Battle of the titans! No points for guessing who I'm going for here.. United, obviously! Everything points towards an Arsenal demise - their depleted strikeforce (Van Persie banned, Adebayor injured), injury problems (Eboue out, Walcott/Gallas doubtful, Silvestre broken nose), and bad form (conceded 2 late goals to draw 4-4 with arch-rivals Spurs, loss against Stoke, goalless draw at home to Fenerbahce). Do I need to justify my case any more? United might be the heavy boat on this one but I really don't see Arsenal getting anything out of this match.
Roland's prediction: $5 on Man United -0/0.5 @ 1.960 = $9.80
it all seems to point to a manu win doesn't it? injury news, current form, confidence, past results...etc. everything would point you to a man utd win, if logic is used. however, we've all been here before, if you fancy a punt every weekend on your football matches. walcott, gallas and silvestre are "doubtful". now, "doubtful" is a word often used to mislead people into thinking they won't play, to encourage a flurry of betting for the other team, leading to a heavy boat. and you know what often happens to heavy boats. yup, they sink. in this case, however, it really looks like man utd are strong favourites for this one, but considering the fact that arsenal are at home, and have not won in like 3 matches, i think they will dig deep and at least hold out for a draw.
