London:

Arsenal's players could hardly ask for stronger motivation when they face Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday.

The match at Emirates Stadium represents a chance for the Gunners to bounce back from a consecutive defeats, boost their chances of getting back into the Champions League qualifying spots and dent their opponents' chances of retaining the title.

There's also the matter of payback for August's 8-2 humiliation by United at Old Trafford.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says "it is a massive opportunity ... it is time for us to wake up and be focused."

But if Tottenham can grab a surprise win at Manchester City in Sunday's other game, United could draw level with City at the top of the standings with victory over Arsenal.
