Arsenal vs Man United
The big games keep coming for Man United as they prepare to take on Arsenal on Sunday.
United will arrive in London on cloud nine following their incredible exploits in the Champions League.
No one gave Man United a hope in hell of progressing past PSG into the quarterfinals on Wednesday night.
Yet United overturned a 2-0 deficit from the first leg, winning 3-1 away in France.
Now attention quickly turns back to the Premier League.
Man United are fourth in the division after 29 games, while Tottenham are just three points above them.
Arsenal will leapfrog United with a win this weekend, while Chelsea in sixth are also firmly in the top four race.
Scott McTominay is an injury doubt
On Thursday in the Times, Paul Hirst has revealed what happened during the Man United celebrations in Paris.
During his description of events, the following note was disclosed about Scott McTominay:
About 25 yards behind him Scott McTominay lay slumped on the turf.
He had either injured himself sprinting towards the away end or cramp had kicked in just before he had arrived at the advertising hoardings.
In a bizarre moment, Gomes did not see the midfielder and ended up falling over his team-mate before picking himself up.
A staff member then hoisted McTominay to his feet so he could get closer to the fans and thank them for the support.
An unforgettable moment for fans and players! 🤯
