Manchester United to beat Arsenal to Champions League?

Manchester United have been priced at 4/7 to secure a top-four finish next season - meaning Sky Bet believe the Red Devils will end the 2014/15 Premier League campaign above Arsenal, who are expected to miss out on a place in the Champions League for the first time in 18 years.

The bookies have priced the Gunners at 5/4 to clinch a place in the top four, while Manchester City (1/20), Chelsea (1/12) and Liverpool (4/9) are all odds on to seal Champions League qualification once more.

Manchester United have endured a dreadful season - their worst of the Premier League era - and will end the current campaign in seventh position if Tottenham avoid defeat to Aston Villa at White Hart Lane this weekend. However, the Red Devils are poised to unveil the vastly-experienced Dutch coach Louis van Gaal as their new manager next week, while as much as £200m could be spent on reinforcements when the transfer window re-opens this summer.

Arsenal recently secured a top-four finish for the 17th consecutive season. While Arsene Wenger has failed to deliver a trophy since 2005, the Frenchman has consistently guided the Gunners to Europe's premier club competition.

But with Manchester United set to miss out on European football altogether next season, the north-west oufit will have the luxury of being able to focus solely on domestic competition, just as Liverpool have done this season.

Will Manchester United finish above Arsenal next season? Have your say in the comments section below.
