It was a thrilling match at the Emirates as Declan Rice scored his first goal for Arsenal, and Gabriel Jesus sealed the victory with another goal.
Despite Marcus Rashford giving Manchester United an early lead, Arsenal quickly responded with Martin Odegaard equalizing moments later.
The match had its fair share of VAR drama, with Arsenal having a penalty overturned and United being denied a potential late winner due to an offside call on Alejandro Garnacho.
The Gunners maintained the pressure, and in the final moments, Rice controlled a corner and found the back of the net with a deflection off Jonny Evans. As if that wasn’t enough, substitute Jesus added another goal, leaving no doubt about Arsenal’s victory.
With this win, Arsenal now sits in fifth place in the table, just two points behind the league leaders, Manchester City. On the other hand, United finds themselves in eleventh place.
Meanwhile, Dominik Szoboszlai scored his first goal for Liverpool and Mohamed Salah netted his seventh in seven games against Aston Villa as the hosts eased to a 3-0 Premier League victory at Anfield on Sunday.
Jurgen Klopp’s side, who have won 10 of their last 12 matches against Villa, climbed to third in the table on 10 points from four games. Villa have six points.
Two days after Liverpool reportedly rejected a 150 million-pound bid for Salah by South Arabian club Al-Ittihad, the Reds talisman netted goal number 188 of his Liverpool career with a toe poke at the back post in the 55th minute off Darwin Nunez’s headed flick from a corner.
Klopp, who managed his 300th Liverpool game on Sunday, shot down rumours around Salah’s departure before kick-off.
“This was a media story and it never came true,” the German manager told Sky Sports. “I have a big desk in my office with a lot of papers are on there, I have a laptop, iPad, everything that you need and none of them are busy with this kind of news.”
