At Emirates Stadium, Arsenal was the team that controlled the game better. They know how to push back the Manchester United defense, forcing their opponents to focus on defense.
However, it was Man Utd who took the lead. In the 27th minute, Christian Eriksen launched a high-class pass to help Marcus Rashford escape down the left wing. Rashford cut into the middle before finishing to beat Aaron Ramsdale.
Witnessing Man Utd’s opening goal, Gary Neville instead of praising Rashford criticized two Arsenal names. According to Neville, Kai Havertz was the one who made a mistake when he made a judgment ‘German player makes a sloppy pass‘ help Eriksen organize a counterattack.
In addition, the former English football player also took aim at Ben White when he said:
“Ben White should have come closer and he paid the price“.
The match was even more dramatic because Martin Odegaard quickly brought the match back to the starting line in the 28th minute. The goals kept coming, making the confrontation at Emirates Stadium unpredictable and tense.
