FOOTBALL - EPL - UNITED vs ARSENAL

Old rivals Manchester United and Arsenal will light up the English Premier League on matchday seven at Old Trafford. The hosts United (eighth, eight points) start the round well behind their visitors Arsenal (fourth, 11 points). By the time this match kicks off on Monday night, United might find themselves in the scrappy mid-table.

The Red Devils are in awful form off late, needing penalties to defeat Rochdale in the League Cup. Even in the Premier League, United have won just once in their last five league games. Arsenal have struggled too, with just one win in four Premier League matches. However, a strong attack gives the Gunners vital edge in this encounter.

Manchester United Preview

United haven’t lost a Premier League match at Old Trafford since 2006. However, the spate of injuries raise the concerns. Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial are out with injuries, while Paul Pogba remains a doubt.

That leaves you with little choice from United side for your fantasy picks. Young Daniel James has been in good form and should be your pick. Mason Greenwood is also likely to make his first Premier League start and can be a wild card. Keep a close eye on Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who keeps impressing in the back four.

Arsenal Preview

The Gunners made light work of Nottingham Forest in the League Cup fixture. They are in cracking scoring form, scoring multiple goals in each of their last five competitive games. As such, having their top players in your side makes sense.

Striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been in great form and should walk into your side. Dani Ceballos has been their midfield architect and another good pick. If you are looking for a dark horse, look no further than Nicolas Pepe who can be a goal scorer.

Fantasy Players to Watch

Daniel James has been United’s brightest spark this Premier League season. He already has three goals to his name and has shown great energy on the field.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is Arsenal’s top-scorer with six Premier League goals. Furthermore, he has five goals in his last four competitive matches.

Nicolas Pepe is making up for a slow start to his Arsenal career with a goal and two assists in his last four competitive matches. He can be the surprise package of this trip for the Gunners.
