NBC DEPORTES PRESENTS “FÚTBOL ESTELAR: LA LIGA PREMIER,” MANCHESTER UNITED VS ARSENAL ON TELEMUNDO
The Red Devils are determined to leave this match with a one-way ticket to the Champions League, while the Gunners battle to move up in the league rankings this Sunday, May 17 at 10:55AM/9:55C/7:55P
Miami –May 14, 2015- NBC Deportes presents Week 37 of the Liga Premier as Manchester United hosts Arsenal at Old Trafford this Sunday, May 17 at 10:55AM/9:55C/7:55P. As always in such crucial matches, the award-winning Andrés Cantor will be shoulder to shoulder to with former Chivas de Guadalajara star Manuel Sol to bring viewers every detail of the action on Telemundo’s screens and NBCDeportes.com digital platforms, as well as the NBC Deportes EN VIVO EXTRA mobile app.
Last Sunday’s 1-1 tie between Liverpool and reigning Liga Premier champion Chelsea – a match that also aired on Telemundo – put Manchester United in fourth place in the league standings, giving it at least a shot at a runoff spot in next season’s Champions League. Louis van Gaal and his team know the three points from a win over Arsenal would mean a big difference in pushing them into third place.
With only one match left to play this season, Arsenal’s future in the Champions League is also riding on this encounter. The Gunners lost their last game to Swansea by just one point, making their spot in the continental tournament less of a sure thing.
Both teams have an impressive lineup of Latin American players: in the case of ManU, Ángel Di María, Antonio Valencia, Radamel Falcao and Marcos Rojo; and in the case of and Arsenal, David Ospina and Alexis Sánchez.
