Arsenal players claim Lingard celebration motivated them to beat United

With Alexis Sanchez's high wages and poor form reportedly becoming a problem for Manchester United, the club has reportedly come up with a plan to get him off their books. "We don't play against the other top-six teams, so I think we can beat the others".

Although pundits blamed United goalkeeper David de Gea after he was caught wrong-footed for Granit Xhaka's long-range opener, Solskjaer exonerated him from fault as the Arsenal midfielder had struck the ball like a Brazilian.

Manchester United's Ashley Young has called for greater protection for players after his team's 2-0 Premier League defeat at Arsenal was disrupted by a fan running on to the pitch and shoving his team mate Chris Smalling.

Arsenal are now fourth in the Premier League, two points clear of Man Utd, and just a point adrift of north London rivals Tottenham.

"There's not many where you could say "I'd pay to watch him". However, the Belgian went into his old habits against the Gunners where scuffed an early effort onto the crossbar before failing to convert with another close-range effort which was impressively saved by goalkeeper Bernd Leno, who had the flawless game for the Gunners.

They may also lose Callum Hudson-Odoi, and nobody knows what the future holds with regards to the vacant technical director position, a possible vacancy in the manager's seat should things go south and, most importantly, Roman Abramovich's inability to return to Britain.

Aubameyang, who stroked home a penalty after strike partner Alexandre Lacazette had gone down under pressure from Fred, concurred with Leno - but also revealed he had originally planned his own celebration. I said something to the staff to put the mask there but I couldn't find it. There are still eight games and we want to win every game.

The 29-year-old Gabon worldwide stepped up to take the pivotal spot-kick after missing a late penalty in the draw with north London rivals Tottenham a week earlier. "The manager gave me the time and when I got the chance, I played good, so he said, "you will stay in goal".

"I don't class it as a mistake. I felt well and I was ready to score".
