Mikel Arteta’s guns won (0-1) at the Theatre of Dreams, putting Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s charges on the witches’ train: United are now fifteenth, five points behind Europe, six points behind the Champions League and seven points behind the leaders. His seven points in six days equal the worst start in the Premier League, which looked in solitary David Moyes from 2013-14 until now. Since 1972-73 they did not start without winning any of their first four league matches at home. Terrific.
Arsenal takes the elevator to the top with a prestigious victory. Arteta has won his two duels against Solskjaer, who embitter in his 100th match. Since January 2015 (0-2 against City) they have not beaten a ‘big six’ team outside. They did it in the Teatro de Los Sueños finishing with 29 consecutive slips before the big ones (10 draws and 19 defeats) and giving continuity to the change of mentality and soccer that they are experiencing with the Spanish. Since 2006 they failed in the Teatro de Los Suelos. Goodbye to the curse for double.
Neither ‘gunners’ nor ‘red devils’ shone under the rain of Manchester. The United, predictable in the elaboration, was stuck before an Arsenal that did not run all that it wanted. Willian, with a cut to the crossbar, warned before the rest. The duel blocked, pasty, and they broke it the 11 meters. Pogba fell into Bellerin’s trap, and Arsenal took all the candy.
United and Pogba fail to wake up from the nightmare of the penalty shootout. The Frenchman has made three Premier League appearances for Solskjaer, and the ‘red devils’ have suffered five in their last seven league games at Old Trafford. A sentence that sunk them before an Arsenal that resisted the local onslaught. Cavani and Van de Beek went in, and the Dutchman hit the post. They were unable to open Leno’s lock. They stayed out of the Premier’s party for now.
