Manchester United defeated Arsenal 2-0 in a pre-season friendly last night. Bruno Fernandes and Jadon Sancho scored the goals for United, while Arsenal’s best chance fell to Kai Havertz. Eddie Nketiah also came close in the second-half.
United started the game brightly and took the lead in the 30th minute through Fernandes. The Portuguese midfielder struck a powerful left-footed shot from outside the box that Aaron Ramsdale could only parry into the net.
