Arsenal vs. Man United live score, updates, highlights & lineups from Premier League clash

Manchester United take on Arsenal at Emirates Stadium, with both teams knowing that a loss could be fatal for their hopes of Champions League football next season.

A series of three defeats left Arsenal looking out of the race, but an unexpected win at Stamford Bridge has lifted the spirits of Mikel Arteta’s side. The hosts were struggling for goals before they put four past Chelsea, and the Gunners look to have found their firepower just in time.

United will be licking their wounds after a 4-0 loss to Liverpool, and the mood at Old Trafford is bleak, despite the announcement of Erik ten Hag as next season’s manager. The return of Cristiano Ronaldo to the team will be a welcome relief.

Finishing in the top four would make a world of difference to both of these teams and, with both sides having tough fixtures to come as they see out the season, not dropping any points today is vital.
