Arsenal have seen their chances of earning a place back in the Champions League increase significantly.
The Hammers hold the advantage at the current time as they currently sit fourth on 41 points.
Ralf Rangnick’s Red Devils sit just a point behind, while the Gunners are just a further point behind, albeit with three games in hand on West Ham.
Meanwhile, the Gunners’ rivals have seen their own prospects of claiming a place at Europe’s top table take a significant hit.
After three consecutive defeats in the Premier League, the latest being at the hands of Wolverhampton Wanderers, Tottenham now have just a 14% chance. The outlook for the Red Devils is only slightly more positive with a 15% chance.
Elsewhere, David Moyes’ West Ham are the least-fancied at the current time, despite sitting fourth in the table. The Hammers have been handed just a 9% probability of qualifying for the Champions League for the first time in their history following the weekend’s 2-2 draw with Leicester City.
The battle for the top four could be set to take a significant turn on Tuesday night.
Despite the Champions League returning for the first-leg of the round of 16 ties, Manchester United will actually be in Premier League action as they take on Brighton & Hove Albion at Old Trafford.
