Arsenal’s 3-2 triumph over Manchester United in the Premier League championship battle was achieved by Eddie Nketiah’s 90th-minute goal, extending the winners undefeated record in the league to 13 games.
With Manchester City, who beat Wolves 3-0 earlier in the day to close the gap at the top of the league to two points, hot on Arsenal’s tail, every game between now and the conclusion of the season is critical to the Gunners’ prospects of winning the Premier League for the first time in 19 years.
United, on the other hand, came into the game on the back of an unbeaten ten-game run, winning nine of them, and appeared ready to battle.
Bukayo Saka, like his Three Lions teammate Marcus Rashford, gave the goalkeeper no chance with his frightening drive, becoming only the third Arsenal player to score in three successive league games against the 20-time champions. Saka’s deflected drive struck the post, and Nketiah forced De Gea with an excellent save as it appeared United would hold firm. However, with fewer than 60 seconds remaining in regular time, Nketiah poked home at the back post to secure a crucial three points. Mikel Arteta’s chances of winning the championship continue to improve, with a five-point advantage at the top of the table and a game in hand.
