Arsenal is already facing a must-win game in the Soccer Betting Premier League as they host Manchester United on Saturday.  Manager Arsene Wenger has said the team must come away with a win if they expect to contend for the title this season.  A loss would make it very difficult for the Gunners because they would be four points back of United and could fall as many as nine behind Chelsea and Liverpool. "It's a massive game of massive importance for us," Wenger said. "Manchester United-Arsenal is always a special one. It's important for us that we do well in the big games in this league now." 

Arsenal has not won in any of its last three matches.  They played to a 4-4 draw with Tottenham after leading 4-2.  One of those matches was a draw to Fenerbahce at home in the Soccer Betting Champions League.  Wenger is not happy with his players or with the referees. "In the second half, we dropped physically and were less dangerous from then on," Wenger said, "We were not sharp enough to put our strikers into good positions. You expect us to make chances in the last 20 minutes and this didn't come because physically we didn't have the resources." 

Wenger is really upset about the amount of penalties his team is getting in the Premier League. "Look at the fair play table. Who is top? Arsenal," he said. "Look at the team that makes less fouls. Arsenal. (Yet) who gets more yellow cards after four or five fouls? Arsenal. Some teams get their first yellow cards after 15 fouls." 

The game on Saturday is so important for Arsenal because Liverpool and Chelsea look to have winnable games.  Liverpool is home against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday in a game they should win. Liverpool could get Fernando Torres back for that match on Saturday. Chelsea is at Blackburn on Sunday in a game they could also win. They will want to bounce back strong after losing in Champions League action to AS Roma 3-1 on Tuesday.

Arsenal just can't afford a loss at home to United.  It won't be easy though as United is gearing up for a run at the title led by winger Cristiano Ronaldo. "We want to win the title so we have to get three points there," Ronaldo said. "I don't know if it is tough for them at the moment but they will still have 11 players, the same as us, and I know it will be difficult because it always is."
