Sunday’s Premier League action concludes at Old Trafford where Manchester United take on Arsenal.

The hosts go in to the game in second place two points clear of Liverpool, after the Merseyside outfit only managed a goalless draw against relegation threatened Stoke City on Saturday afternoon.

Victory here would see them secure a top four finish while even after this game they have one in hand over their North West rivals, who are also having to contend with the Champions League.

Jose Mourinho’s men have won six of their last seven league games while they go into this fixture on the back of booking their place in the FA Cup final after beating Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley last time out.

Antonio Valencia is available after shaking off a muscle problem which he sustained last time out though Sergio Romero remains out with a knee injury.

Romelu Lukaku is favourite to open the scoring at 4.4 (17/5) with Unibet with former Gunner Alexis Sanchez a 5.5 (9/2) chance with most firms.

The home win is 1.45 (5/11) with Unibet with the visitors as highly priced as the 8.0 (7/1) on offer from Betfair. The draw can be backed at 5.0 (4/1) with Betfair.

Arsene Wenger’s men thumped West Ham United last time out in the league to keep alive their extremely feint hopes of a top four finish before drawing 1-1 in the first leg of the Europa League semi-final against Atletico Madrid on Thursday.

Wenger – who faces his old rival for the final time as Arsenal boss is set to make several changes with next Thursday’s return leg in mind with Henrikh Mkhitaryan available to face his former club after recovering from a knee injury though Mohamed Elneny remains out.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is 8.0 (7/1) to get the first goal of the game with Unibet ahead of 10.0 (9/1) shot Alexandre Lacazette.

United eased to a 3-1 win when the sides met at the Emirates Stadium back in December while last season’s corresponding fixture ended in a 1-1 draw.

You make be tempted to back both teams to score this time around at 1.85 (17/20) with Betfair who offer 1.22 (2/9) for there to be at least two goals in the game.
