Arsene: Gunners will gatecrash title party

Arsenal manager Arsene says his side have a point to prove when they travel to Old Trafford to face Premier League champions-elect Manchester United at the weekend.

The Gunners are still smarting from their comprehensive Champions League semi-final defeat to Sir Alex Ferguson's side, with Chelsea rubbing salt into the wound last Sunday with a humiliating 4-1 drubbing at the Emirates Stadium.

United's win at Wigan on Wednesday night leaves the Red Devils needing just a single point from their final two league games to secure a third consecutive title and 18th overall, equalling arch-rivals Liverpool's feat.

But of Ferguson's 10 Premier League titles to date, only one - in 1999 against Tottenham Hotspur - has actually been secured at the Theatre of Dreams.

And Wenger is determined to see his demoralised side spoil the Scot's party yet again and take all three points back to North London.

“We have a point to prove, definitely," he said.

“It looks like it will be Man United who win the league but we can still delay it. We want to play for our pride and be respected for who we are, that is people who love the game they play.

“We promised ourselves on the first of January we would give everything in every game until the end of the season.

“This is where we can show we are capable to do that.”
