Football journalist Arthur Petrosyan gave a forecast for the match of the 21st round of the Premier League season 2020/21 Arsenal – Manchester United. The game will take place on January 30, beginning at 20:30 Moscow time.
“Apart from the defeat in the Cup match against Southampton, which Arteta surprisingly decided to sacrifice, the Gunners have been doing pretty well lately. Five victories in the last six rounds with the Londoners, and in the last they beat the same Southampton 3: 1, playing without Aubameyang. The team looked brisk and easy, moved well, created a lot. In general, I made more than a pleasant impression, ”notes Artur Petrosyan.
Manchester United disappointed with Sheffield United. The Mancunians not only lost at Old Trafford to the last team in the standings, but at the same time looked rather mediocre – lack of initiative, chaotic and somewhat lazy. Perhaps it was a matter of mood or the players overestimated their strengths after winning the Cup over Liverpool, continues Arthur Petrosyan. – I think the game should turn out to be quite interesting. The hosts will hold the ball more, the guests will counterattack. Most likely, those others will succeed in the final stages of attacks, and the Gunners will be closer to victory.
In the Premier League standings, Manchester United are in second place with 40 points after 20 matches, Arsenal are in ninth position with 30 points also after 20 games. The leader of the tournament is ManCity – 41 points in 19 games.
