Manchester United returned to winning ways with a 3-2 victory over Arsenal at Old Trafford on Saturday. Manchester United struggled in the opening portions of the game after losing an early goal to the opposition.
When Arsenal's De Gea was stepped on by Fred, the Gunners scored the opening goal of the game. It was only after Emile Smith Rowe had pushed the ball into his own net that the referee neglected to blow his whistle.
Some Manchester United players, on the other hand, swung the game in their favor. At Old Trafford, Manchester United played some excellent football.
In spite of Fred's poor performance in the first half of the game, he finished with the best overall performance. The reason Manchester United conceded an early goal after stepping on De Gea was because he lost possession numerous times in the first half.
When it came to the second half of the game, Fred picked up his game significantly.
In the second half, he made crucial passes and cleared crucial obstacles. The equalizer by Bruno Fernandez was made possible by Fred. He received his first assist since April of this year. In addition, he was awarded a penalty kick, which gave Manchester United a 3-2 lead.
2. Cristiano Ronaldo
Real match-winner Cristiano Ronaldo has demonstrated on numerous occasions that he is one of the best in the world. Ronaldo once again assisted Manchester United in defeating Mikel Arteta's team, who were in fine form.
During the game, Ronaldo scored two goals. He achieved his career milestones of 800 and 801 points. His two goals allowed Manchester United to close the gap on the top four to three points with three games still to play. Ronaldo was named the match's most valuable player.
3. David de Gea
Despite the fact that De Gea was held responsible for the first goal allowed by the Red Devils in the first half of the game. He collapses in a heap and refuses to stand up until Emile Smith-Rowe snatches the ball from his grasp and puts it in the net. De Gea then went on to make several incredible saves to keep Manchester United in the game.
De Gea saved a wonderful opportunity for Arsenal to score in the 77th minute when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang struck the post from close range. Manchester United remained in the game thanks to De Gea's heroics.
