MANCHESTER UNITED finally saw their 25-game unbeaten streak ended as they lost 2-0 to Arsenal on Sunday.
The loss was a devastating blow to Jose Mourinho as his side conceded even more ground as they attempt to sneak into the top four.
United now sit four points adrift of neighbours Manchester City in fourth and may even be overtaken by the Gunners in the table should they beat Southampton on Wednesday.

However, the defeat should hardly come as a surprise – as United’s record away to top six clubs this season is utterly dreadful.
In fact, in four games – against Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and City – Mourinho’s men have failed to score a single goal.
Manchester United away to the top six
vs Chelsea – 16 shots/0 goals
vs Arsenal – 10/0
vs Liverpool – 7/0
vs Man City – 3/0
vs Tottenham – May 14
First came the game against Liverpool, where they drew 0-0, despite taking seven attempts on goal.
The very next game they travelled to London to take on Chelsea, where they unleashed an outrageous 16 shots… but still lost 4-0.
Fast forward to April, and Mourinho’s United could only muster three shots against City in another tame 0-0.
That brings us to Sunday when United took ten shots but failed to score in a 2-0 loss to Arsenal at the Emirates.
Mourinho’s men have just one more chance to make amends this season, when they take on Tottenham at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
Spurs themselves all but conceded the Premier League title race when they slipped 1-0 away to West Ham on Friday night.
