Arsenal’s spirited performance was not enough as they went down fighting 1-3 against a clinical Manchester United last night.
United’s defensive strategy was underscored by Ashley Young’s nous in the 30th minute, when he thwarted a Mesut Ozil free kick from finding the back of the net.
Young broke away from the wall just as Ozil was about to loft the ball into the top right corner.
With David de Gea waiting on the left side of the goal, Young’s initial movement ensured that he got to the ball in time, and cleared it with a header.
Very smart from Young, reading the German’s move to perfection. Check out the incident below –
