Man Utd 0-1 Arsenal: Leandro Trossard’s goal moves Gunners back to the top of the Premier League

Trossard Odegaard

Leandro Trossard’s early goal from Kai Havertz’s right-wing cross put the Gunners ahead and though Erik ten Hag’s injury-hit United pushed hard for the equaliser, it would not come as Mikel Arteta’s team claimed their 18th clean sheet of this league season.

The three points move them back one point ahead of reigning champions Manchester City who have a game in hand – to be played at Tottenham on Tuesday, live on Sky Sports. Whatever happens in midweek, the Premier League title race will now go to the last day of the season.

“We really wanted to knock that door and open that box of dreams to live the last day of the season in front of our people with the opportunity to win the Premier League,” Arteta said after the game.

On the day that Manchester United’s women’s team won the FA Cup at Wembley, the struggles of the men’s team continued. This defeat means that they remain three points behind Newcastle and Chelsea in eighth, their hopes of Europe now slim.
