Arsenal vs Man Utd LIVE: Latest updates from Premier League match


ARSENAL and Man Utd are embroiled in a frantic clash at the Emirates.

Nuno Tavares gave Arsenal a dream start against Man Utd as he took advantage of some shambolic defending.

Eddie Nketiah then thought he’d doubled Arsenal’s lead, but the goal was ruled out for offside.

But it the Gunners did get a second from the same incident, as the footage of the offside showed Alex Telles had committed a foul, leaving Bukayo Saka to score the resulting penalty.

However, Cristiano Ronaldo halved the deficit and emotionally pointed to the sky as he netted just days after losing his baby son.
