Manchester United vs Arsenal

Sunday’s marquee Premier League tie saw Manchester United and Arsenal face off.

These two outfits have played out countless top matches over the years.

However, at Old Trafford, it has most certainly been United who have dominated.

In fact, Arsenal haven’t beaten Man United at home in any competition since 2015, doing so in the FA Cup.

And to find the last time the north Londoners got one over on United at home in the league, you had to go all the way back to 2006.

As a result, though both sides headed into the clash in similar form, Man United did look to be clear favourites.

And when all was said and done in Manchester

 

 

 

Arsenal dominate

The tie started in fairly sloppy fashion with neither outfit able to get a grip on proceedings.

Arsenal, to their credit though, were quite aggressive and did a solid job of preventing the home side from playing out in the early stages.

Thomas Partey also did a decent job of neutralising Paul Pogba’s threat early on.

And it would be the Gunners who came inches away from opening the scoring when Hector Bellerin whipped a low ball across the United box 14 minutes in, to an outstretched Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who couldn’t quite reach the ball.

United eventually managed their first effort on goal 21 minutes in when Marcus Rashford played a lovely ball across the pitch to an advancing Mason Greenwood whose effort was saved by Bernd Leno.

Man United would then slowly start to gain a foothold in the game, causing the visitors a few problems with long balls.

And is often the case with the Red Devils against the bigger sides, the pace of players like Greenwood and Rashford was causing the Gunners a fair few issues, with both Gabriel and Rob Holding earning yellow cards in the first half in their attempts to prevent United’s quick counter-attacks.

Victor Lindelof then got a key touch on a pass meant for Alexandre Lacazette from Aubameyang in the United box, which probably should have ended in a goal.

This was followed moments later by Willian skimming the top of David de Gea’s crossbar and Bukayo Saka directing a free header well over de Gea’s goal 43 minutes in.

The first half drew to a close with Arsenal on top, though they were unable to make their dominance at either end of the half count.
