Man United 0-1 Arsenal: Arsenal Keep Title Hopes Alive with Narrow Win Over Man United

by: EdwardB


Arsenal reignited their Premier League title aspirations with a hard-fought 0-1 victory over Man United at Old Trafford on May 12th. This crucial win puts them back at the top of the table, although Manchester City still holds the upper hand in the title race.

Arsenal Maintain Title Charge with Dominant Run

The Gunners have been in scintillating form this year, particularly since the turn of the year. Mikel Arteta’s men have been nearly unstoppable, winning 15 and drawing 1 of their last 17 league games. This relentless form has kept them firmly in the title race, despite a slightly underwhelming performance against a depleted Manchester United side.

Manchester United Struggles Continue

The Red Devils’ woes continued at Old Trafford, with Erik ten Hag’s men suffering another defeat. The 4-0 thrashing by Crystal Palace just days prior had intensified the scrutiny on the Dutch manager. While United showed more fight compared to the Palace collapse, they’ve only managed one win in their last eight Premier League matches. This latest setback further diminishes their hopes of securing a European spot next season.

Trossard’s Solitary Strike Makes the Difference

The opening 20 minutes saw United hold their ground against the free-scoring Gunners. However, a defensive lapse by Casemiro proved costly. The Brazilian midfielder’s poor positioning allowed Kai Havertz to play through on goal, and Leandro Trossard capitalized on the error, tapping in the German’s cross for the game’s only goal.

United Push But Fail to Find an Equalizer

Despite their struggles, Manchester United did manage to keep their home crowd engaged in the second half. They pressed for an equalizer, but a lack of quality in the final third hampered their efforts. Alejandro Garnacho came closest to scoring for United, but his best chance sailed just wide of the target.

Arsenal, on the other hand, sought a second goal to ease the pressure. Gabriel Martinelli and Declan Rice both had opportunities, but they were denied by impressive saves from Arsenal goalkeeper Andre Onana. With the score remaining 1-0, the final minutes became tense, with Arsenal desperate to see out the win.

Title Race Goes Down to the Wire

This crucial victory propels Arsenal back to the top of the Premier League table, one point ahead of Manchester City. However, Pep Guardiola’s side still control their destiny. With two games remaining compared to Arsenal’s one, City can secure the title with victories in their upcoming matches. Nevertheless, Arsenal have thrown the gauntlet down, putting significant pressure on the Citizens in the final stretch of the season.
