Manchester United’s £82million new boy Antony scored on his debut and Marcus Rashford got two as Erik ten Haga’s men ended Arsenal’s 100% start to the season at Old Trafford. In a pulsating duel, the Brazilian opened the scoring 10 minutes before half-time when he swept a shot into the far corner. Rashford bagged an assist and after Bukayo Saka equalized on the hour, the England striker benefited from two clinical United counter-attacks.
Bruno Fernandes was at the heart of both, first splitting the Arsenal defense for Rashford and then sending Christian Eriksen away when the Dane provided the striker with a tap-in. A delighted Erik ten Hag insisted Antony will prove to be Manchester United’s “missing link” after his £85million debut goal helped ruin Arsenal’s perfect start to the season.
“You can see all his potential,” Ten Hag said of the 22-year-old Brazilian, whose dancing around the ball showed his confidence on his first appearance. Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag singled out Marcus Rashford and Antony for praise after they both scored in the Red Devils’ excellent 3-1 win over Arsenal at Old Trafford. Rashford set up Antony for a first-half debut strike before the England forward netted a second-half brace. Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag felt the introduction of Cristiano Ronaldo gave them more flexibility in attack as they handed Premier League leaders Arsenal their first defeat of the season. Ronaldo replaced Jadon Sancho in the 58th minute for United 1-0 up and Bukayo Saka equalized two minutes later.
However, Arsenal were level after just six minutes when Marcus Rashford was headed in by Bruno Fernandes to regain United’s lead. Marcus Rashford scored his second moments later to seal victory for Man United. Asked what the thinking was behind moving Rashford, The Hag said: “He can do it from the right, you bring in Cristiano Ronaldo as a forward. Although no goals or assists were listed in Cristiano Ronaldo’s stats, the Portuguese superstar played a key role in United’s win. His movement helped draw Arsenal’s defense and midfield towards him, allowing Marcus Rashford to play a high line forward and United out-rebounded the Gunners on the counter-attack. Ronaldo’s run from the ball in his own half forced Arsenal into the lead for Rashford’s first goal, proving he can push.
“Marcus played as a number nine and from the wing, he played like Christian Eriksen, pressure game, he transferred really well, but we expect him to play as a striker who will aim, intercept, pass, connect. , coming into the box and scoring goals. “I’m really happy with his performance, it shows his development and room for improvement, but he has such great ability, I’m happy with him in the team.” Rashford was moved to the left wing to accommodate Ronaldo, who had his most productive outing of the season as a centre-forward.
