Arsenal lose a Premier League game at Old Trafford, Anfield and Etihad Stadium in a single season for the third time, after 2013-14 and 2017-18.
The final whistle was celebrated by the crowd and the players. Within the club and within the team that was a big win for them. Ralf Rangnick knows there is a lot to work with here. It’s a disappointing defeat for Arsenal. That will be tough for them to take.
Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes to Amazon: “Every win is important. It’s been hard for us. Today we got a great win. We can be satisfied because we beat Arsenal. Next game is coming quick so we have to be ready.”
On whether Arsenal’s opener should have been disallowed: “I don’t know. Normally when the keeper goes down we should stop the game but mistakes happen. Playrs make mistakes. I don’t know if it is from the referee. If that is a mistake from the referee, that can happen.”
On Cristiano Ronaldo: “Incredible. We all know he is improving game by game, year by year. He wants to keep being the best and that’s what he did. He knows how to self-motivate.”
On Michael Carrick: “He can be a really top manager in the future if he gets the chance. He knows how to speak, he knows a lot about football.”
On Ralf Rangnick: “I think he’ll come tomorrow. Now is a new beginning and a new start. Every game is a new beginning and a new start.”
