Arsenal kept a slender hope for a top 4 finish alive with a 2-0 victory over Manchester United at the Emirates on Sunday. Granit Xhaka and Danny Welbeck made it happen in a three minutes spell to end United’s 25-game unbeaten run in the Premier League.
Jurgen Klopp’s side had slipped 2 points behind in the race earlier on Sunday when they were forced to a barren draw by the Saints at Anfield. The score line at the Emirates now seems favorable to the German maestro as Liverpool are now five points ahead United and seven points ahead the Gunners having played a game and two more respectively.
Jose Mourinho will not give up on getting his team to elite European competition next season as he looks to capitalize on the 1-0 away win over Celta Vigo last Thursday when they meet on Wednesday evening for the second leg tie of the semi final at Old Trafford. United will qualify for the Champions League if they win the UEFA Europa League final set to hold at Stockholm, Sweden.
With the score line at the Emirates on Sunday, the Top 4 race is not yet over and the Manchester clubs including Arsenal and Liverpool are still on the look to grab a two-spots Champions League football next season.
