Arsenal and Manchester United, 2 teams with a history worth gold, but at the present aren’t worth half of the previous. They met on Wednesday on Match of the Day. The North-London side team were in red-hot form, while their opponents were the opposite- drawing 3 from the last 3.
The match began with the red devils pressing the gunners high for the 1st 10-15 minutes. Then, the away team-Arsenal- started firing shots at De Gea with the Spaniard equal to it. However, in the 26th minute, Shkodran Mustafi headed the ball to the goal resulting in a goal with De Gea’s aid. The home side team were down 1-0, but they promised a comeback and so they did. Marcus Rojo swirled in a beautiful free-kick with Bernd Leno saving the shot, however, Herrera crossed in for the magnificent Martial to score. The half ended with Arsenal possession.
Both the sides came with 2nd half optimism. Arsenal introduced changes for the injured Rob Holding and Aaron Ramsey. Lichsteiner and Mkhitarian respectively for the 2. 60 minutes in and Lacazette comes on. The Frenchman had an instant impact. Mkhitaryan passed him in front of goal with Rojo tackling in only to see his foot to the ball and in the goal. The gunners were so delighted seeing a lead at Old Trafford that Jesse Lingard took advantage of Kolasinac’s mistake to level the game. Arsenal pushed for a winner- Aubameyang curling from outside the box and shooting from the inside too, only to see Dave save.
The match ended with the points shared, the sides disappointed missing on 2 valuable points, but the fans were left with entertainment and smiles.
