Premier League heavyweights Arsenal and Manchester United face each other at the Emirates Stadium, London, on January 22. The match will start at 10:00 PM IST.
Unlike most of their fixtures in recent years, both Arsenal and Manchester United are heading into this match as title contenders, with the north London club five points clear of second-placed Manchester City. Manchester United are eight points adrift as well of Arsenal having played one game more.
The Gunners have won 15 of their 18 matches and are coming into this fixture on the back of a 2-0 win against local rivals Tottenham.
The Red Devils were handed a late heartbreak against Crystal Palace in their mid-week fixture. A 91st minute equaliser from Michael Olise via a brilliant free-kick deprived United of a much-needed win. Erik Ten Hag’s side could’ve lost that point as well, if not for Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s terrific tackle on Wilfred Zaha in the dying seconds of the match.
ARS vs MUN Dream11 Prediction for Premier League 2022-23
Arsenal’s only defeat in the Premier League came against Manchester United in the reverse fixture, but Arteta’s troops have been on the surge. They have dropped points just once at the Emirates, when Newcastle United picked up a draw but are yet to lose a match at home in the league this season.
The hosts will be the favourites to win this fixture but United will not give away the points that easily.

Ben White has flourished in his new role as a right-back this season and is constantly found high up on the right-hand side of the field. He has picked up 615 fantasy points so far, courtesy of the clean sheets Arsenal have been maintaining regularly this season. He can also be an attacking threat and loves to bomb forward, making him a good choice for your fantasy team.
