him at the highest level. She felt that Ronaldo might play two more years before retiring and not more than that. She was however not sure if he would play for just one or two years and added that the Al Nassr star could also play more than that.

Watch the video of Georgina Rodriguez here –


“Cristiano one more year, then it’s over. Maybe two, I don’t know,” said Rodriguez in the little chat she had with the host. The video has gone viral on X and the fans have started sharing it on different platforms. Some of the fans feel that Georgina might be right, while others feel that she could be wrong, given the fitness and longevity of the star player.

Legacy of Cristiano Ronaldo

On the 5th of February, Ronaldo celebrated his 39th birthday. He is currently one of the oldest players in the world. In the past, players at this age would have retired way back. But the fitness and consistency of Ronaldo make him play the sport as long as he wishes. In his career so far, Ronaldo has won many major leagues for Portugal and league teams like Real Madrid, Al Nassr, and Manchester United.

With United, Portugal won some major leagues like the FA Cup and the Champions League. With Real Madrid, the 39-year-old won the leagues like the UCL, Copa Del Rey and La Liga. He won it three consecutive times for Real Madrid. For Portugal, Cristiano had a huge contribution to Portugal. He has the most number of appearances and goals for an international team and won the Euro 2016 with Portugal.

England and Real Madrid player Jude Bellingham was slapped with a Red Card during the La Liga game against Valencia. In the game, the home team, Valencia was leading by 2-0 after 30 minutes before Madrid scored in the injury time of the first half. Vinicius Junior opened the scoring for Madrid while Hugo Duro (27′) and Roman Yaremchuk (30′) scored a goal each.

In the 76th minute, Junior scored an equalizer to keep the team in the game. However, in the injury time of the second half, Bellingham was given a red card as he argued with the referee against calling it a full-time before he could score. In reply, the match official decided to slap the England international with a Red Card. The team coach Carlo Ancelotti wasn’t happy with the verdict as the Three Lions player was making a pass at the time.

“I think what’s just happened is unprecedented. It’s never happened to me,” Ancelotti told reporters.

“We had possession of the ball and the match should have been finished when Valencia had the ball.

“What bothers us is the red card for Bellingham because he didn’t say anything insulting. He was frustrated of course,” said Ancelotti, adding that Bellingham had used a common English swearword when telling the referee it was a goal.

We are annoyed with Jude Bellingham’s Red Card: Carlo Ancelotti

“We were annoyed with Bellingham’s red card. He didn’t say any insults. He said in English ‘it’s a f—ing goal,’ but he was just saying what we were all thinking … [The referee] allowed play to continue. I think he made a mistake.”

“[Bellingham] was clear in what he said,” Ancelotti added. “He was quite vehement [in his reaction] but that’s normal, after what happened. It wasn’t an insult, not at all.”
