Arsenal beat Manchester United and keep the pressure up on city rivals City – Dagsavisen

Martin Ødegaard’s side continue to do the job themselves in the hunt for their first Premier League title in 20 years, but Manchester City have everything in their own hands and can win their fourth straight league trophy.

The London club had to struggle more than many expected before the match. Manchester United had several good counterattacking opportunities in the 2nd half, but without complete success in the rain.

The light blues have won five of the last six. Arsenal have one more point and one game to go, while City have two remaining fixtures.

Next week they will face Tottenham (b) and West Ham (h), while Everton await in Arsenal’s last game.

Towards nightmare season

Away victories at Old Trafford in a league context are not common fare for Arsenal, who have struggled greatly on the Manchester turf since the turn of the millennium. They have won only two of the last 17 away meetings with United in the PL.

United went their third straight game without a win after losing badly to Crystal Palace in the last round. The Red Devils are heading for their worst season in the Premier League era (since 1992).

United will face Newcastle and Brighton in the last two games and are dependent on Chelsea stumbling for it not to strike.
