Arsenal beats Man United 2-0 to go 4th in Premier League

10 Mars 2019

Arsenal made the ideal start Thursday, March 7 night through Alex Iwobi's fourth minute goal, but capitulated after the sending off of Sokratis Papastathopoulos and must now overturn a 3-1 first leg deficit to reach the Europa League quarter finals.

"Football goes on, we're going to try to raise our heads to finish the season".

To say that fans read into Phelan's tweet on Sunday would be an understatement. "Spineless" and "Respect us" in reference to their supporters were found at Camp de Loges.

FW Romelu Lukaku, 6 - His general play was good but he should have scored with at least one of the three chances he had.

It will have been a case of Solskjaer saying in the dressing room before the game, 'right lads, you four and you four do the donkey work in midfield and defence and those two will win the game for us.

"Not a good experience today, because we couldn't do our work in hard moments, in hard minutes, with one less player, like we wanted".

"I enjoy it when I'm here", insisted the Treble hero.

Meanwhile, Mourinho continues to be linked with a return to Real Madrid following the Blancos' elimination from the Champions League. I'm pretty sure it's been the same with everyone. The former late-game magician has won 14 of his 17 matches in charge of United and beat Arsenal 3-1 at the Emirates in January, hopeful he can pull off a domestic double over the Gunners in the space of six weeks.

For Solskjaer, whose side delivered heroics with a 3-1 Champions League win at Paris Saint Germain in midweek, this was his first taste of domestic defeat since being appointed caretaker manager in December and ended a club-record run of nine away wins. Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera have also returned to training but match fitness remains an issue for the duo.

"I made a mistake against Tottenham and I missed it, but today I was focused and scored a penalty", Aubameyang said. "We can go all the way, but we just have to wait for the draw and then take the game as it comes", said Solskjaer.

"I am Parisien. If I had not been a football player, or unable to be on the pitch on Wednesday, I would have been in the stands or in the Auteuil end to support the team", he added. But I came back the next morning with a big spirit, with a big confidence for Sunday first and also for this week.

"Of course, with the VAR there, yes, (I wouldn't have been sent off). It is a match that will inevitably stay in our minds, but we will have to forget for the rest of the season".
