Understandably United are the heavy favourites at 2/9 and with Mourinho confirming they have virtually a full-fit squad to choose from, it’s hard to see past an in-form United side picking up all three points on Monday. However, we can get you enhanced odds of 4/1 on an Arsenal win which should be very tempting.
