If Arsenal and Manchester United are going to turn the race for Champions League qualification into something other than a foregone conclusion, they'll need to win Sunday.
With convincing wins on Friday and Saturday, respectively, third-place Leicester City and fourth-place Chelsea are five points clear of Arsenal and 10 points clear of Man United. The Gunners and Red Devils have tricky fixtures lined up Sunday, though, which could have big implications in the top-four chase.
Arsenal hosts Crystal Palace in a London Derby, looking to avoid a repeat of April's 3-2 loss at the Emirates. The Gunners bounced back from Monday's loss to Sheffield United with a narrow win over Vitória S.C. in the Europa League group stage. But with Arsenal in the middle of a stretch of four matches in 10 days, Unai Emery's squad could be positioned for a letdown.
Manchester United, meanwhile, escaped Belgrade with a 1-0 win over FK Partizan on Thursday. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will need the Red Devils to replicate that road form against Norwich City on Sunday, as United has not won a road match in the Premier League since Feb. 3. The newly-promoted Canaries have not won since beating Manchester City on Sept. 14, however, and a loss at Carrow Road would only heat up Solskjaer's seat.
