Arsenal – Manchester United: In form, the Gunners confirm their success against Chelsea

Manchester United faller, Arsenal concludes its dream week in style. Three days after the demonstration served at Stamford Bridge, the Gunners broke Manchester United on Saturday at the Emirates Stadium, on behalf of the 34th day (3-1). Very quickly in the lead thanks to the achievements of Nuno Tavares (5th) and Bukayo Saka from the penalty spot (32nd), the London club was surprised before the break by Cristiano Ronaldo (34th), author of his 100th in the Premier League. After a slump in the second half, Granit Xhaka (70th) propelled the locals to the Top 4 (4th, 60 points), far from the Red Devils (6th, 54 points), who may have toasted their last joker.

Ronaldo scorer but not savior

Woe to the loser. The shock of the 34th day offered a duel at loggerheads between two teams stuck in an arduous schedule. As at Anfield, the stands interrupted their singing to applaud Cristiano Ronaldo in the seventh minute, back after a family drama. But as with the Scousers, the number seven of the Red Devils could only see the delay of his team, led after five short minutes of play. Hyperactive, Nuno Tavares followed an attempt by Bukayo Saka to open the scoring and his personal counter. in the Premier League (5th). Back in the central hinge of the Red Devils, Raphaël Varane is involved in the first goal and lacked accuracy in his placement and his interventions.

Despite big scares on the raise (11th) as well as on attempts by Anthony Elanga (15th) and Diogo Dalot (24th), Arsenal pushed when necessary. A few minutes after a face-to-face missed by Eddie Nketiah (25th), Bukayo Saka coldly converted a penalty (32nd) following a foul by Alex Telles on the Englishman. A penalty granted by the VAR which previously canceled a goal scored by Nketiah after a discount from…Saka. But no time to breathe since a man had wounds to heal. Precise in his one-touch play, often just in his intentions, Ronaldo took advantage of an excellent center from Nemanja Matic to beat Aaron Ramsdale closely and reach the bar of 100 achievements in the English championship (34th).

This time, the presence of the fivefold Ballon d’Or was not enough to turn the game around. Who knows, if the Portuguese was responsible for taking this penalty awarded to the Mancunians following a hand from Tavares on a header from Matic (55th). Accustomed to the exercise, Bruno Fernandes did not want to delegate, and broke down in front of his attempt repelled by the outside post of Ramsdale (57th). Paradoxically, this failure has awakened the very moribund Red Devils since the return from the locker room. Perfectly offset by Ronaldo, Dalot touched his second amount of the day (63rd).

While we felt the Gunners trapped in their camp, unable to stop the opposing advances, the Londoners suddenly found a second wind. After a long streak around the Mancunian area, Xhaka catapulted a ball scraped by Mohamed Elneny into the feet of … Fernandes out of reach of David de Gea (70th). A pure shot fired at twenty-five meters as a start for the uninhibited Gunners and in a good position for an upcoming participation in the Champions League (4th, 60 points).

A scene that the Red Devils are likely to miss (6th, 54 points), weighed down by a catastrophic balance sheet outside. With four setbacks in a row outside its bases, you have to go back 41 years to find traces of such a poor performance (1981).
