Manchester United Looking for 4th Straight Win
After a horrible start to the 2022-23 season, the Red Devils are now on a three-game win streak. It started with a 2-1 win over Liverpool at Old Trafford in which Manchester United players totally outplayed their opponents in all aspects of the game.
They then went on to win another two games, although not by a great margin. They beat both Southampton and Leicester City 1-0, which is probably the reason why the Man United odds in Sunday’s game against Arsenal have changed. The Red Devils just haven’t been very impressive lately.
However, this doesn’t mean they don’t have an impressive roster. On the contrary, they look super strong, especially after signing Casemiro from Real Madrid and Anthony from Ajax late in the summer transfer window.
The reason why they haven’t been blowing out their opponents is that their coach Erik ten Haag has decided his boys need to play a more conservative style of soccer. So far, it seems to be working.
Will Arsenal Stay at the Top of the Prem for Another Week?
Arsenal has five wins after five rounds of the 2022-23 Premier League, which sure is a record worth praise. However, one must keep in mind that the Gunners haven’t faced too hard opponents so far. The teams they defeated this season are:
- Crystal Palace (2-0 win on the road)
- Leicester City (4-2 win at home)
- Bournemouth (3-0 win on the road)
- Fulham (2-1 win at home)
- Aston Villa (2-1 win at home)
This Sunday, they’re locking horns with a much better team. Plus, their next opponent has players who have way more experience in big matches. It’s no surprise knowing that the average age of Arsenal’s starting XI in the previous game was just 23.4.
