Manchester United clinched an exciting victory when Antony scored on his debut and ended Arsenal’s winning streak this season with an intense game at Old Trafford.
The Gunners had won all five of their games so far and United have now won the last four on the rotation.
Arsenal have been at the top for a long time, pushing United into their own half with Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli lingering threats.
But United’s £82m signing from Brazil was clinical when his opportunity arose, deflecting his shot against goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale against the run of the game.
Arsenal got back on level terms when Jesus lost control of the ball in the box and it fell to Bukayo Saka, who comfortably turned it home before Bruno Fernandes calmly took out Marcus Rashford with a great pass six minutes later and the 24-year-old finished his Shot.
Mikel Arteta’s side still appeared to be in control until Rashford scored his second game – a clinical finish after a quick counter-attack.
Rate players up to 10 points during or after the game. The guesser closes 30 minutes after the final whistle.
