Wenger eyeing perfect send-off with a win over Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United

Arsenal travel to Old Trafford this weekend and the Gunners will be looking to provide the perfect send-off for Wenger with a win over Jose Mourinho’s side.

This is possibly the last time the two rivals will face each other and Wenger will be hoping for the last laugh. In terms of head to head, Mourinho has a very good record against the Frenchman but that is unlikely to affect the outcome of this game.

Manchester United will be desperate to secure their place in the top four with a win here and this is a great opportunity for Mourinho to add to his phenomenal record against the Arsenal boss.

Mourinho has only lost two of his 18 meetings with Wenger.

Arsenal have been very good in the recent weeks and this won’t be an easy outing for the home side. The Gunners have won four of their last 5 matches in the Premier League and they are 13/2 to win with Toals.

Meanwhile, Manchester United have lost just twice at home in the league all season and they will fancy their chances here. Arsenal haven’t been at their best on the road and Mourinho will be hoping to make the most of that.

Arsenal have only won three of 16 Premier League away matches this season.

It will be interesting to see whether Arsene Wenger decides to rotate his side for this game. Arsenal are in the semi finals of the Europa League and it is Wenger’s only chance of winning a trophy in his final season.

The Gunners were held to a 1-1 draw against Atletico Madrid in the first leg and they have a massive challenge ahead of them next week. Wenger could decide to rest his key players keeping an eye on the second leg.

In that case, Manchester United will be firm favourites to get a result here.

Former Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez has had a poor start to life at Old Trafford and he will be hoping to make his mark in this game. The Chilean is 6/5 to score anytime with Toals.

Manchester United are without Sergio Romero for this one and Arsenal will be without the likes of Elneny, Cazorla and Mkhitaryan.

This should be a close contest between two fierce rivals determined to get one over the other.
