The Red Devils gave Arsenal possession while they counter on the break. Rashford’s two goals were outstanding examples. In the end, goals from Rashford and Antony sealed Arsenal’s faith.

Speaking to Football Insider, he said:

“They did well but Man United were clever and picked on Ben White who is the weak link in that defence, he’s not a right-back, he has no pace. They targeted that side and got joy.”

“It was more the fact that Man United, for me, in the full-back areas looked better defensively than Arsenal.“Ben White was found out because he’s not a right-back. You’ve got Tomiyasu on the bench who has got more pace, why not play him? I think that was a mistake.”
