Manchester City will look to strengthen their position at the top with Manchester United facing old rivals Arsenal.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta

Arsenal will look to continue their positive form against Manchester United when the two sides meet in the Premier League on Saturday.

Having already secured a 1-0 win over United at Old Trafford this season, the Gunners will be determined to secure a double over Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

Arteta Can Make History

A victory for the Gunners at the Emirates would see Mikel Arteta become the first Arsenal manager to win his first three league matches against the Red Devils.

The Gunners are undefeated in their last four meetings with United, winning three of those and drawing the other.

United have found it hard in the final third against the north London outfit, as they have failed to find the back of the net in three of the last four matches.

While the Gunners have had their struggles this season, they turned a corner on Boxing Day with a 3-1 win over Chelsea and have not looked back since.

Undefeated in their last six games, with five wins and a draw, the Gunners will be full of confidence ahead of the arrival of a United side that suffered a 2-1 defeat to Sheffield United in midweek.

Considering their record against United, the Gunners are at an attractive price of 19/10 to claim the three points in north London.

City Set to Shut Out Blades

Manchester City’s defence has been key to their rise to the top of the Premier League standings, and they get another chance to impress on Saturday against Sheffield United.

Manchester City defensive pair John Stones and Ruben Dias

With just 13 goals conceded in 19 league outings so far, City have the meanest defence in the league with John Stones and Ruben Dias having formed a strong partnership, and they face a Blades side that have scored the fewest goals in the competition.

Chris Wilder’s side have found the back of the net just 12 times in 20 outings this term, while the South Yorkshire outfit have failed to score in any of their last three meetings with City.

The Citizens to win to nil is 4/7, while there is 6/5 on offer for there to be over 3.5 goals in the match.

Saints Can Extend Impressive Run

Southampton will hope to extend their winning run against Aston Villa when the West Midlands side makes the trip to St Mary’s.

The Saints have won all of their last four meetings with Villa, while the south coast outfit are unbeaten in their last nine encounters with Saturday’s opponents.

Both teams are looking to bounce back from midweek defeats, with Saints losing to Arsenal and Burnley getting the better of the Villans.

With home advantage and a strong record behind them, Southampton should get back to winning ways and are 41/20 to claim the three points this weekend.

Matches between these sides have tended to be high-scoring affairs in the past, with over 3.5 goals having been scored in three of the last four meetings.

Over 3.5 goals in Saturday’s mid-table clash is available at 6/4.
