The game between Arsenal and Man United was big enough anyway but after seeing Tottenham get beaten by Southampton today it has become even more crucial as there are now just five points between third and sixth.
If Man United win they will go level with Spurs, and if we win we will leapfrog United into fourth, just one point behind our neighbours. But Chelsea, who are currently 6th, are at home to Wolves and could end the day two points behind Spurs with a game in hand. Boy things are getting tight in the race for the Top Four!
The great news for Arsenal is that this is their last game against a Top Six side, whereas Tottenham still have away games to play at both Liverpool and Manchester City, and I wouldn’t fancy much of their chances of winning either of them.
If United beat us today they may end up as favourites for Third place as they have a good run but two crucial home games against Man City and Chelsea, while the Blues also face a very testing trip up to Anfield.
But if we win this today, hopefully we will be gaining confidence to win all our games against the lower level sides while the rest of our Top Four rivals are busy taking points of each other in the remaining games.
