For Manchester United, a rise to the 4th position will depend a lot on Sunday’s clash between Arsenal and Manchester City. Louis Van Gaal admitted he will be supporting and hoping for an Arsenal win as this will help in maintaining the difference to a single point.
“I’m more or less tomorrow, indeed, a Gunners fan but it will be tough game between these kinds of teams,” said Van Gaal. He pointed that it won’t be easy for Manchester City to revive themselves after being knocked-out of the Champions League by Real Madrid.
The Red Devils currently sit 1 point behind Manchester City. A defeat to Arsenal would leave Manchester City in a serious danger of missing out on the Champions League spot. For Arsenal, it will be a golden opportunity for sealing a top-four finish, as well as leaving Manchester United’s faith in their own hands. Next up, the Red Devils play away at West Ham United, who currently sit 4 points behind Manchester United in 6th position.
