Back both goals when Arsenal visit Old Trafford
Using expected goals (xG) data, Infogol's analyst picks out the best bets for Sunday's Premier League action.
Man Utd v Arsenal
Live on Sky Sports Main Event & Sky Sports Premier League
Sunday's game at Old Trafford, which pits second against fourth, also sees Alexis Sánchez line up against his old team Arsenal, however the Chilean forward is yet to impress all fans of his new club.
He scored seven goals for Arsenal (one every 160 minutes) before his January move, but has only notched twice in the Premier League for Man Utd (one goal every 164 minutes). He has, however, contributed three assists in his 819 minutes on the pitch for the Red Devils, the same amount as he managed in twice as long for Arsenal.
While a lot of the focus will be on Sanchez, the key moments may fall to Romelu Lukaku (16 Premier League goals, 15.07 xG) and Jesse Lingard (eight Premier League goals, 6.91 xG), while the likes of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial remain potent dangers, though both will likely start on the bench.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan went the other way as part of the Sanchez deal, and he has impressed in the main at Arsenal, already notching four assists (only one less than at United) in half the time on the pitch. He isn't the only goalmaker for the Gunners, though, with Mesut Özil (8) and Aaron Ramsey (7) responsible for setting up a large chunk of their Premier League goals this season, much to the delight of leading scorer Alexandre Lacazette.
The Infogol model forecasts that both sides – which are full of quality attacking players – will get on the score sheet, as they have in the last four meetings, so back it to happen at 9/10.
