Manchester United winless home run in the Premier League extended as they were beaten 1-0 by Arsenal at Old Trafford. 

The Red Devils haven’t won a home game in the top flight since July 4 and were thoroughly second best as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s penalty secured all three points for Mikel Arteta’s side.

 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made three changes from the team that lined up against RB Leipzig in midweek, with Scott McTominay, Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes coming in for Nemanja Matic, Donny van de Beek and the suspended Anthony Martial.

 

Arsenal dominated the first half and almost took the lead when Willian hit the crossbar. Arteta will have been disappointed that his side didn’t lead at the break but they secured a deserved winner in the second half, with Aubeyamang scoring from the penalty spot after Paul Pogba’s clumsy foul on Hector Bellerin.
