rsenal suffered their first defeat of the Premier League season as Manchester United continued their impressive form and secured another big result at Old Trafford.
After beating Liverpool last month to stem the tide on a miserable start under Erik ten Hag, the home side took the lead ten minutes before half-time as debutant Antony marked his bow at Old Trafford with a goal.
The Brazil international’s price tag has come under intense scrutiny following a huge move to the club on deadline day, although the 22-year-old started paying it back with a fine finish ahead of Aaron Ramsdale after a deft team move.
Mikel Arteta’s side, who were disallowed a goal after Gabriel Martinelli’s opener was ruled out following VAR interference, got back into the game via Bukayo Saka just before the hour of play.
However, as competitive as Arsenal were, Arteta saw his side lose all sorts of form. United’s fluid front line, led by Marcus Rashford, exploited space and the England international bagged a brace to chase the Gunners’ pitiful record at the Theater of Dreams.
