Solskjaer Suffers First Domestic Defeat As Arsenal Beats Man-U

SAN FRANCISCO, March 11, (THEWILL) – Arsenal seized the initiative in the race for the top four with a 2-0 victory over Manchester United that inflicted the first league defeat of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s tenure.

Granit Xhaka forced an uncharacteristic goalkeeping error from David de Gea as his swerving shot fired the Gunners in ahead inside 12 minutes before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s penalty made sure of the victory midway through the second half.

United hit the woodwork twice in the first half but there was a clear hangover from Wednesday’s Champions League heroics in Paris as they suffered their first Premier League defeat December 16.

Arsenal leapfrog United into fourth as a result of their ninth-successive home victory and move to within a point of third-place Tottenham as the top-four race intensified.
