A lot has changed for both Arsenal and Manchester United in the last month or so and it has been very different for each of us. And it has all seen such a swing of fortune that the end of today could see the Gunners finish a massive 10 points ahead of one of the teams thought to be Premier League title contenders.
While Man United finished the month of November in a great position and in good spirits after winning three of their league games and drawing the other away to current pace setters Leicester City, Arsenal’s November was nothing short of a nightmare.
Since then, however, Arsenal have rescued a seemingly impossible Champions League campaign and won all three of our league games including the crucial clash with Man City. But United’s loss away to Stoke City today makes it four defeats in a row and they have not won in five weeks.
Even before this poor run, their performances were pretty bad but while they were picking up points it was always possible that their performances would get better. INstead it has gone the other way, with their results going the way of their play, so if Arsenal manage another win at Southampton tonight, can we safely say that Man United are no longer rivals for the title this season?
