Man Utd

Marcus Rashford’s two second-half goals inflicted Arsenal’s first defeat of the season as Man Utd won 3-1 at Old Trafford after Antony scored on debut.

The Brazilian, who joined Man Utd for £86m on Deadline Day from Ajax, made a dream start to life at United by scoring a first-half opener with a cool first-time finish (35).

Arsenal came to Old Trafford aiming to win their opening six games of the season for the first time since 1947 and they thought they had taken a 12th-minute lead as Martinelli finished superbly when played through by Saka after Eriksen had been robbed of possession by Odegaard.

But the goal was disallowed after VAR advised referee Tierney to check the pitchside monitor, where he ruled that Eriksen had been fouled by Arsenal’s captain in the build-up.

Martinelli came close to opening the scoring again in the 32nd minute but David de Gea excellently saved the Brazilian’s back-post header from Odegaard’s cross.

Three minutes later, though, the home side took the lead through debutant Antony, who swept home a first-time left-footed finish into the bottom corner from Rashford’s pass.

Antony’s goal came after Arsenal had been denied a 12th-minute opener by VAR after referee Paul Tierney used the pitchside monitor to disallow Gabriel Martinelli’s clinical finish for a foul on Christian Eriksen by Martin Odegaard in the build-up to the goal.

Mikel Arteta’s side deservedly levelled early in the second half when Bukayo Saka rolled home (60).

Arsenal started the second half strongly and deservedly levelled in the 60th minute after Saka finished off the rebound from Diogo Dalot’s last-ditch tackle on Gabriel Jesus.

But United retook the lead just six minutes later as Rashford fired home from Bruno Fernandes’ through-ball.

Rashford then scored his second with a breakaway goal set up by Eriksen in the 75th minute to secure a fourth consecutive victory for Erik ten Hag’s side, who move up to fifth.

United are now three points behind leaders Arsenal as the Gunners’ unbeaten start comes to an end with the north London side only a point ahead of Manchester City and Tottenham.
