Good performance from Jose Mourinho’s side. Manchester United took advantage of Arsenal individuals’ mistakes in the first 15 minutes and scored twice, which gave Manchester United an advantage in the whole match.
Three important points for the Red Devils to stay in the title race and as the main competitor for Manchester City for the Premier League title until now.
However, Manchester United will miss one of their most important players, Paul Pogba, against Manchester City in the Manchester Derby due to a red card. Knowing that this red card may cause Paul Pogba to miss other matches as well because he got a direct red card.
Our players’ ratings are as the following:
De Gea: world-class save on the 45th minute, Lukaku’s own goal, and Sanchez attempt. 7/10
Smalling: Defended well against Arsenal’s attempts. 7/10
Lindelof: Good match Nothing much to do anyway. 7/10
Marcos Rojo: Good match, but has to be careful with his fouls, especially near the penalty area. Booked. 6/10
Young: Nothing much to do, but defended well and did his best. 7/10
Valencia: The captain scored today and had a good match. 7/10
Matic: Was he really injured? Amazing performance from Matic. 8/10
Pogba: Always dangerous and creating spaces, and assisted the first and third goals. He was the man behind most of Man United’s counter attacks and attacks. However, received a silly red card that will make Manchester United play without him in the most important match of the season, against Manchester City. 7/10
Lingard: Two goals and amazing performance for the second week in a row. 8/10
Martial: He is proving himself in the starting Xl and got a goal. Amazing performance. 8/10
Lukaku: A good match and an assist, even though he didn’t’ score. 7/10
Herrera: replaced Martial to adds a defense layer and maintain the score. 6/10
Darmian: Came to defend instead of Lingard in the last 15 minutes. 5/10
Rashford: No time to impress, just came in to waste time. N/A
Man of the match: Even though Paul Pogba didn’t’ score, but he was the best and behind most of the Man United’s attacks. However, he got a silly red card that will make Manchester United miss one of their most important players against Manchester City. I think Lingard and Pogba both deserve it.
Jose Mourinho (Manager): A good match against Arsene Wenger and Arsenal, three important points. However, he has hard work to do ahead of Manchester City match without Paul Pogba. 7/10
