Arsenal v Manchester United will have a big say in this season’s race for a top-four finish.

Should the hosts win, they will leapfrog United into fourth and, depending on what Chelsea do at home to Wolves earlier on Sunday, establish a two-point cushion between themselves and fifth-place with eight games left to go in the 2018/19 Premier League campaign.

But if United continue Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s 100% away record across all competitions, Arsenal will end the day outside the Champions League places by four points and probably drop to sixth.

The visitors are low on match-fit players but high on morale after Wednesday night’s historic Champions League comeback win over Paris Saint-Germain. The reverse is true of Arsenal, who have no fresh injury concerns beyond long-term absentees Rob Holding, Hector Bellerin and Danny Welbeck but were beaten 3-1 by Rennes in the Europa League.

Statman Dave has broken down the tactical considerations for Squawka ahead of Arsenal v Man Utd, which you can see in the video above.
