Marcus Rashford 7/5 to score anytime against Arsenal in Sunday’s Premier League showdown

Competition: Premier League

Market: Marcus Rashford to score anytime

Odds: 7/5 @ 888sport

Looking to extend on their recent resurge, Manchester United will welcome former rivals Arsenal to Old Trafford On Sunday evening.

Starting with the hosts, while there might have been a string of questions surrounding Manchester United after a worrying start to the New Year, the Reds have bounced back in some style. Putting on what was a European romp at Old Trafford on Wednesday night, the former champions put five past RB Leipzig and are unbeaten in all four of their outings since returning from October’s international break. In an even bigger boost for the former champions, they have one leading marksman who put in his own stunning performance in midweek. Bagging hit first professional hat-trick in the space of just 16 minutes after coming off the bench, England international Marcus Rashford has already racked up eight goals for club and country so far this season and will lead United’s charge this weekend.

As for the visitors, although Arsenal might have managed to pick up what was an expected 3-0 victory against Irish outfit Dundalk on Europa League duties earlier in the week, the Gunners are in the midst of a Premier League blip. Hit with a late 1-0 defeat at home against Leicester last weekend, Mikel Arteta’s men have managed to collect just three points from their last four top-flight contests and they have continued to show a string of issues on the road. Likely to be in for a tough test when they travel to their former rivals on Sunday, it should also be noted that Arsenal hold what is a woeful record in the red half of Manchester. Remarkably, Sunday’s guests have failed to win a Premier League matchup at Old Trafford since 2006.
