Sir Alex Ferguson did not hide that the chance to end Arsenal’s season with a victory on Sunday is added incentive for him and his side.

Should United win, we will open up a nine-point gap over the Gunners which would end their fading title hopes and complete a disastrous week for them. It’s easier said than done but what better moment there could be to face them?

‘It makes it difficult for them. No question,’ he said at his pre-match press conference on Friday.

‘Five games to go is not a lot of leeway for them. They can’t afford to drop any points.

‘But that doesn’t make it any different for us in our preparations for an Arsenal game because they are always very competitive games anyway.’


Well, all right, he’s tried to hide his eagerness to get a big one over Wenger – but I think he failed, it’s way too obvious that he’s thrilled by the prospect of greatly enhancing our own chances by ending his old rival’s season. So am I.
