Arsenal Creates 7 Records in Big Win Over Manchester United

By Olamide Oyetunji - The Super Sunday in the English Premier League provided unlimited entertainment as the Londoners went to the den of the Red Devils.

Arsenal delivered a superlative performance to beat Manchester United at Old Trafford for the first time in the post era of Sir Alex Ferguson as Manchester United manager.

The Gunners were brilliant from start to finish, especially with their incredible defending in the last ten minutes and Gabriel Maghalhaes handling the defence well while the combination of Mohamed Elneny and Thomas Partey enjoying the party in the midfield.

Skipper Pierre Emerick Aubameyang netted the lone goal from the spot on 69th minute to give Mikel Arteta side the 1-0 win against a motivated Manchester United side that was on a good run of form.

The result came with some special records well verified by Statistics and Football Data Platforms.

1 - Arsenal have won away at a “big six” side in the Premier League for the first time since a 2-0 win against Manchester City in January 2015, ending their 29-game winless run (D10 L19).

2 - Manchester United have failed to win any of their opening four top-flight games at Old Trafford for the first time since 1972-73, a campaign in which they finished 18th.

3 - Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the first Arsenal player to score a penalty at Old Trafford in the Premier League, with neither of the previous two attempts being converted (Robin Van Persie in 2011 and Gilberto Silva in 2006).

4- Manchester United have conceded five penalties in their last seven Premier League home games; the previous five penalties they had conceded at Old Trafford in the competition came over a period of 101 games.

5 - Paul Pogba has conceded three penalties in the Premier League under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, while no other Manchester United player has conceded more than one.

6 - Manchester United have taken just seven points from their six Premier League games this season, their lowest tally at this stage since David Moyes' short stint at the helm in 2013-14 (7); a campaign in which they went on to finish seventh.

7 - Manchester United have lost at home against Arsenal in the Premier League for the first time since September 2006, ending an unbeaten home run of 13 games against the Gunners (W8 D5).
