Report: Manchester United 3-1 Arsenal – The Red Devils triumph in a hard-fought battle – Man United News And Transfer News

Manchester United ended Arsenal’s winning start to the season by beating them 3-1 at Old Trafford.

In the first ten minutes, United were full of energy with a lot of pressure in the final third.

It was Eriksen who had the first big chance of the half. A lovely Dalot trick chose the Dane at the back post, but he volleyed wide.

Moments later, Arsenal struck back and Martinelli finished very well for the Gunners, but Fernandes talked a lot about a possible foul on Eriksen in the build-up.

VAR, under much scrutiny after yesterday’s controversy, stepped in and disallowed the goal. A sigh of relief echoed through Old Trafford.

However, the momentum was with Arsenal as they quickly tried to put the point back on the board.

The new kid on the block, Antony had a chance to put the Reds ahead, but his rocket from outside the box went wide.

Arsenal had some good runs and it was thanks to some good saves from David de Gea that Arsenal didn’t take the lead.

But Antony was the biggest threat on the pitch and it was the debutant who opened the scoring.

He was introduced by Marcus Rashford, who had seen him run down the left and calmly placed him in the far corner.

It was a good start to the second half by the Gunners as they looked for a way to come back, but United’s defence, though sitting deep, relaxed as they set up screens.

Dalot drowned out a cross from Martinelli as Arsenal tried to attack. They were growing up in the game.

Odegaard had a chance to equalize but was unable to connect with a pass from Jesus and moments later Saka had a chance but it went wide.

However, he was the threat to Arsenal as he rattled wood while trying to pick a teammate.

However, it was the England man who equalized in the 60th minute and started the game.

United were struggling in this half, and Arsenal looked like they could go on and win as they dominated possession.

Rashford made a run and Eriksen made a beautiful pass to him but he was offside.

However, Rashford would put the Reds ahead again, as Fernandes played a beautiful through ball to his feet and put him past an advancing Ramsdale.

The momentum had quickly changed for United and although Jesus had a chance that went just wide, it always looked like the hosts would score again.

This time it was Fernandes who freed Eriksen, who went on goal but, seeing Rashford on his left, passed to the striker, who shot three! It was a beautiful game of link by the trio.

United tried to hold on, Arsenal tried to fight back, it was a tense ten minutes.

Despite some injury-time chances for the Gunners, United defended well and came out on top at Old Trafford.
