Neville sends essential warning to Man Utd over testing interval

The Gunners beat Manchester United 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, handing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer his first league defeat as the Red Devils manager, and leapfrogging their opponents into the Champions League qualification places in the process.

It means he'd be officially their manager by the time they next kick a ball in the Premier League, against Watford on March 30.

It wasn't a ideal performance by any means, but like Tottenham last week, we again looked solid and the players again showed the necessary fight required as we go for the top 4.

A Granit Xhaka strike and an Aubameyang penalty saw Arsenal end Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's unbeaten 12-game domestic streak since taking caretaker charge at Old Trafford in December. Today is of course the lowest we've been and we lost a chance to really put pressure on Tottenham Hotspurs but we're still in the fight.

And not to mention the fact that Arsenal have now moved over Man United to sit on the fourth spot on the league table.

"The week after they do what they did in Paris, and even so, [Romelu] Lukaku not great, [Marcus] Rashford wasn't himself, I don't think [Paul] Pogba took control of the game in the way you expect him to, nor did [Nemanja] Matic and David De Gea wasn't himself either".

"There are still eight games, and we want to win every game but we have to focus on each one because the other teams will wait for small mistakes". "We are happy to win and it was very important if you see the results from Tottenham and Chelsea", Granit told We created big chances and hit the woodwork twice.

The Gunners' boss said: "I don't know if this is our best performance this season".

Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno admits they were inspired to seek revenge on Manchester United by Jesse Lingard's celebrations in the FA Cup clash last month. "This game was a six pointer and we don't have a lot of games left, but we need the points to be in the top four". "I am pleased to play for Arsenal and I want to give the club and the team something back with my performances".
