Manchester United's 100 per cent away record under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ended at the Emirates Stadium here on Sunday as they lost to Arsenal 2-0.

Granit Xhaka, opened the scoring for Arsenal as he managed to strike a goal just 12 minutes into the game with a swerving shot from 30 yards.

This shot by Xhaka seemed to have flat-footed David de Gea. Looking at the first sight, it looked like a horrible one for the top-class goalkeeper.

The Spanish goalkeeper was quick for his own good, anticipating the initial shot to his left only for it to deviate massively to his right.

United failed to make their presence felt in attacking aspect of the game and as a result, the game was put beyond them when Aubameyang converted from the spot after Alexandre Lacazette went to ground under pressure from Fred.

After the miracle win in Paris on Wednesday against Paris Saint-German in Champions League, this loss against Arsenal would hamper their morale going ahead in the league.

Manchester United now stand at the fifth position in the league standings with 58 points whereas Arsenal stands on the fourth position with 60 points.

United next play against Wolves on March 30.
