Arsenal 3-1 Man Utd

by | Sep 4, 2023 | Football

Arsenal and Manchester United delivered an exciting match at the Emirates Stadium, with the home team ultimately emerging victorious thanks to late injury-time goals from Declan Rice and Gabriel Jesus. The Gunners seized the early advantage and applied pressure on Erik ten Hag’s squad, only for a rapid counterattack to set up Marcus Rashford with a clear goal-scoring opportunity.

Rashford skillfully cut inside from the left wing and executed a splendid finish into the far corner of the net, giving the visitors the lead in the first half. However, United had little time to savor their lead as Arsenal swiftly advanced down the left flank, and the impressive Gabriel Martinelli delivered a precise cross into the middle of the box, allowing Martin Odegaard to equalize.

In the second half, Kai Havertz believed he had won a penalty when he was brought down in the box by Aaron Wan-Bissaka, but VAR overturned the initial decision made on the field. Man Utd substitute Alejandro Garnacho thought he had secured the victory just two minutes before the end, only for VAR to rule him offside.

The match saw eight minutes of added stoppage time, during which Rice met a corner kick from Bukayo Saka, controlled the ball with his chest, and fired a low shot past Andre Onana to put Arsenal in the lead. To cap off the performance, Jesus added a third goal, sealing the victory in favor of Arsenal.
