Arsenal keen to keep pressure on Manchester City with Manchester United spanking

As the season draws nearer and nearer to the end, Arsenal seek to snatch the trophy away from City as they prepare to face United on Sunday.

Arsenal and Manchester United prepare to face off at the Theatre of Dreams on Sunday 12th May for the super Sunday Premier League fixture. This will be a very intense match as it will decide the fate for these two Premier League giants.

The Gunners need these three crucial points to keep their title hopes intact. On the other hand, United are hoping to win this game to increase their hopes for European football next season.

Arsenal who sit currently at the top of the table will be aiming to continue their winning streak in the fight to keep Man City away from a record fourth title in a row. They head into this fixture with a strong home win against Bournemouth.

Bukayo Saka’s tireless contribution inspired this win. Arsenal will surely need his quick feet and trickery to defeat united again.

United were brutally defeated by Crystal palace at Selhurst Park on Monday. Michael Olise scored twice in this four goal thriller to see united remain 8th on the table, below Chelsea who have recently found form.

United have now conceded 81 goals, the worst ever in their history. They must work really hard jam the Gunners, who have proven to be a free scoring team.

This will be a very testing task for United as they will play without their main centre back Harry Maguire after he was ruled out for three weeks after picking up a new muscle injury during training. Casemiro has since filled up for him but following his display against palace, United’s defence seems to be very porous.

Bruno Fernandes has been United’s only hope this season. He recently picked up an injury before the Palace game, but United boss Erik ten Hag has faith in his star midfielder that he will be available for the game.

With a very long list of injuries, all the odds are against united this weekend as they face a very determined and passionate North London side who have vowed to win the title this season.

United still have a very important match to play as they will prepare to face rivals Manchester City for the FA Cup final later this month.

Arsenal will be hoping that City drop points on Saturday to tighten their grip on the trophy as they will have only have one game remaining, at home to Everton.
