Arsenal aim to keep their distance at the top of the English Premier League table on Sunday, but they face the only team to beat them so far when Manchester United visit London. The Gunners (15-2-1) saw their lead at the top of the table cut to five points when Manchester City rallied to beat Tottenham on Thursday. Man Utd (12-3-4) are in fourth place, eight points back. United followed a huge 2-1 win against City in last weekend's Manchester derby by playing to a 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace on Wednesday. The Gunners beat Spurs 2-0 last Sunday and have been resting for this chance to avenge their 3-1 loss to the Red Devils back in September at Old Trafford.

Kickoff is set for 11:30 a.m. ET in London. Caesars Sportsbook lists the Gunners as -119 favorites (risk $119 to win $100) in its latest Arsenal vs. Manchester United odds. United are +310 underdogs, a draw is priced at +265 and the over/under for total match goals is 2.5.

Why you should back Arsenal

The Gunners have not conceded a goal in their three matches in the new year, and they have been one of the league's best on both ends all season. They have allowed 14 league goals, second to Newcastle, who ended the Gunners' 10-game home winning streak with a 0-0 draw on Jan. 3. Arsenal are 7-1-0 with a plus-14 goal differential at the Emirates this season, and the faithful will be fired up for this showdown. United are just 5-2-3 with a minus-4 goal differential away from home. Arsenal are 4-2-2 in the past eight meetings with Man U, with both losses coming at Old Trafford.

The loss of Gabriel Jesus, once expected to derail the team's title hopes, actually seems to have galvanized Mikel Arteta's young squad. They are 10-2-0 since the loss to Man U, and Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard are stepping up in a big way. They are tied for fourth in the league in combined goals and assists. Odegaard has eight goals and five assists, while Saka has scored six and set up seven.

Why you should back Manchester United 

The Red Devils have been playing with supreme confidence and will be eager to get back on a winning streak. They also know this match could determine if they are in the running for the league title. They had the better chances against Palace on Wednesday and controlled the game but allowed the equalizer on a 91st-minute free kick. Marcus Rashford failed to score for the first time in nine matches in all competitions. He scored twice in the victory against Arsenal in September, and he is playing at a higher level now. Rashford has eight league goals, four in the past five matches.   

Bruno Fernandes curled home a feed from Christian Eriksen to give the Red Devils the lead Wednesday, and both are critical to the attack. Fernandes has four goals and three assists, while Eriksen has seven assists. Fernandes is third in the EPL in both key passes (49) and shot-creating actions (88). United are putting 36.5 percent of their shots on target, and Arsenal are one of the league's worst teams in averting shots and passes. The Gunners are last in blocks (168) and 19th in interceptions (121). Man U goalkeeper David de Gea is third in the league with eight clean sheets.
