Arsenal Edge Man United In Five-Goal Thriller, Restore Lead Over City

Arsenal overcame Manchester United 3-2 in a thrilling Premier League clash at the Emirates on Sunday.

A dramatic late winner from Eddie Nketiah, who had cancelled out Marcus Rashford’s opener was enough to give Mikel Arteta’s men victory.

Also, the Gunners avenged their defeat to United early in the season.

United opened scoring in the 17th minute through Rashford who skipped beyond a challenge from Thomas Partey before firing from range into the bottom-left corner.

In the 24th minute Arsenal equalised as they worked the ball down the left and Granit Xhaka’s inviting cross was headed home by Nketiah.

Arsenal then went 2-1 ahead on 53 minutes through Bukayo Saka who drifted inside from the right and curled one from outside the box into the bottom-left corner.

United were back on level terms in the 59th minute as Arsenal failed to clear from a corner and Lisandro Martinez headEd in his first Premier League goal.

But in the 90th minute Nketiah grabbed what was the winner as he cleverly flicked a deflected shot past David De Gea.

    At the end of the game, I saw Partey celebrating with Nketiah.
    A top priority for Ghana would be convincing Nketiah to join them, and Partey may be the man to broker the deal. If that happens, Ghana would finally have the missing piece in their current squad. A genuine striker.
    Arsenal still have a lot to do to win the league, but with 5 points clear of Man City and having a game in hand, I think we can safely say they are well on their way.
