Arsenal's good performance that yielded only one goal against Man Utd

The most anticipated game in history of Premier League 2017/18 season was played on Saturday evening.

This was the time where most football fans expected Arsenal to trash their long time rivals Manchester United at Emirates Stadium the fact that Gunners been premiering a good performance including the recent one where they whipped Huddersfield 5-0, a team that made things tight for Red Devils in this season.

Wenger's men did their best at home but hey, there was a man in the net of Man United to capture, save and even distract every shot on target that Alexandre Lacazette, Alexis Sanchez, Ozil and others would fire to United's goalkeeper David de Gea.

The Spanish born goalkeeper that made all the saves that counted to 14 saves against Arsenal, the joint-most by a goalkeeper in a single premier league match alongside Tim Krul & Vito Mannone.

Manchester United started the scoring spree at the 4th minute with a goal that came in from Antonio Valencia, then later sealed off the win by two goals that came from Jesse Lingard in the 11th and 63rd minute to make things look 3-1 in favor of Mourihno's men.

Arsenal's only goal in the match scored by Alexandre Lacazette in the 49th minute. However, the Gunners pulled off a better performance on the pitch with 75% ball possession, 33 shots, 15 shots on goal, 11 fouls, 12 corners, 0 red cards and 2 yellow cards.

Whereby the Red Devils made it with 25% ball possession,  8 shots, 4 shots on goal, 10 fouls, 1 corner, 2 yellow cards and one red card that was showed to Paul Pogba in the 74th minute of play.
