United v Arsenal: Fans' predictions so far

Saturday 03 September 2022 16:00

Having played their part in our battling display at the King Power Stadium just days ago, Manchester United fans are set to generate another electric atmosphere when Arsenal visit Old Trafford this Sunday afternoon.

Last season, the two clubs traded victories, with the Reds seeing off the Gunners in an entertaining contest at M16 before Mikel Arteta's side responded by winning at the Emirates towards the back of the campaign. Both teams finished inside the Premier League's top six positions

Arsenal have since started the campaign in blistering fashion and with our old rivalry set for another chapter this weekend, we asked you the supporters to play our United Predictions game to guess which way the contest will swing this time around.

Play the game now in the United App and you can also predict Erik ten Hag’s starting line-up, the first goalscorer and the Man of the Match.


At the time of writing, Lisandro Martinez tops the charts for the most popular pick, with 29 per cent of the vote. The Argentinian is followed by Bruno Fernandes (13 per cent) and Jadon Sancho (11 per cent).

Lisandro has formed a solid defensive partnership with Raphael Varane in recent weeks. The pair started alongside each other in the victories over Liverpool, Southampton and Leicester City, with our no.6 picking up our Player of the Month accolade for August too.

29% = Lisandro Martinez
13% = Bruno Fernandes
11% = Jadon Sancho
9% = Casemiro
8% = Cristiano Ronaldo


After the duo combined superbly for our only goal against the Foxes, it is no surprise entrants in our predictions game are tipping Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho in equal measure in this category. The England internationals will hope to continue their fluid style of attacking play against the Gunners this weekend.

26% = Marcus Rashford
26% = Jadon Sancho
19% = Cristiano Ronaldo
16% = Bruno Fernandes
6% = Christian Eriksen

Ten Hag: I'm enjoying the tactical challenges


In our latest interview, Erik admits the Premier League is a manager's dream and he watches every game he can.


Given our recent upturn in form that has seen Erik ten Hag's side win three consecutive Premier League matches, supporters are seemingly confident that Arsenal's unbeaten record in the Premier League is destined to be broken upon their visit to Old Trafford. 

Over a third (39.4 per cent) of United fans see the game ending in a 2-1 triumph, with a 2-0 victory (17 per cent) and 3-1 win (10 per cent) coming shortly behind in the predictions so far.

37% = United 2 Arsenal 1
17% = United 2 Arsenal 0
10% = United 3 Arsenal 1
7% = United 1 Arsenal 1 
5% = United 2 Arsenal 2
