United's superstar striker Wayne Rooney believes the Red Devils will be in a 'great position' to retain their Premier League title if they defeat Arsenal on Sunday.
United go into the match eight points behind league leaders Arsenal after a slow start to the campaign under new manager David Moyes.
Rooney has scored nine goals in 17 appearances to date this season.
"I think at the minute there's 28 games to go, anything can happen, one result can turn the league on its
"We're still within touching distance and to get a victory on Sunday will put us in a great position I think.
"It is the perfect fixture for us. Arsenal are obviously doing really well but with our current form, it is a chance for us to get a bit closer in the table.
"I think for us all it's a massive game, Arsenal are doing really well so for us it's a chance to get closer in the table and keep our current form going.
"I've always enjoyed the games against Arsenal, it's a great club and it's great to play against them obviously and to score. Especially when you score winning goals because they're big games."
United went an eighth game without loss when they drew 0-0 at Real Sociedad and enjoyed a 1-0 win against last season's runners-up Borussia Dortmund.
The Gunners lead the league by five points from a trio of rivals.
Rooney admits the north London side have made clear improvements and says it will be 'interesting' to see if they can continue their strong form and avoid a traditional late-season collapse.
"I think they've got some great players and you know they're a good team," said Rooney, whose first Premier League goal came against Arsenal more than 11 years ago," continued Rooney. "I said the other day after the game it will be interesting to see if they can maintain that, certainly over the last six or seven years they've faded off.
"But they seem in a better place, they seem stronger so it will be interesting to see.
"We know we will have to be at our best to beat them but we are capable of that.
"I have always enjoyed my games against them and it has always been a big game. Hopefully we can get the right result on Sunday."
