    Emile Smith Rowe's opener – cancelling out by Bruno Fernandes' fine leveller on 44 minutes – was the overwhelming talking point of the first half.

    Former England striker Alan Shearer told Prime Video: “My immediate thought was goal. I didn’t hear the referee blow and I didn’t see a foul on the keeper.

    “I think that happens in every game. The keeper goes down without a care to where the ball is and I don’t think he should be going down like that.

    “If it had been a serious injury then there’s an argument that maybe Arsenal should have let Man Utd score but a minute later he’s walking around and not limping.”

    Arsenal scored a controversial goal to open the scoring against Man Utd – and here's why it stood.

    Emile Smith Rowe volleyed home from a half-cleared corner to give the Gunners the lead in the 17th minute.

    Man Utd were left furious because goalkeeper David de Gea was laying on the ground between his sticks injured.

    The Spanish stopper would've probably denied Smith Rowe's effort – but for his injury.

    Football chiefs released a statement explaining the ball had crossed the line before the whistle blew – meaning the goal had to be given.

    And former referee Mark Clattenburg came on Amazon Prime to clear up any confusion about the incident itself.

    He said on the live broadcast: “Martin Atkinson has to give the goal because Fred accidentally stamps on David de Gea's foot, so therefore it's not a foul by an Arsenal player.

    “He doesn't blow his whistle and therefore he has to give the goal.”

    Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta celebrated on the touchline while Man Utd players surrounded the referee.

    Manchester United fans unveiled a huge Ole Gunnar Solskjaer banner ahead of their game against Arsenal.

    Supporters in the Stretford End of Old Trafford raised the gigantic sign in the air before kick-off as they sang songs in praise of their former manager and player.

    Solskjaer was sacked last month following a dismal run of form that saw United lose five of their first 12 league games this term.

    And tonight was the Red Devils' first game at home since Solskjaer's exit.

    The red banner featured a picture of the Norwegian tactician in black print.

    And across it were the words '2O LEGEND', with 'OLE' highlighted in white.

    SunSport reported this week how United had given fans permission to hold up the banner against Arsenal.

    Supporters approached the club about the touching gesture and Old Trafford chiefs approved.

    Following speculation over the United hot seat, Ralf Rangnick was eventually confirmed as the new interim boss.

    However, the German is yet to take charge of a game after struggling with work permit issues.

    And caretaker Michael Carrick was in control against Arsenal following games against Villarreal and Chelsea.

    Sir Alex Ferguson’s former No 2 Carlos Queiroz has revealed the ‘truth’ behind the infamous ‘flying boot’ clash with David Beckham.

    The legendary Manchester United manager clashed with Golden Balls on several occasions but the best remembered is undoubtedly the battle of February 2003.

    Michael Carrick to LEAVE Man Utd, Cristiano Ronaldo injury, Rangnick watches from stands – transfer news LIVE

    United lost 2-0 to bitter rivals Arsenal in the FA Cup fifth round and Fergie was not happy after the game.

    Ryan Giggs missed a sitter when it was still 0-0 but Becks was the one who was the main subject of Fergie’s ire.

    The Scot let rip at the England legend before kicking a stray boot in his direction which struck him in the face.

    Becks needed stitches and was seen sporting butterfly strips over the eyebrow wound in the days after – but Portuguese coach Queiroz says all was not quite as it seemed.

    He told Four-Four-Two: “It’s time to establish the truth behind that story.

    “Someone once told me that if he had intended to hit Beckham with that boot, Sir Alex’s left foot must be real quality.

    “I was there in the dressing room that day and, let’s put things right, it was not a good shot because the boot first hit a table and only after went in Beckham’s direction.

    “Sir Alex, I’m sorry but your left foot was not as good as you think!”

    Emile Smith Rowe rocked United with a controversial 13th minute opener for the Gunners.

    England midfielder Smith Rowe volleyed home from 20 yards as United keeper David de Gea lay injured.

    Ref Martin Atkinson only allowed it after a long VAR check, which seemed to confirm De Gea had not been fouled.

    Nonetheless, the goal rewarded Arsenal's lively start.

    Michael Carrick insists Eric Bailly understands why he has been instantly dropped for Manchester United skipper Harry Maguire tonight.

    Maguire is back after suspension despite Bailly impressing alongside Victor Lindelof in central defence for Sunday's 1-1 draw at Prem leaders Chelsea.

    And Carrick – in his last game in charge befor Ralf Rangnick becomes interim boss – told Amazon Prime: “Harry is the captain of the club and a terrific player and a big part of the squad.

    “Eric [did well the other day. He is fine with the reason for it. You want those left out to be disappointed. It is natural.”

    And of United's tactics Carrick said: “There is a lot made of the press and counter-attack and styles. We want to be a winning team.

    “There are different ways of going about it. Some games we have dominated with the ball, others we have sat back. We have plans for every game but it is winning that counts.

    “It is up to the players to give the fans something to sing about.

    “It is a great position for the players to be in, to come and play football and raise the energy in the stadium.”

    Arsenal head to Manchester United tonight for what has always been a bumper clash – even if both clubs have endured painful falls from the top.

    During the heyday of Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger, the two teams would be regularly battling it out for the Premier League title.

    In fact, for nine consecutive years from 1996 the trophy belonged exclusively to the both of them.

    Here SunSport takes a look at the combined squad’s from Arsenal 2003-04 season and Man Utd’s 2007-08 campaign.

    Manchester United left-back Alex Telles is being tracked by both Inter and AC Milan.

    The 28-year-old was in and out of United's team under the axed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer since his arrival in October 2020.

    Alex Telles shows off his impressive skills in Man Utd training

    He has made just two Premier League appearances so far this season, including in the 1-1 draw at Chelsea on Sunday following Solskjaer's sacking.

    And SunSport understands both Italian giants are looking to snap him up if his lack of playing time continues.

    Inter and AC were keen on a January loan deal for the ex-Porto defender, but any approach then will be rejected.

    Instead a move next summer is more likely when United would be able to demand more of their £13.5m fee paid back.

    Telles has found it tough to break into the starting eleven since joining, with Luke Shaw first choice.

    He has played just five times this season, including twice in the Champions League and once in the EFL Cup.

    Meanwhile, Edinson Cavani reportedly wants a move to Barcelona next summer.

    Like Telles, the striker has barely featured this term.

    And with his contract expiring at the end of the season, Cavani is ready to leave Old Trafford.

    Barcelona are long-term admirers of the Uruguayan star.

    And The Times claims Cavani is ready to move to the Nou Camp with new Barca boss Xavi.
