<1.68> <3.25> <4.45>

arsenal started so well this season, which makes it disappointing for the fans, as we have nothing much left to play for here. even a win at old trafford would still mean we have to play catch-up against two teams, and if anything, it will give chelsea the boost needed for them to push on to win their third title in four years. however, the circumstances surrounding this match are very similar to arsenal's visit to old trafford last season. 1) arsenal HAVE to win to stay in the race. 2) noone really gives arsenal a chance at coming back from old trafford with all 3 points. as such, i do have a feeling that arsenal can come away from old trafford with all 3 points, with walcott possibly playing a big role in this one.

- Eddy's prediction: $5 on arsenal @ 4.45 = $22.50

I'm going for an outright United win. Reasons?
1) I am a fan of United
2) Rooney and Ronaldo and Evra and Scholes were fully rested for this match.
3) Arsenal have Flamini and Sagna (both bright sparks of their season) out injured
4) Cesc has looked leggy in the last few matches
5) United need to win to keep themselves ahead of Chelsea, who have 2 games this week (assuming Chelsea win both), and if they do so they'll have a game in hand too.
6) It's at Old Trafford, the Theatre of Dreams. 4-0.

- Roland's prediction: $5 on United @ 1.68 = $8.40
