In a thrilling premier league encounter at North London, Emirates stadium to be precise Manchester United’s impressive unbeaten run came to an agonising end.
In the build up to the match, few would have expected a victory from the gunners given their recent poor run of form and United’s impressive record so far.
The match started with a little bit of urgency from both sides, Romelu Lukaku went close first when his effort hit the post. Manchester United were made to rue that missed opportunity as Arsenal struck some minutes later.
Granit Xhaka received a pass from impressive Lacazette, shifted to his left foot a released a swerving shot from almost 20 yards out which caught De Gea napping before resting at the back of the net.
Manchester United mounted the pressure as they kept launching one attack after the other but Arsenal’s defence and of course classical goalkeeping from Bernd Leno kept them at Bay.
They did come close later in the first half as Fred hit the foot of the post from a shot outside the area.
The second half continued more like the first as United kept pressing. Arsenal graguallggot a foot on the game and proceeded to double their lead from the spot after Lacazette was fouled by Fred.
Aubameyang stepped up and did much better than his last spot kick sending De Gea the wrong way and throwing North London into a frenzy.
Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s impressive record finally came to a halt as they were gunned down by a clinical Arsenal side
