United v Arsenal Preview: Podolski to lead the charge

Arsenal face a tough trip to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United, and are 5 shots with bet365 and Paddy Power to come away with all three points.
The stats are certainly not good as far as the Gunners are concerned, as United have won seven and lost none of the last eight matches against them on their own patch and famously inflicted a 8-2 defeat in the corresponding fixture last season.
The last time they won at Old Trafford was back in the 2006/07 season, when they secured a 1-0 success.
It will also be the first time that the two sides have met since Robin van Persie left the Gunners to join the Red Devils, and keeping him at bay will be the key to success as far as Arsene Wenger’s men are concerned.
The good thing for Arsenal is that their defence has been solid and let in an average of less than 1 goal a game this season.
The bad news is that they are not converting as often as they should at the other end of the pitch, and their finishing will have to be far more clinical if they are to secure victory.
Gervihno is the leading goalscorer in the league with 3 to his name and is priced up at a 11 with Boylesports to score the opener.
However my money is going to be on Lukas Podolski to bag the opener at 12 with Paddy Power, as that price is simply too big for a striker of his quality.
The German is also priced up at 4.33 with Paddy Power to score anytime, and that also looks good value.
One other potentially interesting bet is for there to be under 2.5 goals in the game at the 2.6 on offer with bet365 as prior to last season’s result this fixture had proved to be a hard fought affair with just 11 goals scored between the two sides in 8 seasons.

    We have to start with walcott, podolski, cazorla and wilshere. RVP should worry why he left Arsenal for the Divers United

    Podolski should be seen as a long term asset and be given the in charge on the field. Lots expected from him.
