De Gea, Lingard Lead Man United to Victory at the Emirates

LONDON – The brilliant performance of Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea and two goals from Jesse Lingard gave Manchester United the victory over Arsenal 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium in London.

The fourth consecutive victory of the Jose Mourinho-led team leaves the Reds provisionally five points off the lead.

Manchester United held the favorable situation almost from the beginning. After just four minutes, the team secured the advantage with a goal by Ecuadorian Antonio Valencia from a pass of French Paul Pogba.

And seven minutes later, with Arsenal still affected by the conceded reverse, it extended its advantage. Anthony Martial met Jesse Lingard, who beat goalkeeper Petr Cech by the left post of his goal.

Arsenal monopolized the ball. However, the team derived little benefit from its possession because – among other factors – the skill offered by De Gea frustrated each of the attempts of the local team.

The team of Arsene Wenger, however, managed to close the gap at the beginning of the second half, in an effort conceived by Aaron Ramsey and culminated by the Frenchman Alexandre Lacazette.

Arsenal then returned to the game and accelerated it.

However, Manchester United delivered the final blow to Arsenal. Lingard scored the deciding goal.

Jose Mourinho’s squad played the last quarter of an hour with one player less following the ejection of Paul Pogba. Not even in superiority could Arsenal improve its position, which saw his first defeat after three consecutive victories to leave the fourth place at the table, now held by Liverpool.

United, however, maintains its options. It added its fourth consecutive win.
