Due to two goals scored in stoppage time, Arsenal defeated Manchester United 3-1 in a spectacular turn of events at the Emirates.

After 27 minutes, a somewhat dull first half suddenly erupted into action as Marcus Rashford quickly took advantage of a United counterattack and decisively scored. Their advantage was transient, though, as Martin Odegaard soon made contact with Gabriel Martinelli and fired a potent shot to tie the game minutes later.

Early in the second half, controversy erupted as Arsenal thought they should have been awarded a penalty after Kai Havertz stumbled in the box. Anthony Taylor, the referee, initially pointed to the spot but changed his mind following a VAR review and a trip to the pitchside monitor.

Rasmus Hojlund made his long-awaited Manchester United debut in the second half. Bukayo Saka of Arsenal had a close-range opportunity, and Alejandro Garnacho of United’s late goal was disallowed for offside.

Declan Rice’s injury-time goal, which took a deflection and went in, sent the Emirates into a frenzy just as it looked like the game would end in a draw. A miraculous victory for Arsenal was then sealed by replacement Gabriel Jesus breaking away in a matter of moments.
