ARSENAL 1-3 MANCHESTER UNITED
Lacazette (49’minutes) A Valencia (4’minutes),
Lingard (11’minutes, 63’minutes)
In the highly entertaining match of Manchester United and Arsenal, the red devils emerged victorious over the possession-heavy Arsenal.
Manchester United started off brilliantly over clumsy gunner defense as they scored 2 goals under 12 mins through Valencia and Jesse Lingard. The later was brilliantly set up by Anthony martial.
Summer signing Lukaku disappointed with his first touches on the ball and his bulkiness was brilliantly controlled by clumsy Monreal & Laurent Koscielny. The later mostly responsible for opening goals.
Arsenal pulled one back through Lacazette just after the halftime and gave the Emirates Stadium a glimpse of hope. Otherwise, De Gea cemented his case as worlds best goalkeeper.
Just as the arsenal thought they had a chance of salvaging the match Lingard hit them again with his 2nd goal of the match through the assist by Pogba who dazzled past the hapless Laurent Koscielny.
Wenger put out all his attackers against united’s underappreciated defense after Pogba’s red card. But there was no way past the United’s park the bus tactics.
It was after conceding 2 opening half goals, the gunners sprung back to life but their attack proved to be toothless in front of spirited Manchester United keeper De Gea. De Gea made tonnes of saves to deny Arsenal which otherwise would have been a riot in front of United’s goal.
The only problem which is for United now is the red card for Pogba, who would miss the highly awaited Manchester derby which could have been a title decider for United over arch-rivals City.
Now United face table-toppers City without a vital cog in their midfield.
Mourinho has a lot to plot against a much better city next week without superstar Pogba. But if De Gea remains as good as he was in the Emirates, then the city will have to think out of the box to score past the present god present between the sticks.
MOTM (man of the match)- David de Gea
