By virtue of having at least one, even two games in hand in some cases on those around them, Arsenal are still in with a faint sniff of a top four finish this season – but they can’t afford to drop any more points.

Arsene Wenger’s booked a place in the FA Cup final but the Gunners pride themselves on qualifying for the Champions League every year and less than maximum points this weekend will likely end that run.

The Gunners welcome Manchester United to the Emirates. United sit one place and five points ahead of Arsenal but a win for Wenger’s men leaves the just two points behind the Red Devils with a game in hand.

Arsenal drew 1-1 at Old Trafford in the reverse fixture earlier this season but both teams are different sides now than they were then and both are in desperate need of the win to keep their top four hopes alive.

Here’s our Arsenal predicted XI.
