Manchester United suffer first domestic defeat under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Arsenal move above Man Utd as Solskjaer suffers first league defeat

Arsenal move above Man Utd as Solskjaer suffers first league defeat

The United midfielder made only the slightest contact with Lacazette as he lent into the France striker, who immediately tumbled to the turf.

A goal from Granit Xhaka and a second half penalty from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were enough to separate the sides in an entertaining fixture at the Emirates Stadium.

De Gea's failure to stop Xhaka's swinging, long-range effort led to a mocking response from fans on social media.

"David (de Gea) is disappointed every time he concedes a goal. The ball moves so unusual and it looks like it goes to David's left and it changed direction", he said.

Exiting the Europa League could be a positive in terms of workload, and it looks a fairly likely outcome after the 3-1 reverse in Rennes.

Solskjaer admitted United's tame opening may have been in part caused by fatigue after their European heroics.

"When you see the boys work as hard as they do, the attitude they show in training - today we were lethargic in the first 10-15 minutes, did not have the zip and we did not take the chances".

Theresa May wins Brexit assurances from European Union on eve of crucial vote
Mrs May has so far given no indication which way she would vote or whether Tory MPs would be whipped to back the Government line. But Mrs May's official spokesman confirmed it remains the plan to stage the "meaningful vote" on the Brexit deal on Tuesday.

"We have won games we have not deserved to win, and today we lost a game we did not deserve to lose". We created five big chances, hit the woodwork twice.

The victory saw Arsenal go above United and occupy fourth place in the table.

The Gunners are two points ahead of United and only one point behind third placed Tottenham, with sixth placed Chelsea three points adrift of the top four with a game in hand.

"The way that Ole is asking them to play, they can't cope with it physically some of the players because they are being asked to run a lot further than they were previously".

"We just had to go for it towards the end, but we were not really at it and it is one of those days where you have to dust yourselves down from", said Solskjaer after the match.

Spanish boss Unai Emery took over Arsenal in the summer, replacing Arsene Wenger who had been in charge for 22 years.

"Being competitive like today for 90 minutes can give us a stronger mentality".
