Arsenal vs Manchester United Betting Tips: Rashford set to continue good scoring run

December 31, 2019 0 By JohnValbyNation

The Red Devil has already struck more goals this season than in any other campaign and our tipster is backing another strike on New Year’s Day

Mikel Arteta continues the search for his first win as Arsenal manager when Manchester United travel to north London on Wednesday night.

The Gunners have drawn two and lost one under the tutelage of their former captain, most recently losing at home to Chelsea despite leading 1-0 with seven minutes left.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored Arsenal’s only two goals since Arteta took over and is 5/6 (1.83) favourite to continue that streak by netting against Man United on New Year’s Day.

His strike partner, Alexandre Lacazette has managed just five goals this season but is Evens (2.0) to score against the Red Devils for the second time in four league games against them.

For the visitors, Marcus Rashford is already having his best Premier League season with 12 goals and will surely prove a popular choice at 11/8 (2.37) with bet365.

A strike at the Emirates Stadium would mark just the second time in his career that the striker has scored in three consecutive Premier League games, having previously netted in four straight in December 2018-January 2019.

Anthony Martial has four goals in his last five Premier League games and can be backed at 13/8 (2.63) to continue his good run with a goal against Arsenal.

Teenager Mason Greenwood has eked his way into Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s fold this season and has scored twice in his last three league games, although the unlikelihood of him starting makes the 13/8 (2.63) quote difficult to justify.

Arsenal’s record signing Nicolas Pepe is yet to substantiate his hefty transfer fee with just two Premier League goals this season but is 15/8 (2.87) to make his mark on Wednesday.

Due to injury, Paul Pogba has not started a game since the reverse fixture between these sides in September and can be backed at 9/4 (3.25) to score his first Premier League goal of the season.

Attackers Daniel James and Jesse Lingard are both available at 5/2 (3.50) with bet365, whilst Arsenal winger Reiss Nelson is 3/1 (4.0) and Mesut Ozil out at 15/4 (4.75).

Ozil was largely frozen out under Unai Emery but has started nine of Arsenal’s last 10 league games and is searching for his first Premier League goal since April.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.

Rashford to score anytime at 11/8 (2.37) for a 1pt stake at bet365
