Despite being the better team, Arsenal lost their unbeaten streak to Manchester United at Old Trafford yesterday. The Gunners had chances to put the game to bed but failed to capitalize.

United were second fiddle, but they capitalized on their opportunities. Rashford’s two quick counter-attacking goals ended Arsenal’s hopes of a comeback.

Erikson’s line-breaking pass put Rashford through, and the English forward calmly dispatched. But, according to Neville, William Saliba could have done more to stop Rashford.

He stated on Sky Sports:

“I was just talking about Arsenal’s midfield but they get counter-punched, they give the ball away and it’s that combination, Eriksen into Fernandes and it’s that run from Rashford.”

“Saliba just doesn’t drop, sort his feet up quick enough, originally I thought he got it stuck under his feet, he’s through, but this first touch isn’t brilliant and it’s that little deflection that might help him in the end, takes it over Ramsdale.”
