Mikel Arteta had to test his invincibility against a resurgent Manchester United squad who have gone three matches unbeaten after suffering two shock opening defeats to Brighton and Brentford.

Despite a perfect record since preseason and a well-blended and articulated squad, Mikel Arteta was a no match for the Dutch tactician. Manchester United defied Arsenal’s pressure and unleashed threats when going on the counter-attack.

Antony proved worthy of his £85m transfer after he opened the scoring on his debut for the Old Trafford club. That would have been an equalizer if Martinelli’s goal was not ruled out after the VAR check. Saka had set up the 21-year-old Brazilian forward, who sped up and fired into the net. The goal was ruled out after VAR confirmed a foul by Odegaard on Christian Eriksen in the build-up to the goal.
