Tottenham slump offers chasing Arsenal, Man Utd, Chelsea Champions League hope

Tottenham slump offers chasing Arsenal, Man Utd, Chelsea Champions League hope

The Gunners ended United's 100 per cent away record under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Sunday, with Granit Xhaka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang securing what could be a vital three points in the top-four race.

The caretaker manager also blamed his first defeat in 13 league matches on missed chances. "I was stood right behind the ball and we don't put enough pressure on Xhaka, who must be Brazilian by the way because he struck the ball and it swerves and moves".

United's visit Wolves for an all-Premier League FA Cup quarter-final on Saturday night is followed by a 10-day window for Euro 2020 qualifiers and worldwide friendlies, and United want to pin things down in time to get the deal done.

Arsenal are now fourth in the Premier League, two points clear of Man Utd, and just a point adrift of north London rivals Tottenham.

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil referenced him in a post-match tweet which read: "Dance floor huh?!"

Molde director Oystein Neerland said last week: "Before Christmas we signed a new deal with Ole Gunnar for three more years, until 2021". Thank you Emirates Stadium!

Leno was in fine form as he produced a number of solid saves to keep Manchester United at bay on Sunday afternoon.

There was no need to refer to VAR when Juve next had the ball in the net through Ronaldo's first header past the Slovenian keeper. And Ronaldo slammed his spot-kick past Jan Oblak before trolling Atletico boss Diego Simeone with his celebration.

"When you see the boys work as hard as they do, the attitude they show in training - today we were lethargic in the first 10-15 minutes, did not have the zip and we did not take the chances".

When asked whether there was added motivation to beat United because of what happened in the FA Cup tie, he replied: "Yes, of course".

"I don't class it as a mistake. I got a pulse when the text message came!"

"In your mind you will never forget something like that, when someone is celebrating", he said.

"We knew Manchester United could use different tactics but we wanted to impose our gameplan and I think we did that".

But it is bad news for Huddersfield and Fulham at the other end of the table, both collecting far fewer points than the historic average - with the Cottagers recording a record low for a team in 19th spot after 30 games.
