On Sunday, Arsenal beat rivals Manchester United’s 2-0 to end the latter’s 25-match unbeaten run in the Premier League and kept up their hopes of securing a place in the top four.

Granit Xhaka opened the scoring after a largely uneventful first half, with a deflected shot from distance, which looped over goalkeeper David de Gea.

They doubled their lead three minutes later when Danny Welbeck headed home against his former club after a pinpoint cross from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Manchester United brought in Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard as replacements to try to rescue the game, but they failed to bring the visitors to life.

The result means Arsenal remain in sixth place but are two points off United in fifth and six points off Manchester City in fourth, with a game in hand over both teams.
