Manchester City seized the lead in the Premier League on Tuesday by going very easily to win at the penultimate West Bromwich Albion (5-0) on Tuesday during the 20th day.
City are one point ahead of United who move to red lantern Sheffield United on Wednesday.
But the Sky Blue still have one game to go.
The case was already folded at the break (4-0) under the leadership of an Ilkay Gündogan in very good shape for a few games and which completely made us forget the absence of Kevin de Bruyne on injury.
The German midfielder scored a brace (6th, 30th), interspersed with a goal from Joao Cancelo (20th) on which the West Brom defense had stopped playing because the assistant referee had raised his flag, without the referee blowing his whistle, before being contradicted by the VAR.
Riyad Mahrez (4-0, 45 + 2) added to the score just before the break before Raheem Sterling also left his goal (5-0, 57th) making this match the 5th in a row at home where WBA concede at least three goals.
Arsenal is back
Released this weekend of the FA Cup of which he was defending champion by Southampton, Arsenal took revenge by going to win in the south of England (3-1) in the league, in Southampton, thanks to a goal and a decisive pass from Alexandre Lacazette, a pawn from Pépé and another from Saka.
These three points replace the Gunners in 8th place, 5 points from qualifying places for the Champions League, while the Saints switch to the second half of the standings (11th).
After a cataclysmic first part of the season, Arsenal and their coach Arteta are doing much better and remain on a five-game winning streak from their last six league games.
