Arsenal defeated Manchester United in a Premier League match at Old Trafford on Sunday evening, the first time they have done so since 2006.

Aubameyang’s lone strike was enough to sink United at Ole Gunnar Solskjær’ 100th match in charge.

The match which was a tactical masterclass Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta saw him rolled out a team with two changes from the last weekend’s defeat to Leicester: Mohamed Elneny and Willian came in for David Luiz and Granit Xhaka in what was a 3-4-3 to United’s 4-4-2.

United lag in the 15th position on the Premiership table, picking only one point from the last four home games in the league.
