What a great start by Arsenal as they take the lead against Man United after just 8 minutes.
Arteta surprised us all by including Nicholas Pepe instead of Martinelli in the starting line-up, but his choice proved to be the correct one as he was in the right place (which just happened to be in the middle of the United penalty area) when the ball got deflected into his path, but he made no mistake and blasted it into the net.
Watch it here….

Now we just have to hope that we can keep our heads in front and not fall apart like we did against Chelsea….
