Manchester United winger Ashley Young believes victory over Arsenal today will be decisive in the title race.

United face four consecutive away games, in the league and Champions League, after Saturday's Old Trafford meeting with the Gunners and, after picking up an important three points at league leaders Chelsea last Sunday, Young says United are determined to follow it with a positive result against another of their big rivals

"Winning on Saturday would be massive," the winger told "We want to stay in touching distance with the other teams at the top so we know Saturday is vitally important. We got the win last week against Chelsea and if we can kick on tomorrow and win again it sets us up for the next few weeks.

"When you think of Arsenal teams normally you think of them passing non-stop and pretty much passing their way to the goal. But I think they have got stronger physically this season and they look very motivated. We can't concentrate too much on them though, it's important we focus on ourselves and make sure we're on top of our game."
