Manchester United in round 5 of the English Premier League. The match will take place at Old Trafford (Manchester) on Sunday, September 4, 2010.
Last season, the Red Devils fell short of expectations. They invited ten Hag. He was able to spend a lot time rebuilding the “Red Devils”, in preparation for the new season. Eric’s debut was a complete failure. He lost at Old Trafford to Brighton 1-2, then he was awarded 4 unanswered goals by Brentford – all in the first half. Two ways were taken to address this. They were able to negotiate more interesting deals, even though it looked like they had overpaid. They bought Casemiro, Anthony, and also loaned Dubravka. The second was that the Dutchman quickly reacted to the errors. In a principled confrontation against Liverpool, he won 2-1 with the victory of his opponent. The result was almost the same. However, the emphasis was not on the game but the outcome. The Mancunians won 1-0 at Leicester and Southampton.
Although the Gunners appeared to be improving, it was easy to see that they had made progress compared with their failure in 2020/2021. Mikel signed Zinchenko and Gabriel Jesus, whom he was familiar with as Guardiola’s former assistant at Manchester City. Fabricio Vieira, Porto, also cost a lot but he missed the start due to injury. Mikel was pleasantly surprised by his wards’ unexpectedly strong start to the new championship. Only the “red-whites”, who have not lost points, are the only ones to do so so far. This is a feat that no other team can claim, not even the “citizens”. Even though there were initially confident results, the final score was 3-0 with Bournemouth, 4-2 with Leicester and 2-0 with Crystal Palace. Gabriel Magallans scored in the 86th minute to secure the final 2-1 victory for Fulham. Martinelli quickly restored the handicap and allowed “Aston Villa” to rebound in the second half. The final score was 2-1.
Gunners had a streak of five matches unbeaten in head-to–heads. Only in December, Manchester United won 3-2 at home. The “Gunners”, however, retaliated in April with a final 3-1. If you take a look at the odds, this confrontation appears to be a duel between fairly equal opponents. This pair won’t let you down. We recommend placing a wager with a total of 2.5 goals.
Prediction: More than 2.5 goals.
