Arteta and Arsenal classically destroyed Manchester United with 3-1 win, Declan Rice displays his quality, Video

It was a quality match between Arsenal and Manchester United at the Emirates stadium this evening, the two teams were fantastic but surely the better team won it again.

This result looks like their encounter last season when Manchester United won Arsenal at Old Trafford 3-1.

It was Marcus Rashford as usual on the 27th minutes, he drove forward after receiving a good pass and he took the defenders off to shoot into the far corner of the net. Ramsdale did well but couldn’t push the ball out enough as it eventually went in.

Arsenal equaliser was immediately as they called each other together and worked things out calmly into the dangerous area where Gabriel Martinelli assisted Martin Odegaard and he perfectly beat the keeper on the 28th minutes.

They both went into the halftime 1-1.

VAR denied both teams the chance to go in front, with a penalty to Arsenal chalked off upon review on the hour mark before Alejandro Garnacho’s 88th-minute goal was nullified for offside.

Up stepped Rice, who gave Arsenal all three points by beating Andre Onana to his near post with a half-volley off a corner, assist from Bukayo Saka. It was a deserved victory for the hosts who controlled the match most of the way but had to that point failed to capitalise on much of their attacking possession.

While Mikel Arteta escaped with all three points, he was almost left to repent his match management. For this game, Arteta partnered with Havertz in midfield, and the former Chelsea man had a terrible first half, including a horrible whiff in front of goal and the mistake that led to United’s first.

Arteta then took much too long to make replacements, despite the fact that Havertz was providing very little offensively. Only with 14 minutes remaining, as the United replacements began to take control of the game, did Fabio Vieira enter the game in a substitution that should have occurred at halftime. He should have been in the starting lineup.

The changes Arteta made was really good as we saw Fabio Vieira charging forward to put Gabriel Jesus through on goal when he perfectly beat the  last man and slotted the ball past Manchester United new goalkeeper Onana into the back of the net.

Congratulations to the Gunners, all three points secured.
