It is fitting that, after his departure was announced following 22 years in charge of Arsenal, Arsene Wenger will be given a final chance to see his team perform at Old Trafford. Over the years Manchester United and – during his stint at Chelsea – Jose Mourinho have been two of the Frenchman’s greatest foes but, though there is undoubtedly immense and widespread for the coach, it is unlikely to be a particularly friendly environment for the 68-year-old on Sunday afternoon.

Even if there is a warm reception for Wenger, it would only go to underline the fact that his Arsenal side stopped being serious rivals the best part of 15 years ago. With four matches to go, the Gunners are unlikely to finish any higher than sixth in the Premier League, so numerous players are likely to be rested ahead of the crucial second leg of their Europa League semi-final on Thursday against Atletico Madrid – the English club must win following a frustrating 1-1 draw at the Emirates.

One player who will almost certainly feature is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The Gabon striker is ineligible to play in Europe and so should lead the line in Manchester – he can be backed at 2.80 to score at any point and has six goals in nine league games.



United, meanwhile, have had a strong season and could still win the FA Cup when they meet Chelsea at Wembley next month. They are three points ahead of Liverpool having played a game less and a win against Arsenal would go some way to securing the runners-up spot that Mourinho craves. Given that they have lost just twice at Old Trafford this season in the Premier League, it is hard to see a weakened Arsenal coming away with anything, and the odds at Tipbet show this.

United are very strong favourites on the sports betting website and are as short as 1.45 to get their 24th win of an impressive league season. Arsenal are at 7.25 and three points would keep them in contention to overtake Chelsea in the remaining games.
