Sunday’s late kick-off saw top four chasing Arsenal host another side after a Champions League spot in Manchester United. Despite media speculation, the tension between Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho had been dismissed as both managers stated their aims to make peace.
Jose Mourinho, who’s side are still competing in the Europa League, made seven changes for the trip to the Emirates, with Axel Tuanzebe making his first Premier League start, while key men Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba only made the bench.
Wenger made two changes to the side that failed miserably at White Hart Lane last week and one of these provided the key goal. After Granit Xhaka’s deflected opener, Manchester United began to come out and attack and Arsenal stunned them instantly. Danny Welbeck, who came into the starting line-up, found space behind Chris Smalling and fired his header past a hapless David de Gea.
Arsenal claimed a vital three points to keep them in the top four race while United now face Celta Vigo in an attempt to get to the Europa League final, but first, who was your man of the match in this fixture at the Emirates?
