There’s only so many ways to say it, so I’ll cut right to it: Arsenal have to win to keep their slim top four chances alive. They have to win today, they have to win Sunday, they have to win out. Dropping points is not an option. Even after a satisfying win against Manchester United, there’s no other choice tomorrow but to win. The Europa League is a guarantee, no matter what happens the rest of the way; the Champions League is right there, waiting for Liverpool to slip up and for Arsenal to take advantage.
