A number of Arsenal supporters feel that they now have a chance of sealing a top-four place after Manchester City and Manchester United played out a goalless draw at the Etihad Stadium.
The local rivals failed to take advantage in the race for a Champions League spot after United stifled City’s attack.
The result arguably benefitted Arsenal and Liverpool more than it did the Manchester duo.
As it stands, Liverpool sit third, with City one point behind in fourth and United a further two back.
Arsenal are sixth in the standings, five points adrift of the final Champions League spot and have six matches left to play before the end of the league campaign.
Sunday could prove to be pivotal for Arsene Wenger and his men as they take on North London enemies Tottenham Hotspur, who are chasing Chelsea in the race to be crowned champions.
After Arsenal fans watched City and United fail to break the deadlock, they began to see light at the end of the tunnel.
Both Man Utd and Man City drop 2 points.
If Arsenal win all 6 games left we'll make Champions league… but it's a huge 'IF'..#AFC

Top 4 is a real possibility for us now but must avoid defeat against the Spuds to have any chance #afc
