Wenger’s Old Trafford Farewell Ends In Defeat

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was powerless as he watched his team succumb to a 2-1 loss to their hosts Manchester United in what was a Premier League Matchday 36 clash.

The Frenchman was making his last visit to Old Trafford as an Arsenal manager following the announcement that he will leave his post at the end of the season only for a late Fellaini goal to hand the home side three points at the expense of the Gunners.

Paul Pogba’s first half goal was cancelled out by former Manchester United forward Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s strike for Arsenal in the second half before the late show from substitute Marouane Fellaini gave Jose Mourinho’s men the win.

The victory takes the Red Devils to 78 points as they maintain their second position on the log while Arsenal (57 points) stay in sixth as they await their first away point of 2018.

In the other game played on Sunday, champions Manchester City thrashed their hosts West Ham United 4-1 courtesy goals from Leroy Sane, Pablo Zabaleta (own goal), Gabriel Jesus and Fernandinho while English leftback Aaron Cresswell got the consolation goal for the Hammers.

Pep Guardiola’s City are now closer to breaking the record for goals (103 held by Chelsea) and points (95 held by Chelsea).

They are presently on 101 goals and 93 points with three games to go.
