Arsenal play host to Manchester United at the Emirates this afternoon, as Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho’s sides clash once again.
The two managers have a long-running feud which includes refusal to shake each others hands, and the Portuguese tactician calling the Frenchman a ‘specialist in failure’.
Jose has said on a number of occasions this week that he will be rotating his team to prioritise the Europa League competition, and playing away to a side like Arsenal, should mean a loss is on the cards.
If you don’t like to risk your money on the words of a manager who could be playing mind-games, then maybe you should look into matched betting which guarantees a return no matter what result.
For me, the even money (2.0) widely available for a home win today is too good to turn down, and that is my banker for the weekend.
The Red Devils are bound to get one on the scoreboard, with Juan Mata and Anthony Martial both likely to feature having missed Thursday’s match, so my next favourite bet of the day is for the Gunners to win and both teams to score which is widely available at 3/1 (4.0) or slightly bigger.
Alexis Sanchez has opened the scoring for the Gunners on nine occasions this season, and the 9/2 (5.5) on offer for him to do so again is too big to turn down.
I fancy a small bet on the Gunners to win 4-1 at a best priced 45/1 (46.0) which looks too big to turn down, especially if Jose does rotate a number of players with Thursday night’s important match in mind.
Arsenal to win – Even money (2.0)
Arsenal win and both to score – 3/1 (4.0)
Alexis Sanchez first goalscorer – 9/2 (5.5)
Correct score Arsenal 4-1 – 45/1 (46.0)
