United come into this game after their 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. They ended their three match winless streak and also their goal drought in the last fixture. Juan Mata converted from the spot kick in the first half, before the Eagles equalised.

However, it was Marouane Fellaini's goal that proved the deciding factor as Louis van Gaal's side sealed three points. After Liverpool's 3-1 defeat to Crystal Palace, United will finish the season in top four and will return to the Champions League after a year's absence.

Meanwhile, the Gunners suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat at the hands of Swansea City in the last league clash, which ended their winning streak. A late goal from Bafetimbi Gomis was the difference between the two sides.

Arsenal will be looking to bounce back when they face United. Arsene Wenger's side lost the league fixture at the Emirates, while knocking out the Red Devils from the FA Cup at Old Trafford.

What Managers Said

Louis van Gaal: "I and the board said the goal was to get in the first four positions and we have reached that two games before the end of the season.It's not bad, I think. But it's also dependable on how we can make a balance in our selection. It's not good that I have had to change positions of players because players are injured."

Arsene Wenger: "It's very important for your season preparations to not have that kind of stress [about the Champions League qualifier] over your head from the first day you start again - it's vital. The consequences are always dramatic if you don't qualify. What is even more important now is that the international competitions force you, most of the time, to start the new season without your players."
