Manchester United 0-1 Arsenal as Gunners reclaim top spot

The Premier League title race intensifies as Arsenal clinched a vital 1-0 victory against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday, setting the stage for a dramatic finale on the last day of the season.

With this win, the Gunners have surged ahead of Manchester City, reclaiming the top spot by a narrow margin and holding a slightly superior goal difference.

Manchester City could reclaim the lead by defeating Arsenal’s rivals, Tottenham Hotspur, on Tuesday. However, Mikel Arteta’s squad has ensured that the English crown remains within their grasp as the season draws to a close.

However, it was Arsenal who broke the deadlock midway through the first half. A defensive lapse by Casemiro allowed Kai Havertz to deliver a precise cross for Leandro Trossard, who finished calmly from close range, beating Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Although United enjoyed more possession, they struggled to create clear chances. Arsenal remained dangerous on the counter, with Ben White threatening Onana’s goal.

The second half saw few moments of quality, with Declan Rice’s shot blocked and Martin Odegaard’s effort comfortably saved by Onana.

United’s attempts to equalize fell short, with Alejandro Garnacho firing into the side-netting after creating space against Ben White.

Arsenal had opportunities to extend their lead, with Gabriel Martinelli forcing a save from Onana and the goalkeeper denying Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s header from a corner.

Despite a late surge from United, Arsenal held on to secure a crucial victory, maintaining their position at the top of the table.
