Manchester United need to get at least a draw out of tomorrow’s game against Arsenal to win the Premiership for the third year in a row.

Arsene Wenger, whose team used to rival United for the title, has praised his former rivals.

“The 18-point gap is a reflection we have to take on the chin,” said Wenger. “What people forget is that we were very far behind and we dropped too many points. Man United are world champions, European champions and will be champions of England. Everybody has to cope with that, not accept it and come back next year and beat them. Manchester United have been better than us without a doubt, the whole season. They played under pressure, Liverpool won the day before, the next day they come out and they believe they will win. At the end of the day, you have to say: ‘Yes, you are the best’ and there is no shame to say: ‘Yes you are the best’.”
