Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has to currently contend with reduced team options. Axel Tuanzebe (Unknown Injury) and Donny van de Beek (Knee Injury) are not ready for selection.
In our opinion, Manchester United could well find it tough to be putting a goal past this Arsenal side who we think will get a goal themselves and run out victorious.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a hard-fought 1-0 victory for Arsenal when the referee blows for full-time.
