Arsenal take on the visitors Manchester United in the round 34 match of English Premier League. The match will be played on Saturday, April 23rd at Emirates Stadium (London)
Arsenal are involved in a stubborn struggle for the right to enter the Champions League. During the pause for the matches of the national teams, they not only lost their courage and lost their form – they found themselves in a real crisis. First, Patrick Vieira sent his “hello” to the former club – his “Crystal Palace” defeated the favorite 3-0. And after it was lost in a row to Brighton and Southampton, the team fell out of the Champions League zone. Only on Wednesday it turned out to take a victory, and a bright and significant one – on the Chelsea’s field. The 2nd half was completely won by Mikel Arteta, when Arsenal scored twice more and gained the victory. Thanks to this, it turned out to catch up with the worst enemy – Tottenham. The winner of the dispute for 4th place is the one who can lose a minimum of points at the finish line.

Manchester United before this meeting received a de facto new coach. As expected recently by journalists, Ten Hag was appointed. However, he will only take up the position in the summer, and it has already been announced that there will be a 200 million budget for newcomers. Without Ronaldo Manchester United could not oppose anything to Liverpool, conceding 4 goals from the Reds. This is already the 3rd defeat in the recent matches – before that it was 1-4 in the derby with City and even 0-1 with Everton. With such «successes» it is even strange that it turns out to remain among the contenders for the 4th place – the inconsistency of competitors helps. There are 3 points to Arsenal and Tottenham, however, the Mancunians have already played 1 match more.
Manchester United took a goalless draw in January last calendar year and pulled out a 3-2 victory in December. Arsenal are left without Thomas Partey, Tierney and possibly Tomiyasu. Manchester United will not use Fred, Cavani, Pogba and Shaw, Varane is questionable and, not for health reasons, Ronaldo. Bookmakers believe in Arsenal again. After the mid-week games, the Gunners look more convincing.
