London: Arsene Wenger insists he has no problem asking his Arsenal players to form a guard of honour for Manchester United on Sunday, but the Gunners boss is determined to send the newly-crowned champions home empty handed as the race for the top four heats up.

With United ending Manchester City's reign as champions on Monday, the focus this weekend turns to the tense battle to qualify for the Champions League.

City are well set in second place, so the pressure is on third-placed Arsenal, who take on United at the Emirates Stadium, fourth placed Chelsea, who face Swansea at home on Sunday, and fifth placed Tottenham, who travel to Wigan on Saturday.
