Stan Collymore predicts Arsenal v Man United showdown
By Will Butcher
Stan Collymore believes Arsenal will only secure a point against top-four rivals Manchester United on Sunday at the Emirates Stadium.
Arsene Wenger’s side play host to rivals United in a match that could prove crucial in deciding the top-four spots this season.
Former Liverpool star Collymore claimed on his personal Twitter account that Wenger will watch his side earn a point at home against Jose Mourinho’s side in a 1-1 draw.
Liverpool 1 Southampton 0

Arsenal come into the game after suffering a dismal loss to north London rivals Tottenham last Sunday, as goals from Harry Kane and Dele Alli saw Spurs ease to a 2-0 triumph.
The Gunners earned a late point at Old Trafford last time the two sides met, when Olivier Giroud headed home in the 89th minute after Juan Mata had given United the lead.

Three points for the Gunners on home soil could see them move to within six points of the top four with a game in hand over the likes of Man City and Liverpool.
However, a loss could signify the end of their Champions League hopes next season with only five games still to play for the Gunners in England’s top flight.
One point would not be much better and Arsenal fans will be hoping Collymore has got this one wrong.
