Arsenal and Manchester United meet on Saturday early Premier League kick-off in what could be a defining game for the last Champions League spot in the English top flight.

Gunners will look to make it back-to-back wins in the Premier League after reignited their Champions League bid with an enthralling 4-2 success at Chelsea in midweek, lifting Mikel Arteta’s side level on points with Tottenham in the fourth position.

Manchester United, however, were beaten heavily by a rampant Liverpool at Anfield, although Ralf Rangnick’s side still hovers only three points outside of the top four despite their inconsistent form.
