Arsenal’s kept their slim hopes of a top-four finish alive courtesy of a 2-0 home win against Manchester United at the Emirates on Sunday.
The first-half was a largely dull affair, with United sitting back and hoping to catch the Gunners on the break. Although both Petr Cech and David De Gea were forced into a couple of good saves.
However, after the break, the hosts took the lead on 54 minutes, with Granit Xhaka’s long-range deflected effort looping in over David De Gea.
Soon after, the Gunners were 2-0 up, with ex-United striker heading in off the crossbar from a superb Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain cross.
Jose Mourinho put on Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard to get something out of the game, but ultimately the visitors would end the game on the wrong end of a 2-0 defeat.
Despite having his eye on next week’s Europa League semi-final second-leg clash with Celta Vigo, Jose Mourinho will still be disappointed to see his side’s 25-game unbeaten run come to an end.
On the other hand, Arsene Wenger will be delighted to enjoy his first league win against Mourinho.
Manchester stay fifth, four points behind Man City in fourth while Arsenal are two points further back with a game in hand.
