Cristiano Ronaldo dedicates 100th Premier League goal to his baby boy, Arsenal fans pay TRIBUTE in the 7th minute – Watch video

This win sends Arsenal above Tottenham and into fourth position, but Spurs play later on today and have a slightly better goal difference so things could change. Next up for the Gunners is a trip to West Ham. Meanwhile United remain sixth, six points off fourth spot and next up for them is a game against Chelsea in midweek.

Premier League Highlights: Goals from Saka, Tavares and Xhaka help Arsenal seal a 3-1 win

  • Tavares put Arsenal ahead after just three minutes
  • Saka converted from the spot to make it 2-0
  • Cristiano Ronaldo pulled one back to make it 2-1 at the break.
  • Bruno Fernandes missed his crucial penalty kick
  • Ramsdale then pulled off a superb save to deny Dalot at his near post, pushing the ball onto the post.
  • Xhaka made it 3-1 on 70 minutes with a superb strike from outside the box, wrapping up the three points

United travelled to the Emirates hoping for a response to their 4-0 humiliation by Liverpool and, although their general display was improved, defensively they were unconvincing again.

Nuno Tavares had Arsenal in front early on and a Bukayo Saka penalty made it 2-0 just before Cristiano Ronaldo netted his 100th Premier League goal – though that was just the tip of the iceberg amid an entertaining first half.

Premier League Highlights: Gunners lead the Top-4 race

The visitors began the second period well and somehow failed to equalise, with Bruno Fernandes missing a penalty and Diogo Dalot hitting the post, with Granit Xhaka’s piledriver then dealing the hammer blow.

United made another slow start as Saka tested David de Gea after two defenders missed the ball and Tavares tapped in the rebound for a third-minute lead.

The response from United was purposeful. They created several chances, hit the crossbar from range via Dalot and were controversially denied a penalty when Cedric Soares handled in the box. But Arsenal then increased their lead just past the half-hour.

Eddie Nketiah had a goal disallowed for offside, yet Alex Telles was deemed to have fouled Saka just prior in the same VAR check and the winger converted the resulting penalty. United swiftly pulled one back, Ronaldo expertly turning in Nemanja Matic’s wonderful curling cross.

They spurned an opportunity to draw level from the spot, though, as Fernandes hit his kick against the post early in the second half – Ronaldo then had a second goal disallowed for a marginal offside.

Dalot struck the goal frame again with United’s next attack and Arsenal capitalised on the profligacy in the 70th minute when Xhaka blasted past De Gea from 30 yards to seal victory.
