Van der Sar: Eager for prize
Edwin van der Sar is eager for Manchester United to seal the Premier League title against Arsenal on Saturday.
The Red Devils need four points from their remaining three games of the season to seal a third successive top-flight crown.
United take on Wigan Athletic on Wednesday before hosting the Gunners at the weekend, live on Sky Sports 1 & HD1.
And Dutch goalkeeper Van der Sar has his eyes on wrapping up the title versus Arsenal as it will take greater focus off their final game against Hull City, ahead of the UEFA Champions League final with Barcelona on 27th May.
He said in the Daily Star: "We had three games coming up in seven games. This was the first hurdle - and I think we took it well.
"We would rather win it on Saturday against Arsenal than let it go to the last game of the season because that is close to the Champions League final.
"So, yes, we will try to win it this week."
