Manchester United set for final tussle with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger

Manchester United welcome Arsenal to Old Trafford this weekend aiming to strengthen their grip on second place in the Premier League.

United need just seven points from their remaining four matches to end the campaign as runners-up behind champions Manchester City, but the visitors are expected to be fired up for Sunday’s fixture.

The home side are priced at 1/2 to win the game, with Arsenal on offer at 11/2 and the draw available at 10/3.

Arsene Wenger’s announcement that he will end his 22-year association with Arsenal at the end of the season adds a fascinating edge to the match and the Frenchman will be eager to make his last visit to Old Trafford a memorable one.

United’s only injury concern for the game is back-up goalkeeper Sergio Romero, although Mourinho could make changes to his starting XI with the FA Cup final against Chelsea just a few weeks away.

Arsenal’s visit to Manchester comes in between their two Europa League semi-final ties against Atletico Madrid and Wenger may also be tempted to rest some of his star players on Sunday.

Mohamed Elneny definitely misses the game with an ankle injury, while both Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Jack Wilshere are battling back to fitness.

Mourinho’s side ran out 3-1 winners in the reverse fixture at the Emirates Stadium back in December and they can be backed at 11/1 to match that result this weekend.

United have suffered just four defeats in their last 22 meetings with Arsenal in all competitions and a victory this weekend would provide the perfect platform to seal second place behind City.

The Red Devils follow up the Arsenal game with visits to Brighton & Hove Albion and West Ham United, before rounding off their season at home to Watford.

Arsenal’s hopes of derailing United’s bid to finish second are complicated by the fact they face those two huge Europa League ties against tournament favourites Atletico.

Success in that competition would send Arsenal into next season’s Champions League and that will surely be Wenger’s main focus, no matter how much he’d like to enjoy a final hurrah on his last trip to Old Trafford.

The Gunners have not won at United in the Premier League since 2006, although they have drawn 1-1 in two of their last three visits. They are priced at 15/2 to repeat that scoreline on Sunday.

Arsenal’s exertions in the Europa League could leave them vulnerable this weekend and backing United at odds of 11/4 to win both halves could pay dividends.
