Preview: Arsenal v United

Date, time and coverage: Sunday 28 April (kick-off 16:00 BST). The match will be shown live in the UK on Sky Sports and you can follow it via ManUtd.com's exclusive text and radio commentaries at tracker.manutd.com.

Form guide: The champions, who have won nine and lost just one of their last 11 games against Arsenal in all competitions, are 16 points clear at the top of the table and in fine fettle after clinching the title on Monday night. Sunday's match is another huge game for Arsenal who are fighting with Chelsea and Tottenham for one of the remaining Champions League spots. The Gunners have been in good form of late with six wins from their last eight league games. They're prolific in front of goal at the Emirates too - they're just one behind top scorers United in the home-scoring stakes.

Ins and outs: Sir Alex has promised to field a strong side at the Emirates (United still have the chance to beat Chelsea's record points' tally), but the Reds remain without Ashley Young who is out for the remainder of the campaign with an ankle complaint, while Paul Scholes could still be missing with a knee problem. Nemanja Vidic and Chris Smalling both sat out Monday’s title-clinching win over Villa, but could return at the Emirates. Arsenal are definitely without Lukasz Fabianski (rib), Ryo Miyaichi (ankle) and Abou Diaby (knee), but Mikel Arteta (ankle) may be back.

Betting: Arsenal are bwin's 11/10 favourites to win Sunday's clash with the Reds at 9/4. The draw is 5/2. Robin van Persie netted against his former club at Old Trafford earlier in the season and is 5/1 to open the scoring this time round. Find more odds and place bets with the Reds' official online
