Manchester United - Arsenal: 3 things we learned, analysis, reaction, video

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored his first EPL goal since he signed a new record with Gunners. 

Both teams started the game with full attacking forces but unable to record any goal at first half.
However, Paul Pogba committed a silly foul that led to penalty.  Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored the penalty kick as the only goal of the game.
See what Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have to say
“It’s a very big win. lt’s been a very tough night but I’m really happy because the team did very well. It’s been a long time since we won here so it’s a great night.
Question: [Did you feel like you were in control of the game?]
He continues:
Yes, definitely. We spoke about it at half-time – we knew we had to score and we did. Mikel is bringing something very nice and everyone wants to follow his way. It was good to win tonight.”

Mikel Arteta makes 10 changes from Arsenal’s win over Dundalk, with Elneny the only man present in both line-ups. It also looks more like a back four here, as opposed to the usual three-man defence that Arteta often opts for.

 

 

Despite performing well in midweek, there is still no room for Donny van de Beek in United’s Premier League starting XI. Rashford, after grabbing a 18-minute hat-trick against Leipzig, starts up top with Greenwood, while McTominay comes in in midfield.
