The hope of Arsenal winning their 6th English Premier League game was dashed, as Manchester United put paid to their winning streak at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils were all out in the early part of the game to clinch the 3 points but the Gunners later took control of the game with United defence, warding off dangers, with David De Gea in his right element, making daring saves.

The encounter lived up to its billings as the star match fixture, what could have been the 1st goal of the encounter for the visitors in the 12th minute was ruled out by VAR, for a foul on Christian Eriksen before Gabriel Martinelli’s brilliant finishing.

However, in the 35th from the counter attack, via a clinical pass from Marcus Rashford, the E 86 M signing, Anthony, brilliantly put the ball at the back of the net for the 1st goal of the encounter.

The Gunners got the leveller through Bukayo Saka, the English International in the 60th minute but just six minutes later, Marcus Rashford made it two goals with a through pass from Bruno Fernandes.

while the third goal came in 75th minute from a set from Eriksen for Marcus Rashford to score the third goal and a brace for himself in the highly explosive encounter.

The legend, Cristiano Ronaldo, came in into the fray in the second half to replace Anthony to fortify the attack which actually paid off as Cristiano was all over the pitch, with killer and penetrating passes.
