Manchester United take on Arsenal at the Emirates on Saturday afternoon. With the top-four race coming down the final stretch, Mikel Arteta's side have a great chance to seriously hamper Manchester United's chances of competing for a Champions League place ahead of next season. A win will also give the north London side breathing space in the top four race.
There will be an extra incentive for Arsenal to get the win, after disappointingly losing the reverse fixture 3-2 this season. It was a match that was for the taking, but the Gunners failed to capitalise.
A win for Arsenal against Manchester United on Saturday afternoon will take Arteta's team six points ahead of Ralf Rangnick's side, with still an extra game in hand to play. It would also propel the Gunners into fourth spot before Tottenham play later in the day.
United confirmed the appointment of Erik ten Hag on Thursday and it will be the first game the Reds have played in the Premier League following that news. Ten Hag joins United on a three-year contract with the option of an additional year.
It seems highly likely Ten Hag won't be managing United in the Champions League next season. United have endured a miserable campaign and they sit three points behind fourth-placed Tottenham, while the London club also have one game in hand.
Arsenal starting XI:
Ramsdale; Cedric, White, Gabriel, Tavares; Elneny, Xhaka, Odegaard; Saka, Nketiah, Smith Rowe.
Manchester United Lineup:
De Gea, Dalot, Lindelof, Varane, Alex Telles, McTominay, Matic, Elanga, Bruno Fernandes, Sancho, Ronaldo
