Gunners clinch draw at Old Trafford

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s equalising strike required a crucial VAR intervention to give Arsenal a 1-1 draw against Manchester at Old Trafford in the Premier League this morning.

After a less than impressive first 40 minutes, the home side took the lead through Scott McTominay’s deflected strike from 22 yards following a swift counter-attack move started by Daniel James, just moments after goalkeeper David de Gea produced two back-to-back saves to keep Arsenal out.

The Gunners hit back through the help of VAR as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang lifted the ball brilliantly over De Gea, played onside by Harry Maguire after Axel Tuanzebe’s sloppy pass in the 58th minute, giving the Gabon striker his seventh goal in seven Premier League games this season.

Following the match, Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said, “Effort is never a problem with these boys. Great attitude, desire, they’re working hard every day in training to improve.

“The first 20 minutes we were a bit passive, we didn’t go for it enough. Yeah, we pressed but when we got the ball we slowed the game down. We should have quickened things up. With the pace we’ve got and the conditions, we should take more risks going forward.”

The draw at Old Trafford this morning means this is the first time Manchester United have won fewer than 10 points in their opening seven games in the Premier League.
