Mikel Arteta’s Gunners suffered a difficult night as they lost 3-2 to Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Arsenal took a controversial lead through Emile Smith Rowe’s strike after David de Gea went down injured from a free-kick after 13 minutes – but the decision to award the goal has been praised by a top referee following the incident.

United equalised just before intermission through Bruno Fernandes, and took the lead shortly thereafter when Cristiano Ronaldo swept it into the bottom corner with an excellent first-time finish.

Martin Odegaard quickly brought the Gunners down to their level as he brought home Gabriel Martinelli’s cross.

Odegaard’s foul on Fred led to a penalty that Ronaldo won.

This is a great moment for Arteta, who is being praised by the club for his efforts at the club.
