While the title race looks set to go down to the wire, the battle for third and fourth in the Premier League is equally exciting with Manchester United’s stunning revival under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer upsetting the apple cart.
Ole’s impressive spell in charge reached new heights on Wednesday when United beat PSG 3-1 away to reach the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
After One of the most stunning victories in their fabled European history, fourth-placed United now travel to fifth-placed Arsenal (Sunday 6.30pm).
United have won every away game since Solskjaer took charge in December and if they continue that record on Sunday, they would move four points above Arsenal.
One of Solskjaer’s best wins in his tenure thus far came at the Emirates earlier this year when his side defeated Arsenal 3-1 in an FA Cup clash.
Repeating the feat will be no easy task, especially with the Red Devils’ spate of injuries.
Ole cautioned his players that they must remain level-headed ahead of the Arsenal clash.
“We’ve got the biggest game for us. We need to be among the top four when the season finishes. We’ve been down there earlier on in the FA Cup so we know how hard it’s going to be.”
Unai Emery’s side will have to improve results against top-six opponents if they are to leapfrog United.
The Gunners have the worst recent record in such games, winning just five of 29 outings since August 2016.
Arsenal are now unbeaten in 14 Premier League games at the Emirates, and have won their last eight in a row.
However, they are up against a United side that are yet to drop a point on the road under Solskjaer.
