Manchester United go into today’s match away to Arsenal knowing that only a win will really do if they are to pull off the unlikely feat of finishing in the top four of the English Premier League.
UEFA Champions League football is the goal whether it comes through the league or a UEFA Europa League win, meaning the club are in the middle of their most important part of the season.
Draws have plagued Jose Mourinho’s side all season but if they can start winning in the tail-end of the season they still have a chance of closing down Liverpool or Manchester City.
Lose or draw today and they’ll have to hope they have what it takes to lift European football’s second-tier competition.
With everything at stake you’d think Red Devils fans may be feeling a little nervous, but that doesn’t appear to be the case.
Many fans are actually confident Mourinho’s team can battle through injury and inconsistency to pick up a massive result over Arsene Wenger’s men.
Supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts ahead of kick-off…
