'I think': Jamie Carragher predicts who's going to finish higher this season - Arsenal or Manchester United

Jamie Carragher has made his prediction about who will finish higher between Arsenal and Manchester United after their weekend clash.

Speaking on the Overlap after the game, Carragher said that Arsenal are the better team right now because they are further with their evolution.

And he said despite the fact United ran out 3-1 winners at Old Trafford, that it will be the Gunners who finish the season higher.

They are currently top of the Premier League still, with United fifth as they continue their recovery from an awful start to the season.

Carragher makes Arsenal and United prediction

Carragher said: “I think Arsenal will finish above Man United. Arsenal are a better team than Manchester United right now.

“Arteta’s three years in, Ten Hag is just starting and he’s gone a little bit more pragmatic because he can’t play the way an Arsenal team is now.

“I think in two or three years time, the way Arsenal performed on Sunday that’s the way United will play, playing from the back all the time, playing through the lines.

“I admire what Ten Hag has done. So right now, I think Arsenal have the edge but squad-wise, that’ll be Arsenal’s big problem – if they get injuries to certain players.”

It is hard to make sweeping judgements so early in the season but there is no doubt that Arsenal did play well at Old Trafford on Sunday.

They made a lot of the running and could well have got at least a draw from the game on another day, and felt hard done by when Gabriel Martinelli’s goal was disallowed at 0-0.

Now, it is all about how they recover with the Europa League kicking back in and games coming thick and fast, and of course United are playing in the same competition.
