Jamie Redknapp has told Arsenal that they must ensure they make a fast start to their crunch Premier League clash with Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.

The north London side head into the game desperately needing a victory to keep alive their faint hopes of finishing in the top four this season.

Arsenal were beaten 2-0 by Tottenham at White Hart Lane last weekend to leave their Champions League qualification hopes in serious doubt.

Manchester United are not in a much better position and are currently five points ahead of the Gunners, having played a game more than Arsene Wenger’s men.

Redknapp is convinced that Arsenal have what it takes to beat Manchester United on Sunday but says that the home side must make a flying start against the visitors.

Writing in his column for Sky Sports, Redknapp said: “You have to show a good attitude, to show hunger and desire and that you care.

“That’s something Arsenal players have been accused of lacking this season but they need to start quickly against Manchester United, crash into tackles and get their fans on side.”
