It’s no longer news that Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas has tipped his former club Arsenal to pick maximum three points at Old Trafford as he predicted a 2-1 scoreline in favor of the Gunners.
The former Arsenal striker attached his prediction to United’s injury woes and the club’s lack of strong firepower at the final half of the pitch.

With Greenwood’s current goal-scoring form, the home team have a huge chance of defeating the North London club after 90 minutes of action.
