MU was defeated by Arsenal, coach Rangnick “flies a white flag”
In the highlight match of the 34th round of the Premier League, which had just ended at the Emirates Stadium, MU performed poorly and had to receive a 1-3 defeat against Arsenal. Nuno Tavares (3′), Bukayo Saka (32′ pen) and Granit Xhaka (70′) were the bright ones that brought 3 points for “The Gunners”. On the “Red Devils” side, Cristiano Ronaldo (34′) was the only one to enter his name on the electronic board. In this match, midfielder Bruno Fernandes missed a penalty in the 57th minute.
This victory helps Arsenal temporarily climb to 4th place in the Premier League table with 60 points after 33 matches, 3 points ahead of Tottenham but 1 more kick. MU ranked 6th with 54 points through 34 matches. That means, the opportunity to compete for a spot in the Top 4 of the red half of Manchester is almost over.
Thus, this is the 4th match in a row, MU must receive an away defeat in the Premier League. According to statistics firm Opta, the last time, “Red Devils” experienced a similar bad performance in March 1981.
After Teddy Sheringham (1997-1998), Bruno Fernandes became the first player to miss two penalties in a Premier League season.
Speaking after the match, coach Rangnick said: “The only weakness of MU in the last match was the ability to defend on the flanks. Although the performance improved compared to the Liverpool match, we still had to accept the result. disappointing results.
Although creating many chances to score, MU only scored 1 goal. After this loss, we have run out of chances to finish in the Top 4 in the Premier League this season.
Today, decisions from VAR are not in favor of MU In my opinion, Arsenal’s 3rd goal was offside, and Ronaldo’s 2nd goal was not offside. In addition, we were also unlucky when the ball hit the crossbar and post twice.”
