    Mid table, with a negative goal difference.

    Shame.

    Well done Arsenal , Football 3 v 1 Anti Football .

    Other than long diagonals to utilize Rashford's pace that's all Utd have & Casemiro is blowing out of his arse after 80 mins of every match .

    £105 million Rice , that's a bit paid back .

    Deserved Arsenal win in the end, United faded in the last 5 minutes just as they did last season, looking to hold onto a point and ending with nothing. Ten Hag's appalling away record continues, great to see Johnny Evans back, it's been years since he's been able to concoct an opposition goal out of nothing but it was like he's never been away.

    :laugh:

    Deserved win. Arsenal prove they might still have a title challenge in them, as opposed to joining the pack. They still weren't even that great at times today.

    United are a terrible team. That keeper is proving to be utterly pointless beyond stat packing his passes. They're genuinely lucky to have 6 points on the board.

    Also shout out to the commentary desperate for the spotty striker to make a difference. Did he even have a shot? lol. A keeper who cannot make a save and a striker who doesn't have any chances.

    Fair enough , just a different prick.

    United all them chances , Rashford a greedy **** and their away form against top 10 is a major issue.

    At what point is Ten Haag's future at the club going to be questioned? He's as much of a non-entity as his football.

    Man Utd finishing the game with CBs they were either trying to get rid of all summer, or got rid of 8 years ago.

    Deservedly beaten, Rashford's goal was class but the only meaningful moment we produced. Didn't think much of Arsenal in the first half but they came back into it in the second and took control late on against our clowns at the back.

    Used to be your keeper taking more touches than your forwards was a bad thing.

    His reign is going the exact way of their last Dutch manager LVG. Like in his final season, I'm struggling to see United having enough to finish top 4 this time around.

    What a player Rice is though. He's so imposing in the midfield. Doesn't shy away from the game.

    Interesting that Arsenal have twice now benefitted from their players purposely blocking the opposition at set pieces with no interest in the ball. The Rice goal today with Gabriel and Partey purposely blocking a Palace defender from an indirect free-kick leading to a penalty given on the free runner. Both checked by VAR both deemed ok, in open play its given as a foul every time.

    I wonder if refs will start clamping down on the intent of it as the season goes on?
