arsenal vs manchester-united Tip Reason:

In what is undoubtedly the standout fixture of the draw, Arsenal take on Manchester United in the 4th round of the FA Cup on Friday at the Emirates. Having won just 4 of their last 9 games, Arsenal come into their knockout tie in patchy form. The Gunners’ inconsistency in terms results has been a constant source of frustration for their supporters, and they have shown little to indicate that steadier performances are on the horizon. In a perfect snapshot of their season so far, Arsenal fell to an extremely disappointing Premier League defeat against West Ham, before recovering to swarm all over Chelsea inside the space of a week. It is worth noting however, that most of Arsenal’s troubles have come on the road this season. Their 2-0 triumph over the Blues at the Emirates was their 3rd home victory on the spin and their 6th win in 7 overall. In fact, only 2 teams, Man City in the league and Spurs in the Carabao Cup, have left the Emirates with a win this season. Manchester United’s task seems tough on Friday then, though with 7 wins from 7 games, confidence in their squad will be soaring. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s rocket-fuelled juggernaut has shown a few signs of slowing down in recent weeks however. Even though United changed their team considerably in the last round of the Cup, they were poor against Reading at Old Trafford. Their subsequent win against Spurs at Wembley in the league had more than a little good fortune about it, and United were underwhelming once again last weekend against a dogged Brighton side. Really, Friday’s game is a clash between two of England’s abstruse teams – both teams are equally capable of producing performances at either end of the spectrum.However, the teams are remarkably consistent when it comes to producing games with goals. Both teams have scored in a whopping 74% of Arsenal’s Premier League matches this season, while United’s equivalent figure stands at an even more eye-watering 78%. Those percentages are the first and second highest in the division. Similarly, over 2.5 goals were scored in 61% and 78% of Arsenal’s and United’s league fixtures this season respectively. In addition, at least 3 goals flew in in 4 of the last 6 meetings between the clubs and in 3 of their last 4 clashes at the Emirates. Their latest skirmish on Friday is also dripping with goalscoring potential. Both defences have kept just 4 clean sheets each in 23 league matches this season, and we expect each backline to be breached again this week. With that considered, the over 2.5 goal & both teams to score combination looks fantastic value for Friday’s fixture. For our correct score prediction, we’re forecasting a 3-2 Arsenal win. The Gunners’ impressive home form is difficult to ignore and with Solskjaer’s harder-working United showing signs of fatigue, we think a first defeat is on the cards.
