Player ratings: Manchester United 3-1 Arsenal

Fresh Arsenal newsletter

Arsenal found themselves inefficient in both boxes as they fell to a 3-1 defeat at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

The Gunners scored early in the game, but it was ruled out on forensic investigation by VAR. Manchester United then took the lead, against the run of play through new signing Anthony.

Arsenal were dominant in the early stages of the second half and equalised when Saka pounced on a loose ball. Manchester United were a threat on the counter and scored two quick goals on the break, slicing through the heart of Arsenal and that killed the game, 3-1.
