Eddie Nketiah seals all three points with last minute winner (including video)

Arsenal have stolen all three points with a last minute winner against Manchester United, with Eddie Nketiah grabbing the winner.

It was a hotly contested matchup, with Marcus Rashford’s strike putting us on the backfoot early on, but we were not going to give in so easy. Less than 10 minutes later, young Eddie had fired us level with his headed effort, and we continued to try and push on after.

We went into the break level, but it wasn’t long into the new half when Bukayo Saka put us ahead for the first time. Lisandro Martinez quickly found their equaliser however, but despite all their efforts, Nketiah came up with a winner at the death.

It feels a little too hard not to be getting excited about our title credentials now, doesn’t it?

  1. What a game. Man United played openly and Arsenal showed the mentality of champions by scoring two goals after being conceded first

    Nketiah was my MOTM for his great finishes, followed by Zinchenko for his great playmaking abilities and Saka for his goal. Both Nketiah and Saka were unlucky to not score two goals

    1. @Gai. Zolinchenko pull the strings today. We rate odegaard but zinchenko was outstanding today. It’s a very different dynamics to see a fullback tuck into the middle instead of go down the flanks. Great win today.

    2. Nketiah did score 2 goals. Agree with you What a Game.
      This time I think I got the scoreline right on the predictions. Only I think I got the rest of the predictions wrong.
      Half way point with 50 points. Great day to be a gooner.

      1. Yeah, I was also amazed by Zinchenko’s performance today

        Partey made several mistakes, but none of them was fatal. I believe we would’ve played worse without him, because Zinchenko and he were the ones who got us out from tight spaces

  2. Great win today. The team put in an outstanding performance to take the victory. Such a good game of football by both teams today. Coyg

  3. It’s Nketiaaaaahhhh hahaha. I never doubted this guy since his academy days and I knew he’d come good way before he was even starting last season. Arsenal have already won the 2022/23 EPL. It is a done deal and in the realms Arsenal are celebrating while City look on. This match is a classic just like the Leeds match. Those are the kind of matches that will playback when we lift the trophy. They will be part of the highlights of the campaign.

      1. I’m speaking from a spiritual perspective. I’m an engineer so I just don’t be talking trash you know hahaha. I am telling you Arsenal will win it and this time I’m not going back on my word. I can be seen as dumb, stupid and whatever but I don’t care. We haven’t won it in 18years so I’m not guessing. We will be back here in May celebrating.

          1. It’s not a prediction. If it was I’d have said so. In the spiritual realms Arsenal were celebrating and City were disappointed. You can choose not to believe as its not by force but I don’t care what anyone thinks. I’ll be back here in May celebrating the EPL after many years of waiting. Its a free world and I know who I am so I won’t let anyone belittle me at all.

          2. I will not waste my time to comment on the obvious again and will not read anything here. I will be back in May to join everyone in celebrations. There is no living human being that can change Arsenal winning the EPL. 2023 EPL Champions, see you in May.

            1. A spiritual person told me the same that arsenal will lift the trophy while mancity close will be disappointed. She said although there will come a time as season progress when we will almost lose hope, but arsenal will lift the trophy

  4. Fair play to Man. Utd for playing foorball, too. Great game,it could have gone either way, but I’m happy it went ours 😁

    1. United only had three or four chances and they managed to put two of them in the back of the net where Arsenal created so much more, we deserved to win today and we should of won at the old Trafford last time we met this season

  5. what a game of football and what a screamer by Saka, martinelli struggled a little bit cos Wan bissaka was a strong on their encounters, Trossard should have be in for him since the 70th minute

  6. Eddie had the two goals but only one MotM for me. Take a bow Zinchenko. What. A. Game.

    The drive to win in the last 15 was a thing of beauty.

  7. This is a team performance! I don’t care who the Man of the Match is. The togetherness and belief is unbelievable, as shown by the wave upon wave of attacking we put on show as we chased the winner. As a realist, I know this success won’t last forever. The most important thing is this current season – keep getting the wins and give City a run for their money.

    Glad we avoided a consecutive draw, remembering we played a draw against Newcastle. Had we played a draw, pundits like Neville would claim Arsenal have been found out by Newcastle and United, claiming teams only need to sit deep and play narrow, and encouraging other teams to copy the template.

  8. We handled the pressure!! Credit to man Utd for making it a difficult game but we are the mighty Arsenal. Big up Saka and Eddie, Hale end boys doing their thing💪🏾

    Now time for a little laugh, I am listening to Radio 5 live and a salty Man Utd fan called up and said that it is a conspiracy that we are Premier League leaders, claiming that Trossard was not registered in time and comparing it Weghourst missing the deadline for the Manchester derby last week and to top it off he called Arteta a PE teacher. What a bellend🤣

  9. Zinchenko the one who really ran the show..
    Completely dominated the midfield
    Absolute superb…
    Party was horribly poor…

    1. Rubbish!! Party was fine, there was no bad performances the odd mistakes by some, but so what, we are playing a good united team…. Zinchenko is the best “playmaker left beck” in the world 😁

      1. Partey was at fault for Rashford’s 1st goal..
        He lost possession cheaply and couldn’t dealt with that…
        Also hé lost possession cheaply 2 or times..
        Didn’t controlled the game the way he normally does or the way Zinchenko does

  10. Wow, what a match. A well-deserved win. Credit to both teams, but Arsenal were superior though in playing style. Who asks for another striker?No need we have Nketiah, My MOTM was Zinchenko. A fantastic perfomance tonight.

  11. We dominated the game.
    Our g.k please punch that ball with a fist next time around, that should have prevented their second goal.
    What a game.
    The score was lenient on manu.
    Zinnny man of the match for me.
    So composed on the ball.
    Manu was outplayed. Performance wise, Manu were no where near arsenal, but the score-line made it look like a close game. I was so comfortable watching the game at 2:2. Looked like only a mistake from us could gift them a goal. Never looked like they could work out anything. As soon as the Japanese had Rash… in his pocket it was game over for them.

  12. Gooners seem to be saying Zinny was MotM. He WAS terrific of course, but this was a whole TEAM perf and the team were MEN OF THE MATCH.

    Even Partey , who has had better games, to put it mildly.

    And I HAVE NOT SEEN ANYONE SAY THAT TODAY WE KNOCKED UNITED OUT OF THE TITLE RACE , TO ALL INTENTS AND PURPOSES. So I have now said it!

  13. Some of you didn’t believe in Arteta and some didn’t believe in Eddie Nketiah, but now we are the best PL team and we keep on winning like champions. Top of the league well deserved 🔴⚪️

  14. I will give it to the guys for their mentality. Able to come back from a goal down to triumph knowing that the last time out with Manchester United we lost. This is what Champions are made of. Congratulations

  15. Thomas was being pressed by 2 people everytime he had the ball. It was great tactical set up from Ten Hag.

    It was a great match from a tactical point. Ten Hag did great but Arteta proved too good for him. I’d give Ten Hag a 7 and Arteta a 7.5. What a great match😅

  16. Incredible Eddie Nkethia now 13 goals from his last 13 Emirates Stadium starts? I think so but I could be wrong.
    What a relieve he gave me with that his last gap match winning goal. His 2nd in the game that sunk and buried Man Utd attempt in the match to get a point.
    I was annoyed with the Gunners for their allowing the Red Devils to draw level to 2-2 in the game. After Bukayo Saka has given us a 2-1 lead in it with his stunning goal. As the Gunners match defending in the game failed to hold fort tightly to not allow Lisandro Martinez to equalise for the Red Devils.
    And as the game pans on after the Red Devils have leveled up in it. I began to shiver, worrying but at the same time praying that Arsenal will score again to win the match.
    And which they did eventually through Nkethia’s match winning 3rd goal in the match at the death of the match. Which left me in jubilant mood, delighted, happy and elated.
    Kudos and credit to the Gunners, Arteta, his coaching staff for their efforts, and us Gooners support which saw us Victorious in our today’s big game matxh over Manchester United.

  17. Amazing Amazing WIN

    Eddie 2X
    Saka 1X

    Team play was unreal.

    Zinc played out of his mind.
    Partey showed me some recovery pace
    Xhaka put it on a plate

    Arteta has the team humming and KSE is backing him.

    For that I am happy and am glad I am being proven wrong on both counts.

    Long may this style of AFC’s futbol reign.
