Man United, Arsenal Play Out Thrilling 2-2 Draw

Man United, Arsenal Play Out Thrilling 2-2 Draw

by | 6th December 2018

Manchester United twice came from a goal behind to draw 2-2 with Arsenal on Wednesday and deny the visitors a first win in 12 Premier League games at Old Trafford.

 

Goalkeeper David de Gea made an uncharacteristic error as he failed to deal with Shkodran Mustafi‘s tame 26th-minute header, which Ander Herrera could not clear before it crossed the line.

 

Anthony Martial levelled four minutes later, tapping home after Marcos Rojo‘s free kick was well-saved by keeper Bernd Leno but Herrera, who had looked offside, kept the ball alive and squared for the Frenchman.

 

Substitute Alexandre Lacazette scrambled Arsenal back in front after 68 minutes but United were on terms once more within seconds as Jesse Lingard pounced on Sead Kolasinac‘s attempted backpass.

 

De Gea redeemed himself with a succession of fine saves as both sides had to content themselves with a point, with United now eighth in the Premier League and Arsenal, who extended their unbeaten run this season to 20 games, dropping to fifth.
