David Moyes is tipping Arsenal to pip Manchester United to a top-four finish in the Premier League this season.

Both the Gunners and the Red Devils missed the opportunity to take a step towards Champions League qualification over the weekend as they suffered defeats by Crystal Palace and Everton.

Chelsea FC, meanwhile, could only muster a 2-2 draw with Burnley in the Premier League on Monday night.

The weekend’s results leaves the race for the final two Champions League qualification positions as open as ever as the season reaches its climax.

Manchester United have been in particularly poor form in recent weeks and they slipped to a humiliating 4-0 loss to Everton on Sunday.

And former Red Devils boss Moyes seems to think that Arsenal are better placed to finish in the top four this season than Everton.

Speaking in an interview quoted by The Sun, Moyes said: “I think the outsiders would be Manchester United at the moment.

“If I was pushed I would probably go for Arsenal, I think they might just make it with the games they’ve got.

“But I couldn’t be sure because Arsenal are inconsistent as well.

“I think Chelsea will be there or thereabouts but I don’t know if they look like they’ve set their sights on the Europa League final, trying to get through and winning it as a way to get to the Champions League.

“Arsenal have done remarkably well, but that’s what we’re saying about United as well, so have United in the last three months, done remarkably well.

“But Arsenal at home, the only reason I where would say it wouldn’t be is because when Arsenal are away from home.

“I saw their performance against Everton [at Goodison Park], it was really poor.

“But I think Arsenal, where they are, might be the ones to make it.”

Manchester United will return to Premier League action on Wednesday night when they host Manchester City in the crunch derby clash at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils have been left only playing for a top-four finish this season after they were dumped out of the Champions League by FC Barcelona in the quarter-finals.
