MANCHESTER UNITED VS ARSENAL MATCH REVIEW

Manchester United have gotten their 4th win in a row by beating Arsenal, going 3 points away from the top of the league.

After beating Leicester only 3 days ago, United managed to defeat top-of-the-league side Arsenal 3-1 at Old Trafford climbing to 5th place, only 3 points from 1st position.

 

The first goal came when Rashford attracted 2 of Arsenal's defenders to him which gave space to Antony to exploit and score on his debut with his preferred left foot and then celebrate wildly, kissing the United badge, an action that made Old Trafford erupt in joy.

Arsenal then equalised through Saka in the 60th minute. The draw didn't last long though because in the 66th minute a killer pass from Bruno freed Rashford to outrun the Arsenal defenders and score his first of the night.

Then, in the 75th minute, a delightful pass from Dalot sent Eriksen through on goal who decided to gift it to Rashford to score his 2nd goal of the night. Incredible result and good overall performance from Erik ten Hag's men.

 

Quotes after the game:


Erik ten Hag:

"We not that long together as Arsenal have been."


"I understand fans. They dream. But we are at the start of the process. We are still far away."


"I set high standards every day. There is a lot of room for improvement."


" We put him (Eriksen) a bit more down on the pitch, like a 6 or 8, there is a lot of freedom but he has to be in shape. I think he can make a game, receive the pass between the lines and also do the pass into an attack for a goal. He can improve his defending, like today, one small mistake and then a foul, so we will give him that. I think he was magnificent."


"We can all see what a threat he is (Antony), but we missed a player on the right wing where Sancho and Rashford like to play from the left, he was a missing link."


"Bruno Fernandes gets support - he can always pass the final ball, he can also receive the final ball.


Roy Keane:

"They're just getting on with it. It's very, very good."

"They beat Liverpool a few weeks ago & we said 'can they back it up', and they have."


Christian Eriksen:

“It was a lovely afternoon.”

 

Very important to note that GlazersOut protests continued today before the match and will continue to happen at every home game this season.
