Andrew Hughes is backing Manchester United to beat Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday in another weekend cross-sport multiple

“And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team are the Premier League’s in-form side right now, with an attacking fluency and a team spirit that was entirely absent under Jose Mourinho.”

Bet 1: Back Manchester United to beat Arsenal at [3.0]

Ten league wins in twelve games have enabled a resurgent Manchester United to break into the top four and they can earn some breathing space in the race for Champions League qualification with victory over Arsenal on Sunday.

Under Unai Emery, the Gunners have a solid home record of eight consecutive wins, but as Kevin Hatchard points out, they have been vulnerable against top-four opponents, losing to Manchester City, Liverpool and to United in the FA Cup.

And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team are the Premier League's in-form side right now, with an attacking fluency and a team spirit that was entirely absent under Jose Mourinho. After Wednesday's heroics in Paris, the United players should feel invincible and they look a good bet to earn another important win.

Bet 2: Back Australia to beat India at [2.75]

Australia pulled off a surprise win in their Third One Day International on Friday and at their current odds, look undervalued in the betting for Sunday's game.

The tourists' batting hasn't always held up and as Ed Hawkins argues, they should have scored more than 315 given their strong start in Game Three. But there are no worries about their bowling, with six solid seam options and a strong spin duo in Nathan Lyon and Adam Zampa to back them up.

India have a depth of batting resources to call upon, but they appear to be using this series to audition fringe players ahead of the summer's World Cup and their line-up has a top-heavy feel to it. If Australia's quicks can pick up a couple of early wickets, the game should tilt in their favour and I'm backing them to level the series.

Bet 3: Back Harlequins to beat Gloucester at [1.72]

Third takes on fourth in the Premiership on Sunday and this should be a fascinating game between two teams battling to secure a play-off spot.
With Sale just two points behind in fifth, Gloucester will be desperate for a win at The Stoop, but their away form doesn't instil confidence. The Cherry and Whites haven't won on the road since a victory against Newcastle on December 23, and they haven't beaten these opponents on their home patch since 2006.

By contrast, Harlequins are in a rich vein of form, having won their last five in the Premiership, and they haven't lost at home since the visit of Saracens back in October. They look a solid bet to make it six in a row this weekend.
