But Tottenham Hotspur responded the next day with their fourth win in five outings, climbing to fifth with a 3-1 triumph over West Ham United.

Former Premier League striker Owen believes Mikel Arteta's men have the edge over their rivals, but cannot wait for their postponed trip to Spurs to be rescheduled.

"I think it's probably Arsenal now," Owen says. "It's going to be a huge game, the north London derby at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

"But I think Arsenal are looking very, very sharp." 

Former Spurs head coach Sherwood is looking beyond north London for the club who will come out on top with their star players crucial to them finishing in the UEFA Champions League spots.

"Manchester United will finish in fourth place above Arsenal and Tottenham," Sherwood says.

"They have got the world-class players. They've got the likes of Bruno [Fernandes], [Cristiano] Ronaldo, [Paul] Pogba.

"I think they always stand up when it matters.

"I've tipped them all year so there is no reason to stop now."

Arsenal's duels against their two closest pursuers could be decisive. As well as the trip to Spurs, Arsenal will also host Man Utd on Saturday 23 April.

And let's not discount West Ham United, who sit a mere two points further back, despite playing more matches. 

Their next two opponents, Everton and Brentford, are struggling for form at the wrong end of the table and wins in these matches could put the Hammers back in the mix.
