Petr Cech has said Arsenal’s trip to Manchester United on Saturday will be a “really significant” game for both teams in terms of their chances of success this season.


Arsenal are fourth, but could temporarily go top with a win at Old Trafford, while United are six points behind the Gunners and, according to Cech, “need the three points” if they are to keep any hope of a title challenge.

“It is another six-point game,” Cech told Arsenal Player. “We drew the match against Spurs and there is a little gap between us and Liverpool, so you want to make sure that you stay very close and that every time they drop points, you are ready to take advantage.

“With United, they are behind us, so to leave them [further] behind is one aim and the second thing is to stay near the top, within touching distance of everyone else.

“If United want to think about closing the gap and having a chance to fight for the title, they need the three points.

“It is a big game for both teams and they will try to give themselves a chance, and we have to be ready to adapt to their way of playing. As the match goes, you want to impose your game and control what is happening.
