Manchester United climbed to seventh in the Premier League table after a 3-2 win over Arsenal. Thanks to two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo while the other was added by Bruno Fernandes. With this Ronaldo, who finished sixth place for Ballon d’Or 2021, hits the mark of 800 goals for the club and country.
The opening goal of the football match was scored by Smith Rowe from Arsenal in the 13th minute. In the end minutes of the first half, Fernandes equalized and after the interval, Ronaldo notched the winner from the penalty spot after Atkinson went to the pitchside monitor and ruled that Fred had been brought down by Odegaard.
As Manchester United win over Arsenal with 3-2 match results Bruno Fernandes expressed his thoughts, saying, “Every win is important. It’s been hard for us. Today we got a great win. We can be satisfied because we beat Arsenal.”
Carrick, who was appointed as interim coach following the dismissal of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, announced his decision to leave the club after the final whistle. “It’s not been an easy decision to make but I feel it’s the right one. I was going to take time off after I finished playing and it never happened. It feels like the right time to step away and what a way to finish,” Carrick said in a statement.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta saw positives in his team’s performance but thought they defended poorly. “If you concede three goals at Old Trafford it is difficult to get a result. I was disappointed with the goals that we conceded,” he said.
“There were a lot of things that I liked In the game. I liked the behaviour of individuals. When you score two goals at Old Trafford you expect to get something from the game and that is a regret, but that is our fault. That is what happens against this quality of opponent.”
