No fond farewell for Wenger

Arsene Wenger makes final trip to Old Trafford as Arsenal boss on Sunday, but it isn’t likely to be a happy visit.

The Gunners boss experienced the elation of a title win at the home of one of Arsenal’s fiercest rivals over the duration of his tenure but their recent form on the road is not encouraging.

Allied to that, Wenger is likely to make significant changes in personnel with this Premier League clash sandwiched between their Europa League semi-final tussle with Atletico Madrid.

Arsenal have only won three of 16 Premier League away matches this season and that is not the sort of form that will encourage anyone to back them at 27/4 on Sunday.

Wenger has also managed to win only two of his 18 games against Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho in their careers to date.

That losing feeling is likely to be experienced by Wenger once again, with United the more rested team and Arsenal coming in after a hard test against Atletico on Thursday where they were hit with a late sucker punch. Morale will have taken a dent after Antoine Griezmann’s late and potentially vital goal.

The Red Devils are unbeaten in their last 10 against Arsenal at Old Trafford, while they won the reverse fixture 3-1 and they are tipped to win this one at 5/12.

Before that West Ham get a chance to almost cement their Premier League status for another season when they face champions Man City. David Moyes’ men aren’t mathematically safe from relegation just yet, and they now sit only three points above the bottom three with four games to play following Southampton’s win over Bournemouth.

Man City have won their last two visits to West Ham and have failed to win just one of their league visits to the capital this season.

Pep Guardiola didn’t allow his team to let up last time out as they hammered five past Swansea. The pressure if off and that could mean trouble for the Hammers as City can show their full array of skills. The visitors can take all three points at odds of 5/13 from the London Stadium.
