Arsenal-Manchester United: Big deal for Gunners despite Ronaldo’s goal

This Saturday (3-1) victorious over Manchester United, Arsenal resume their Champions League race pending Tottenham results, the Gunners are in fourth place while Manchester United walk away from the Champions League

The Gunners are back on Champions League dreams. After eliminating Chelsea in the middle of the week, the Gunners defeated Manchester United (3–1) to offer themselves another Top 4 contender. If the challenge of this match was mainly sports, then all eyes were on Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese were making a comeback after the death of their son earlier this week. The Portuguese could not stop their team’s defeat in the 7th minute with applause from the Emirates Stadium. Shortly before cheering from the Gunners’ lair, Nuno Tavares opened the ball. Saka, taking advantage of the clumsiness of the Mancunian defense, tries his luck but stumbles upon David de Gea. Tavares, like the superficial fox, sniffs the right shot and pushes the leather under the net (3rd).

Committed by his public, the Gunners roll out and double the bet for a converted penalty by Bukayo Saka, who takes the law into his own hands after a foul by Alex Telles (32nd).

As often as they are harassed, Manchester United depend on their potential man: Cristiano Ronaldo. Impressed by his recent grief, the Portuguese distances himself from the far post to deceive Aaron Ramsdale with his left foot. Put back in the game, the Red Devils come back from the locker room with a knife between their teeth. Bruno Fernandes had a chance to level both the teams but his penalty crashed at the position of the Gunners (57th). Cristiano Ronaldo looks to equalize at the end, but when it is not the post, it is VAR that plays the trick on Ralph Rangnik’s men, it denies the goal of CR7. The Gunners hunk and patiently let the storm pass. At the hour mark, when Arsenal lost the thread of the match, Granit Zaka came out of his box and drove the ball past de Gea’s net with a dry shot from the left (61st). The return of Rashford and Lingard will not change the course of the meeting.

From the Manchurian side, the Champions League is now far away. 6th with a game ahead of West Ham and two ahead of Tottenham, the Ralph Rangnik-led side will now work to secure a European spot. It will find success against Chelsea next Thursday. Mikel Arteta’s side travel to West Ham next Sunday, possibly without Bukayo Saka, who was injured in the 74th minute.
