Eddie Nketiah wins spectacular winner of thrilling Premier League classic
It looked like the honor would come to an end even after United endured a late siege, but Nketiah took advantage from close range to thrill the home fans.
A match that lived up to expectations saw Marcus Rashford put United ahead with an excellent opener, only for Nketiah to level Arsenal in a frantic first half.
Bukayo Saka’s lightning drive gave Arsenal the lead in the 53rd minute, but Lisandro Martinez’s header equalized before the hour mark and made for a thrilling final.
Saka hit the post and Nketiah was denied by David de Gea, but the hosts were ruthless as they avenged their loss to United earlier this season – their only defeat.
Mikel Arteta’s side have 50 points from 19 games with City on 45 and United fourth on 39, below Newcastle United on goal difference.
