Marquee Match of the Week
Arsenal vs Manchester United will be the top fixture of the weekend. Arsenal are bookmakers’ favourite. It is not because Arsene Wenger has found any secret formula for reversal of Arsenal’s fortunes. But United will be resting their key players ahead of the Europa Leage semi final second league in the mid-week. Arsenal lost against Tottenham, which means they will be finishing behind their North London derby rivals for the first time in recent memory. The loss has also made things difficult for the Gunners in their pursuit of the customary fourth place. They need to win this match to keep the hopes alive.
Prediction for online betting: A draw, perhaps a 1-1 draw (Check match odds).

They are in good form; Philippe Coutinho’s injury suffered in the last match against Watford does not seem to be serious; and they seemed destined to finish in the top three. Southampton, on the other hand, are struggling big time.
