By Grace Hannington 26th, April 2013
Arsenal and Man United have dropped the joint-fewest points from winning positions in the Barclays Premier League this season .Manchester United have won six and lost one of the last seven Premier League meetings with Arsenal. The Gunners have kept just four clean sheets in their last 16 Premier League games at Emirates Stadium. Robin Van Persie has scored in each of his last three appearances where Arsenal has played against Man United, twice for the Gunners and last time out for the Red Devils.
Rooney scored his first Premier League goal, his first in the PL for Man United and his 100th Premier League goal against Arsenal. Rooney’s 10 goal haul is the highest by a Premier League player against the Gunners (along with Robbie Fowler) and also his joint-highest versus any opponent in the history of the competition. Only Arsenal has scored more goals in the final 15 minutes of matches than Manchester United.
Despite having the best away defence (14 goals conceded), 12 teams have a better home defensive record than the 21 goals shipped by the Gunners at Emirates Stadium. Man United are the first team to be champions with four games remaining since Arsenal in 2003-04.Robin van Persie has scored 17 goals in his last 17 Premier League appearances at the Emirates. Arsenal have taken only four points from seven games against the other sides in the top five this season, every other member has at least 10. After this analysis, now get ready to bet wisely.
