Manchester United and Arsenal was the derby in this week’s Premier League and the match ended with a 1-1 draw. This match used to be a great derby with many goals and spectacular footballers, but in the past few years, both clubs are struggling to find their old form and are far away from the title race. 

The first half brought non-spectacular football, with Arsenal having most of the chances. Manchester managed to open the score just a second before half-time. Scott McTominay scored a beautiful goal from outside the box bringing huge joy at Old Trafford.  

The second half started same as the first, with Arsenal putting pressure on Manchester’s half. That pressure paid off in the 58h minute when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang lobbed David De Gea, but the goal was later approved by the VAR system.  

After that goal, both sides played with caution, with Manchester having the best change through Marcus Rashford late in the referee’s added time, but the shot was amazingly saved by Bernd Leno. 

Following this draw, Arsenal takes the 4th place on the table with 12 points – same as West Ham, while Manchester is shockingly on the 10th spot.
