EPL Preview: Man U’s resurgence could start against Gunners

Fri, Nov 18, 2:01pm by Staff Writer

Manchester United can play their way back into the top five when they host Arsenal to open round 12 of the Premier League on Saturday.

Sixth-placed United is beset by injury concerns in the week back after the international break, with Luke Shaw, Marouane Fellaini, Antonio Valencia and Wayne Rooney all yet to be cleared to play.

Adding to manager Jose Mourinho woes is the loss of striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic to a one-match ban.

Arsenal meanwhile, are without right back Hector Bellerin to an ankle injury and Santi Cazorla with an Achilles strain.

William Hill has United as slight favourite for the match, paying $2.60 for the win, $2.75 for the loss and $3.30 for a draw.

Much of United’s favouritism is based on Mourinho’s strong record against Arsenal, but Gunners manager Arsene Wenger played down past results.

“It’s between two clubs and two teams and I think I can understand that people want to create controversy, but it’s not that that makes the audience,” Wenger said. “What will make the audience is the quality of the game.”

Liverpool, in the unaccustomed top spot this week, can hold onto their lead with a strong performance at Southampton.

Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana is set to miss the match against his former club after being injured in England’s draw with Spain this week.

One player who will be facing his former team will be former Southampton forward Sadio Mane, who has scored six goals in his 10 appearances with his new club.

The Reds are favourites to take the points, with $2.05 for a win, $3.50 for a loss and $3.40 for a draw.

Chelsea, just a point off the league lead, are the heavy favourites to down Middlesbrough at just $1.50 for a win, $7 for a loss and $4 for a draw.

Manchester City are due for a reversal of form and should produce it at Crystal Palace.

City has gone four games against a win, but is paying $1.53 to take the three points, with $6 for a loss and $4.20 for a draw.

Fifth-placed Tottenham should stay in touch of the lead with a victory at West Ham, with $1.55 on offer for a victory, $6 for a loss and $4 for a draw.

Everton can also challenge for the top-five when they travel to relegation-bound Swansea, paying $1.60 to claim the win. The Welsh club is at $5 for a home win, with $4.20 for a draw.

Stoke are slight favourites to take the points from their trip to Bournemouth, with $2.25 for the win against $3.20 for a loss and $3.30 for a draw.

Last placed Sunderland are paying $2.15 for a win at Hull, with $3.50 for the loss and $3.25 for a draw, while West Bromwich Albion are solid $1.95 favourites to beat Burnley at home.

Reigning champions Leicester, meanwhile, could claim their fourth win of the season when they travel to Watford. Leicester are at $2.50 for the win against $2.80 for a loss.

The 12th round of the Premier League kicks off with United v Arsenal at 11.30pm Saturday AEST.

Suggested Bet: Man Utd to win into Tottenham to win at $4.03
