Matchday Five Preview: PSV can get revenge on Arsenal

PSV Eindhoven will be looking for sweet revenge against Arsenal when the two sides meet in one of Thursday night’s showdowns in the Europa League.

The Gunners emerged victorious in their previous meeting in north London but PSV will fancy their chances of inflicting a rare defeat on the Gunners at Philips Stadion. 

Gunners' perfect start at risk

OddsPSV 9/5, Draw 11/4, Arsenal 13/10

It has been a perfect start to the Europa League campaign for Mikel Arteta’s Arenal, with the north London outfit winning all of their four games so far. The Gunners managed to come through their encounters home and away against Bodo/Glimt with wins, before edging out a talented PSV side 1-0 at the Emirates. 

PSV were unable to get their normally impressive attacking game going in north London but they should be able to rekindle their scoring form in the home comforts of the Philips Stadion. The Dutch giants have only suffered one defeat at home in all competitions this season, while they are currently on a four-game winning streak at the Philips Stadion. 

In that four-game spell, Ruud van Nistelrooy’s side have found the back of the net an impressive 16 times. With their recent home form in mind, PSV look well priced at 9/5 to claim all three points against the Premier League frontrunners, who were held to a 1-1 stalemate against Southampton at the weekend.

OddsMan Utd 1/11, Draw 17/2, Sheriff Tiraspol 28/1

Manchester United still have work to do if they are to finish top of the pile in Group E, with Real Sociedad still three points ahead with two games to go. United can't afford any mistakes against Sheriff Tiraspol on Thursday night at Old Trafford and the hosts should be confident of a positive result. 

The Red Devils earned a 2-0 win at Tiraspol when these sides met in Moldova, with Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo getting on the scoresheet. After refusing to come on as a late substitute against Tottenham, Ronaldo was made unavailable for the 1-1 stalemate with Chelsea last time out. United manager Erik ten Hag has confirmed he has spoken with the Portuguese star who is back and available for selection for Thursday night. 

Now on a five-game unbeaten run in all competitions, United are starting to find some positive form ahead of the World Cup break this winter. United should have little problem getting past Sheriff once again, with the hosts at 10/11 to come out on top with a -2 goal handicap.

Expect a response from Sociedad

OddsOmonia Nicosia 11/2, Draw 16/5, Real Sociedad 1/2

After seeing a tremendous eight-game winning run in all competitions come to an end at the weekend against Real Valladolid, expect a response from Real Sociedad on Thursday at Omonia Nicosia. Sociedad had been in superb form under boss Imanol Alguacil until that loss at Valladolid on Saturday. 

The side seem to be coping without their former star striker Alexander Isak, following the Sweden international's high-profile switch to Newcastle United. With four wins from four, it has been the perfect start for Sociedad in the Europa League and a win at rock-bottom Nicosia will be enough to secure top spot in the group if United fail to beat Sheriff. 

Omonia are in the midst of a tough spell with eight defeats in their last 10 games in all competitions. Currently on a five-game losing streak, it's hard to see the hosts preventing Sociedad from continuing their perfect start to their Europa League campaign. 

Sociedad will look to put this result to be early and the visitors to be leading at half-time and full-time is available at 13/10.
