Following this victory, they entered into the fifth round of the FA Cup for the third consecutive time. It was Unai Emery’s men who started the game on a brighter note and controlled for the first half an hour of the game.
The Red Devils needed one chance which was calmly converted by the former Gunners man Alexis Sanchez to drift the momentum towards the visitors. With the all energy towards their side, they hit Arsenal once again on the counter-attack with Romelu Lukaku registering his second assist of the game and the chance was slotted past Petr Cech by Jesse Lingard.
It looked like Arsenal were on the verge on comeback went their talisman Pierre Emerick Aubameyang pulled one back for the Gunners. They had a lot of chances in the second half, but failure to convert it came back to haunt them.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer decided to make two changes with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial coming on for the goalscorer Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku. When Unai Emery’s men were pushing for an equalizer, they were once again caught on the break.
Paul Pogba launched a shot which was stopped by the Arsenal shot-stopper, but the substitute Anthony Martial was there to tap the ball in from close range to restore the two-goal cushion in the second half.
Since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over Jose Mourinho in mid-December, he has not put a foot wrong, maintaining a 100% win record. The midfield has often not been rotated by the Norwegian which should come as a worrying part for the Old Trafford faithful.
In the hopes of strengthening their hand in finishing in the top four and landing a silverware, they have been linked with plenty of players in the January transfer market. But, CalcioMercato reported that the Red Devils are looking to make a late attempt to sign Cagliari midfielder Nicolo Barella who is reportedly said to leave the Italian outfit if any suitable offer arrives.
Manchester United will take on Burnley in the Premier League on Tuesday as they continue to push for Champions League qualification.
