Marcus Rashford came back in the starting lineup of the Red Devils after coming back from an injury. However, their star right-back Aaron Wan Bissaka was not in the squad due to an injury problem. On the other hand, the Gunners almost got all their players except Alexandre Lacazette. The first half of the match was not much entertaining. The referee had to 4 yellow cards in the first half of the match.

In the second half, the Gunners tried hard to equalise the scoreline. Unai Emery brought in Dani Ceballos in place of Lucas Torreira. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang equalised the scoreline for the Gunners at the 58th minute of the match. The goal was not given at first as the linesman showed the offside flag.

However, Aubameyang was clearly onside and after VAR intervention, the goal was given. After getting the equaliser, Unai Emery’s team again went defensive. On the other hand, Manchester United’s attacks were also not very much clinical. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer brought in Mason Greenwood and Fred in place of Jesse Lingard and Andreas Pereira.

However, the attacks of Manchester United were not very much direct and the defenders of Arsenal easily saw the danger out in the last 10 minutes. It was a tactical game overall and no side went for three points at the end. So, the scoreline of 1-1 had been perfectly suggesting the way the game was played.

After the match, Unai Emery said that they deserved a win. However, it was not seeming that his team was playing for a win. It was Pierre Emerick Aubameyang for whom Arsenal are coming back with a point from Old Trafford.
