The Gunners go to Old Trafford today top of the table.
Donât write them off,â Meulensteen told talkSPORT. âThis game against Arsenal is going to be very important. If it ends as a draw then eight points is a fair gap. But if they lose then 11 points is a big gap. It would be much more difficult to claw back.
âIf Manchester United do come out with a win, which theyâre capable of doing, then suddenly the gap is only five.
âI can always remember the manager [Sir Alex Ferguson] saying to us, âas soon as we get into January the most important thing is that we are not more than six points off the topâ."
