Arsenal move above Man Utd as Solskjaer suffers first league defeat


ARSENAL MANAGER Unai Emery was delighted with his team's performance as they beat Manchester United to return to the top four, thus ending Ole Gunnar Solksjaer's unbeaten run in the Premier League (March 10).

Whilst Young called on the Premier League to take a serious look at the situation in light of further examples of fans coming onto the pitch to confront players.

It wasn't a flawless performance by any means, but like Tottenham last week, we again looked solid and the players again showed the necessary fight required as we go for the top 4.

While Solskjaer admitted his players "did not have the zip" at the Emirates, ending a club record of nine straight away wins, he also attributed the loss to a soft spot kick decision, which was converted by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

"We are disappointed with the result but looking at the performance, you can not say it was a game we deserved to lose".

Tottenham now sit third on 61 points after losing at Southampton but Arsenal moved up to fourth and just one point behind their north London rivals with a 2-0 victory over Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.

Superb performance! Brilliant result! Sometimes, you don't take them and we just didn't take them.

"We would like to apologise to Chris and Manchester United and are pleased that the individual was apprehended and arrested". If they win their game in hand (against Brighton) they will be equal on points with us as well!

"[Arsenal] got the goal that they wanted through Granit Xhaka and then I thought they played well enough to get the three points", he told ESPN FC.

"We created at least five good chances, hit the wood work twice". Today is of course the lowest we've been and we lost a chance to really put pressure on Tottenham Hotspurs but we're still in the fight.

United face Wolves in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup at Molineux on Saturday evening (19:55 GMT).

"We are in the top four and the other teams now wait for our mistakes".
