Fans’ view: What’s the best result between Arsenal vs Liverpool?

by Sam Peoples

Today could be potentially a great day for Manchester United in terms of taking a firm grip on the top four spots in the Premier League.

A home game against Aston Villa, on paper, is a tie where Louis van Gaal‘s side should go into with great confidence after convincing wins over Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, and three points is the only result which will be good enough.

There is interest elsewhere for United fans today because Arsenal take on Liverpool at the Emirates. If the Gooners win, United would open up an eight point gap over the scousers in fifth spot with a win over Villa but a draw could see United jump into third place with the same result.

With that in mind, we asked our followers what they thought the best result is for United:

As most United fans point out, securing the top four is the priority this season so an Arsenal win would give the biggest safety net over Liverpool.

That being said, why simply aim for fourth? A draw could see United jump into third and have a seven point gap over Liverpool which is still comfortable.

Overall, anything but a Liverpool win today puts United in the perfect position to take advantage of an opportunity against Villa. Bring on the game at Old Trafford.
