The race for a top-four finish in the Premier League could take a new dimension on Sunday evening when Arsenal entertain Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday evening.
Arsenal can’t afford to end the game on the losing side with the Gunners one-point adrift of fourth-placed Manchester United in the race to qualify for the Champions League next season via a top-four finish in the Premier League.
The Gunners will be hoping to bounce back from the Rennes game on Thursday.
Their six-match unbeaten run came to an end in France after a 3-1 defeat in what was the first leg of their Europa League last 16 tie.
Arsenal have been backed with the odds of 2.20 by Bet365 for a win over long-term nemesis Manchester United in their quest to bounce back from the result against Rennes.
The Gunners have won two of their last three league games against Manchester United though it must be pointed out that they lost 3-1 to the same opposition in the FA Cup fourth round in January.
Manchester United are coming into the Arsenal game on the back of a remarkable turnaround in their last 16 tie with French giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG) in the Champions League.
They have the odds of 3.10 for a win while a more likely outcome of a draw is at the odds of 3.50 according to Bet365.
