Arsenal defeat Manchester United 1-0 at Old Trafford

Published

Arsenal ended their five-year wait for a Premier League away win against Manchester United with a second-half Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang penalty giving them a 1-0 win at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The Gunners had not enjoyed such a win in 29 games since their victory at Manchester in January 2015.

The result leaves United still without a win at Old Trafford in the Premier League this season and it was a disappointing performance from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

It was disappointing after their impressive display in the 5-0 win over RB Leipzig in the Champions League in midweek.

The decisive moment came when Paul Pogba stood on Hector Bellerin’s foot inside the area and Aubameyang kept his cool to convert the spot-kick.

United did hit the post through a deflected shot from substitute Donny van de Beek late in the game.

Solskjaer’s 100th game as manager ended in a defeat which leaves them in 15th place with just seven points from six games.

Arsenal move up to eighth place on 12 points.
