Manchester United vs Arsenal: Player Ratings
Arsenal dominated the game in the opening exchanges of the match, as they almost came to scoring when Ben White’s header was cleared by Marcus Rashford, who was on the goalline.
The Gunners continued to threaten the hosts when David de Gea was brought down by his own player from a corner, and taking the advantage, Emile Smith Rowe volleyed in a bottom corner with De Gea still on the floor.
However, after the brief pause, the goal stood, and Arsenal were ahead. Man United got into their rhythm as they started controlling the game. Fred turned around the things when he broke into the penalty area before cutting the ball back to Fernandes, who calmly slotted the ball past Ramsdale.
The second half began with the Red Devils on the front foot when Diogo Dalot played a reverse pass to Rashford, who pulled back for Ronaldo to dispatch into the corner. As the game reached its culmination point, Odegaard fouled Fred in the box, and Ronaldo stepped up to take the penalty dispatching it coolly from 12-yards.
