Odds (as of May 5, 2024):

  • Manchester United Win: +220 (or 2.20 in decimal odds) – United’s home advantage and potential for a turnaround make them underdogs with a chance.
  • Draw: +300 (or 3.00) – A tight encounter with both teams cancelling each other out is a possibility.
  • Arsenal Win: -140 (or 1.40) – Arsenal are clear favorites based on their superior form and title aspirations.

  • Both Teams to Score (Yes): -110 (or 1.10) – Given both teams’ attacking options, goals are likely at both ends.

Head-to-Head (H2H):

  • Last Season (2022/23 – assuming this is the relevant season):

      • Results (wins, draws, losses)
      • Goals scored and conceded
      • Performance at each team’s home stadium
  • Overall (last 10 meetings – if data is available):
    • Analyze past encounters for historical trends. However, recent form often carries more weight, with Manchester United’s inconsistency and Arsenal’s title fight being crucial factors.
