Jack Wilshere: Arsenal can’t let Man United win title at Emirates Stadium
Jack Wilshere admits that Arsenal will be desperate to prevent Manchester United from clinching the title at Emirates Stadium
Jack Wilshere admits that Arsenal will be desperate to prevent Manchester United from clinching the Premier League title at Emirates Stadium later this month.
The Red Devils need just seven points from their remaining six games to win a 20th top-flight crown after their 2-0 win at Stoke on Sunday.
If United beat West Ham and Aston Villa in their next two games, they will travel to Arsenal on 28 April needing just a point to win the title.
But Wilshere insists that Arsene Wenger’s men, who are gunning for a top-four finish, will be out to halt the Red Devils’ title bid ahead of Arsenal’s clash with Everton on Tuesday night.
“We’ve got Everton now which is big, a really important one, and if we win then we’re in a good position,” said Wilshere, who returned from an ankle injury in the 3-1 win over Norwich on Saturday.
“But even then we’re definitely not over the line [in terms of Champions League qualification], we’ve got some tough games coming up.
“Fulham away will be tough, and then we’ve got Manchester United – we obviously don’t want them winning the league at Emirates Stadium, so we’ll be up for that.”
