Nasri: Man United are running scared of us

Samir Nasri claims Manchester United are 'scared' of Arsenal as the two teams prepare to duel for the Barclays Premier League title. Arsenal will move to within a point of Sir Alex Ferguson's team at the top of the table if they beat Sunderland today, with United at Liverpool tomorrow.

The title rivals meet at the Emirates on May 1 in what may prove a decisive game but first collide in an FA Cup quarter- final next weekend.
The France midfielder believes Arsenal have the easier run-in and expects Liverpool to take points from United at Anfield tomorrow, when the absence of Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic will add to Ferguson's problems.
'We have the best schedule,' said Nasri. 'United have to play Liverpool, Chelsea and come to the Emirates. They play at Liverpool without Vidic and Ferdinand so something can happen.
'If we are on our game against Tottenham (Arsenal's game in hand), we can be on top. That's why we can win the title.'
Arsenal go to Barcelona next week attempting to protect a 2-1 lead and clinch a place in the last eight of the Champions League.
But for Gunners boss Wenger, the Premier League takes priority over the quest for European glory.
'My obsession is Sunderland, more so than the Champions League, because it is highly important that we take advantage of our situation in the Premier League,' said Wenger.
'This is the best position we've been in for years, and we can finish the job.' (Source: DailyMail)
