Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has said that the upcoming Premier League clash between Arsenal and Manchester United could be crucial to deciding their top four prospects. United are currently just one point ahead of the Gunners for the final Champions League spot, but they also have Chelsea breathing down their necks with a two-point deficit with a game in hand.
Speaking on Sky Sports, Merson said that the forthcoming league clash between Arsenal and Manchester United could have a detrimental effect on the top four hopes of one side, should they suffer a defeat, he said: "I think a lot of the top-four race goes down to this game on Sunday. That's why it's a massive football match, whoever loses won't be in the top four. But if Arsenal lose they've still got a chance in the Europa League. People are telling me Manchester United could go on and win the Champions League, I'm not sure about that."
