On one side, we have the current leaders in Arsenal, who currently have a 5 point lead from 2nd place with a 15 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss in their current campaign.
On the other side, we get Manchester United, who is currently sitting on the 3rd spot and due to a really strong run, in close proximity to taking over 2nd.

Where Can I Watch?
Why Bet on Arsenal
For Arsenal, things are looking rosy right now. A potentially season-defining win in the north London derby took them eight points clear at the top. It was also really special, as it was the first time the Gunners won in the Tottenham Stadium, and the hot climate in the ground showed it.
It was a hugely significant victory, as for the first time this season Arsenal are now favourites to win the Premier League title in both Opta’s predictor model and with the bookmakers.
Despite Manchester City closing the gap to five points after beating Spurs last night, most neutrals easily still have Arsenal as favourites.
Why Bet on Manchester United
Michael Olise’s stunning free kick on the cusp of full-time put an end to Manchester United’s nine-game winning run in all competitions on Wednesday night as Crystal Palace salvaged a 1-1 draw late on.
But Erik ten Hag’s side will still come into this game high on confidence.
The fact remains that United have lost just once in their last 20 matches in all competitions (W16 D3 L1), and their statement victory last weekend against Manchester City felt like a true momentum swing.
Final Betting Analysis: Arsenal vs. Manchester United
Manchester United looked spotty in the attack against Crystal Palace, and very well could have lost if not for the brilliance of David de Gea and Aaron Wan-Bissaka at key junctures.
The Red Devils were second-best after halftime in particular, and Arsenal may attempt to grind the game down early before taking advantage of any openings later in the match.
Arsenal’s best weapon right now is the midfield trio of Granit Xhaka, Thomas Partey, and Martin Odegaard, who should find joy through the middle.
Arsenal will have to keep up with United’s attack to come away with a result, but we have our token on the Gunners to succeed.
