Watch: All Goals & Highlights from Arsenal’s unlucky loss to Man United

Manchester United beat Arsenal by a 3-1 scoreline to end the latter’s 100% winning start to the new campaign, but the result doesn’t tell you the whole story.

The Gunners were denied the opening goal for an extremely soft ‘foul’, before going on to concede a goal well against the run of play. We then showed our true strength to come out after the break and assert our dominance as if we were playing at home, and got ourselves back in the tie, only to once again get hit on the counter against the run of play, and they then added a devastating third goal with yet another counter to clinch all the points.

I don’t think many Arsenal fans will be disappointed with the effort and level of performance from our side, and I’m not entirely sure that it is fair to judge Mikel Arteta for trying to make something happen with three quick changes when we were trailing, but what is for certain, is that this team we are backing is here to play this season no matter what challenge is in front of them.

We will go down fighting if we must, but there will be no easy wins against us.

  1. There’s some really strange interpretation of the offside rule around.

    In MU’s 3rd goal (apart from the first pass looking offside), the final pass to Rashford has only the keeper but no other Arsenal player near. The 2022 rules say (from the FA web site – I expect the formatting will disappear):

    A player is in an offside position if:

    – any part of the head, body or feet is in the opponents’ half (excluding the halfway line) and
    – any part of the head, body or feet is nearer to the opponents’ goal line than both the ball and the second-last opponent

    The hands and arms of all players, including the goalkeepers, are not considered. For the purposes of determining offside, the upper boundary of the arm is in line with the bottom of the armpit.
    A player is not in an offside position if level with the:

    – second-last opponent or
    – last two opponents
    —————————–
    The *second last* opponent (i.e. not the keeper, the next one up) – is miles up the pitch so the pass to Rashford is to an offside player?

    1. Not so! RASHFORD was NOT in front of the ball when you freeze frame the moment is was passed to him by his teammate. It WAS close I can agree, but definitely ONside. Good try though! Their second goal was also touch and go but JUST onside.
