Arsenal win vs Man Utd end Old Trafford hoodoo

Arsenal end Old Trafford hoodoo as Manchester United set new unwanted record with defeat

November 1, 2020 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The Gunners put an end to their dry away spell to grab their first win over the Red Devils in 14 years.

Arsenal have successfully defeated Manchester United at Old Trafford for the first time since 2006. The Gunners staged a commanding performance to run away with a 1-0 win as the Red Devils recorded their worst-ever home record in the start of the season in its history.

After defeating RB Leipzig via an emphatic 5-0 scoreline in the Champions League in midweek, there were high expectations for Manchester United to finally get successive wins at Old Trafford when Arsenal came to town. However, a different story unfolded as Mikel Arteta's men added to their impressive start to the new Premier League season with yet another win.

Having squandered a number of goal scoring opportunities in the first half, Arsenal's breakthrough finally came inside the 69th minute after Paul Pogba fouled Hector Bellerin inside United's penalty area. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang subsequently stepped up from 12 yards to send David de Gea the wrong way and seal his side's fate.

In effect, Arsenal secured their first three points at Old Trafford for the first time since 2006 when a lone goal by Emmanuel Adebayor fired them to victory over Sir Alex Ferguson's side. In addition, Mikel Arteta has become the first Arsenal manager to win his first two games against Manchester United since 1924. 

Meanwhile, the struggles of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side keeps persisting as for the first time in the history of the club, they have been unable to win just one point from their first four home appearances. The Old Trafford outfit has so far accrued seven points from six games - their worst start to a season since 1972.

United currently sit in 15th place after six games, marking their lowest league position after six games in the Premier League era. The Red Devils' goal difference of eight at home after four games is their worst-ever at home at this stage of season.
