ARS vs MUN Dream11 Match Prediction: Arsenal has been going through a tough time in the league this season as they find themselves 12th on the table with just 24 points. However, the Gunner will be expected to bring forward their absolute best as they host rivals Manchester United at the Emirates on New Years Day. Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal unit did play well against Chelsea for the majority of the game but faltered in the final 10 minutes by conceding two late goals.
Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United side has responded with two comprehensive wins versus Newcastle and Burnley, after a disappointing defeat to Watford. Both sides will be looking to kick off 2020 with a big win in order to set the tone for the second half of the season.
