Dimitar Berbatov backs Man United to edge out Arsenal at Old Trafford

Dimitar Berbatov has urged his former club Manchester United to seal a tight win over Arsenal at Old Trafford.

Man United will welcome the Gunners on Sunday in the Premier League and will only look at extending their unbeaten run.

The Red Devils have gone unbeaten in their last four matches across all competitions and will look to build from their recent 5-0 smashing over RB Leipzig in the Champions League.

Arsenal are yet to rediscover their Premier League form after losing two matches in a row, though the north London club will hope their 3-0 win over Dundalk on Thursday would give them the substantial boost to face United.

Dimitar Berbatov doesn’t see Arsenal taking the day at Old Trafford but understands the clash will be a tight victory for Man United.

Speaking to Betfair, Berbatov said: “It’s crazy to see these two teams play when they are both so low in the table!

“United’s confidence will be high, but often you have a brilliant result followed by a horror show.

“I want to see United kick on up the table, and I think they can edge out Arsenal here. 2-1.”

‘I want to believe we’re getting closer to getting the win there,’ Arteta said.

‘For sure our mindset is going to be to go there and win. That’s the approach we’re going to have and the gameplay we’re going to put in place.’
