52' SHOT!
Arsenal hunting a third goal. Saka tries his luck from 30 yards but it sails high and over the crossbar.
48' WILD!
Arsenal move the ball excellently to Tavares who cuts inside to open up a chance from 15 yards. His finish is woeful. Ballooned into the stands.

H-T Arsenal 2-1 Man Utd
45+4' SAVE!!
Arsenal counter. Odegaard moves into space from 22 yards and curls an effort on target but it's straight at De Gea, who decides to punch it away and Tavares comes in from 15 yards on the rebound. He thunders it over the crossbar.
45+2' SAVE!!
Telles now decides to chance his luck from range and hits a fantastic strike that Ramsdale flaps away. Cedric then in rather panicky fashion shanks a clearance out for a corner.
45' Arsenal 2-1 Man Utd
5' added on.

The goal is ruled out. But now VAR are checking for the penalty! Was Saka fouled by Telles?
26' GOAL! Arsenal 2-0 Man Utd (Nketiah, 26')

Dangerous free-kick for the Gunners with both Cedric and Odegaard standing over it…
15' Brilliant again from Ronaldo to combine with Elanga and send him through with Tavares wrestling with him to get back.

Elanga looks to have the pace to get away before he hits the deck inside the area claiming a foul but nothing given!
11' Attempt missed.
Scott McTominay header from the right side of the six yard box is high and wide to the right.
United counter. Elanga is sent in behind Gabriel and has the pace on him. Out comes Ramsdale to meet him and he stands tall before making a fine stop to push it out for a corner.
