Manchester United vs. Arsenal - Football Match Report

Manchester United vs. Arsenal - Football Match Report

Ferdinand said Liverpool and Manchester City are "cut above the rest" in the English topflight league this term.

Chelsea lost for the second time in three matches, squandering an early lead in a surprise 2-1 defeat at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Given United's failure to go on a run this season - Mourinho's side have yet to win three league games in a row and have repeatedly struggled in games they are expected to win - that is a huge gap to make up. Even the bare minimum of Champions League qualification could be beyond United, which is in eighth spot and eight points adrift of fourth-place Chelsea.

Klopp sent on Salah and Firmino soon after James Milner equalized in the 62nd, and they made an immediate impression. And the coach knows it.

Arsenal have enjoyed a good start to the season and in the last few days enjoyed a derby win over Spurs as well as an eventful 2-2 draw at Old Trafford. "They are proving in England that they are very hard to beat".

Arsenal were barely done celebrating when the ball was in the net at the other end as a misunderstanding between Sead Kolasinac and Leno allowed Jesse Lingard to nip in and equalise.

Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota scored in a four-minute span around the hour mark to complete Wolves' fightback and condemn Chelsea to a second loss of the campaign.

It was a much-changed United side too. It was Pogba's absence that stood out, coming at a time when his relationship with the coach appears strained.

Arsenal took the lead in the 26th minute when United goalkeeper David De Gea mishandled Shkodran Mustafi's header off Lucas Torreira's cross, which dropped behind De Gea and out of reach of Ander Herrera's attempt to clear.

Lacazette robbed Rojo and played the ball to Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who returned the favour to put the striker clean through on goal.

Both second-half goals came in a insane minute as firstly Rojo turned the ball off Alexandre Lacazette and into the United net in his attempts to make a last-ditch tackle.

Fulham edged to within a point of safety despite blowing the lead in a 1-1 draw with Leicester.
