Dietmar Hamann is backing Arsenal to beat Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

The Red Devils will make the trip to the Emirates Stadium after a 1-0 win at Celta Vigo on Thursday night.

Marcus Rashford scored a free-kick in the second half to secure a slight advantage in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final.

Manchester United have drawn their last two Premier League games with Manchester City and Swansea City to leave their top-four hopes in doubt.

Jose Mourinho has threatened to field a weakened team against an Arsenal side that lost 2-0 to Tottenham Hotspur in the north London derby.

Writing in his Paddy Power column about the bitter clash between Arsenal and Manchester United, Hamann said:

“Sunday’s game against Manchester United is the last chance saloon for both clubs to get into the Champions League via their Premier League position.

“Liverpool had a great result last Monday at Watford capitalising on the chasing pack’s mistakes. So it’s win-or-bust for both.

“United have some many games to come and a lot of injuries piling up, so I’m picking Arsenal to win this one.”
