Arsenal recorded a 2-0 win over Manchester United on Sunday afternoon to keep their hopes alive of a top-four finish this season.

United had the first chance on goal on three minutes, as Wayne Rooney headed over the bar from a Juan Mata cross. Arsenal keeper Petr Cech was called into action on five minutes, parrying an Anthony Martial shot wide of goal.

Arsenal had their first real sight of goal on ten minutes. Alexis Sanchez found Aaron Ramsey in the box with a superb through ball, but the Welshman’s effort was saved low superbly by David De Gea.

Arsenal could seal an automatic place in the Champions League for next season with a win, or a draw at Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.

The home side heads into the clash in fourth-place in the Premier League, just two points behind the Gunners with just two games remaining this season, although the side from north London do have a game in-hand.

Louis van Gaal’s men had suffered three consecutive defeats prior to last weekend’s 2-1 victory at Crystal Palace. The Red Devils also suffered a surprise 1-0 defeat against West Brom last time out at home.

Arsenal defeated Manchester United 2-1 at Old Trafford on Wednesday night in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

The first meaningful attempt on goal came on 19 minutes, as United midfielder Marouane Fellaini received the ball in the Arsenal area and calmly played in winger Ashley Young, who on the stretch fired over the bar.

Just a few seconds later and it was the Gunners who had a chance. Midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain strode into the United box, but chipped the ball harmlessly over with an effort that was neither a cross or a shoot in the end.

The two most successful clubs in the history of the FA Cup go head-to-head at Old Trafford on Monday night, as Manchester United hosts Arsenal at the quarter-final stage of the historic cup competition.

Manchester United heads into this game having suffered just two defeats in their last 22 games in all competitions. The Red Devils have not been particularly impressive this season though, but in true United fashion have ground out results.

They have a good recent record against the Gunners at Old Trafford, having won their last six home games against the side from north London. The Red Devils have been winning at both half and full-time in their last five games against Arsene Wenger’s side on home soil.

Arsenal suffered a 2-1 defeat at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, with an own goal from Kieran Gibbs and a Wayne Rooney goal enough to clinch maximum points for the Red Devils. Substitute Olivier Giroud scored a goal in stoppage-time, but the strike meant very little in the end.

The first attempt on goal came on five minutes, as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain played in Danny Welbeck, but the former-United striker saw his effort deflected wide by centre-back Paddy McNair. Per Mertesacker then headed well wide of goal from the resulting corner kick.

According to club and national team colleague Jack Wilshere, Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck could be ‘the key man’ for both club and country. Welbeck is expected to lead England’s attack in Estonia in the Three Lions Euro 2016 qualifier on Sunday evening.

Welbeck notched his 11th international goal in 23 appearances in the 5-0 demolition of San Marino on Thursday night and now has three goals from the two qualification matches.

Key Man

Speaking ahead of England’s game in Tallinn Wilshere told the press: “The main thing for Danny is his confidence.

Van Gaal claims Welbeck not good enough for Manchester United 1

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has suggested that the lack of goals was the main reason why he decided to sanction the sale of Danny Welbeck to Arsenal.

The Red Devils have been heavily criticised for allowing the 23-year-old to join the Gunners in a £16 million deal on transfer deadline day, even if they recruited Radamel Falcao on loan from Monaco.

And while the impressive performance for England in the 2-0 triumph over Switzerland went on to suggest that Arsenal have gotten their hands on a very good player, Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal claims that Welbeck’s goalscoring record was simply not good enough.

Arsenal’s new striker Danny Welbeck gave Gunners fans a hint of what is to come last night as he fired home a brace for England in the Three Lions 2-0 win at Switzerland in Euro 2016 qualifying.

Lively

Apart from his goals Welbeck looked lively all game and was a constant menace to the Switzerland defence.

His pace and direct running played a key part in Roy Hodgson’s side victory. Welbeck looks to have forged what could be a very dangerous attacking alliance with former-Manchester United team Wayne Rooney and Liverpool starlet Raheem Sterling.

Danny Welbeck states he would thrive in central role 0

Arsenal’s deadline day signing Danny Welbeck has revealed that he believes that his goal scoring rate would improve if he played as a central striker on a regular basis. Welbeck joined the Gunners for a fee in the region of £16million from Manchester United.

Wide

Welbeck has suffered slightly for the fact that he can play on both wings, as well up front. It has meant the 23-year-old has not been able to play as much football as he would have liked at centre-forward, where he believes is his best position.

Arsenal and Manchester United drew 0-0 at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night. The draw leaves the Gunners a point behind Premier League leaders Chelsea in the table.

The visitors had the first real chance of the game, as former-Gunners striker Robin van Persie was put through one-on-one with Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny, who denied the Dutchman with a low save to his left.

The Gunners had a glorious opportunity on five minutes. French striker Olivier Giroud used his strength to good effect to hold off United defender Nemanja Vidic, only to head wide of David De Gea’s post from seven yards out.
