Arsenal vs. Manchester United: Premier League – Match Preview

Arsenal and Manchester United both need a result when they meet on Sunday as the battle for the top four intensifies.

The Gunners were beaten away at Tottenham last weekend, ensuring they can’t finish above their rivals for the first time since 1995.

Second half goals from Dele Alli and Harry Kane secured a comfortable win for Spurs.

Manchester United were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Swansea, with Gylfi Sigurdsson’s free-kick earning the Welsh side a point.

They are well placed in their Europa League semi-final though, having won 1-0 away to Celta Vigo in the first leg.
