Manchester United 1-1 Arsenal: Aubameyang seal a point for the Gunners after Tominay put host ahead with a brillant strike

The contest between Manchester United and Arsenal ends all square as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s second-half strike cancelled out Scott McTominay’s fine effort at Old Trafford.

It took McTominay’s stunning goal on the stroke of half-time to bring the game to life. The second period was a better spectacle, although the two teams still struggled for quality. Bukayo Saka teed up Aubameyang for the equaliser, who clipped the ball over David de Gea into the net.

The goal was initially disallowed for offside, but VAR overturned the decision. The hosts had good chances to win the game as McTominay somehow missed the target with a close-range header, while Harry Maguire and Marcus Rashford were denied by Bernd Leno.

At the other end Bukayo Sako saw his attempt well blocked by Maguire. A draw was probably a fair outcome, although it will suit the Gunners far more than Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.
