With a 3-1 victory over Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday, Manchester United made it four wins in a row. This terminated Arsenal’s unblemished start to the Premier League season. After Bukayo Saka had canceled off United rookie Antony’s first goal, the high-tempo, high-caliber game was won by two goals on the break from Rashford.
Thanks to their opening four victories, Arsenal maintained its lead at the top of the standings with 15 points. While they will be disappointed to have stopped that streak, this was far from the kind of feeble setback versus Big Six opponents they have recently produced.
After suffering embarrassing losses to Brighton and Brentford to open the season, United appear to have recovered their confidence, and Dutch coach Erik ten Hag’s strategy is bearing fruit.
Although Cristiano Ronaldo and Brazilian Casemiro started on the bench, Antony was given a spot on the right flank with Rashford in the center and Jadon Sancho on the left.
