Arteta’s team, driven by Tavares, Saka and Xhaka, won 3-1, consolidating their fourth place in the Premier. Another knockout of the Red Devils after Liverpool
Even in such a delicate moment, Cristiano Ronaldo carried the team on his shoulders. He played, scored and cheered, dedicating his goal to his son who was born dead last Monday. All this, however, was not enough to prevent the umpteenth defeat of Manchester United. After a 4-0 win against Liverpool on Tuesday, the Red Devils also lost at Arsenal. Arteta’s team, driven by Tavares, Saka and Xhaka, in fact won 3-1, consolidating the fourth place in the standings which, at the end of the season, would guarantee access to the next Champions League.
The match at the Emirates Stadium immediately went downhill for the Gunners, who took the lead in the 3 ‘with a tap-in from Tavares, good at mocking De Gea after the Spaniard’s rejection on Saka’s shot. United’s response comes with Dalot, who hits a crossbar. At half an hour, the Var leaves the Arsenal fans with bated breath for two minutes: first he cancels a goal by Nketiah for offside, then – during the same review – he signals a penalty foul by Telles. Referee Pawson points to the spot, Saka is very cold and scores 2-0. At 34 ‘the usual Ronaldo shortens the distance: the Portuguese coldly deflects a cross from Matic and rejoices with a thought for his son who died last Monday. CR7 thus scores the seventh goal in his last eight appearances against the Gunners and, above all, the hundredth in the Premier League: he thus becomes the first player to reach triple figures in the Spanish and English leagues. In the second half United pushed for a draw, but luck did not assist him. At 58 ‘Fernandes hits the post with a penalty kick, shortly after Dalot imitates him on an assist from Cristiano, who also scores 2-2 in the middle but in an offside position. In the end, Xhaka takes care of the accounts, with a southpaw from outside the box who ends up under seven: 3-1 for Arsenal and consolidated fourth place, while the Rangnick team slips to -6 despite having played one more game.
