Arsenal have been on an impressive run of form as of late and look poised to pull off a victory against Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday. The Gunners are currently first place on the Premier League table with 47 points and Manchester United possess 39. This match will be decisive for the Premier League title race between these two teams, so there is plenty of incentive for Arsenal to win.

The Londoners can take confidence from their last result, where they steamrolled Tottenham Hotspur 2 nil at its home turf. What was most encouraging about this victory is that Arsenal managed to score two goals to win this game away from home at a place that had stopped them from winning there for years hence signaling that the gunners had reached a different level in the North London Derby rivalry with Tottenham Hotspur.

Arsenal’s defensive organisation has significantly improved over the last few weeks and could be key in shutting down Manchester United’s forwards. The likes of William Saliba and Gabriel Magalhaes along with Oleksandr Zinchenko will be instrumental in preventing quick counters and long balls finding their way inside the Arsenal area for dangerous chances as that’s one of the strengths of Erik Ten Hag’s men.

Further supporting Arsenal’s chances is that Manchester United will be without their star midfielder Casemiro who will not be able to participate in this game since he is suspended for having picked up five yellow cards. His absence will be a big blow for Manchester United since the Brazilian international has been one of their best players since the league returned after the World Cup.

Finally, there is great momentum around the club in North London currently and this can be seen amongst fans but more importantly within the team itself. After enduring many seasons of hurt, everyone associated with Arsenal has started believing that they can indeed win the Premier League this season. All these reasons make it easy to see why Arsenal are heavy favorites coming into Sunday’s clash against Manchester United.
