Manchester United are chasing a fourth consecutive win in the Premier League and are in the perfect position to do so at half-time.
United started the encounter as the better side and fans were jubilant ahead of kick-off after Erik ten Hag named new signing Antony in the starting line-up.
After early pressure from United, Arsenal eventually fought their way back into the game but it was the Reds who would go into the 15-minute break ahead.
Bruno Fernandes, Jadon Sancho and Antony combined to feed Antony through, who made no mistake with just Aaron Ramsdale to beat.

The camera quickly panned to Erik ten Hag, who was in conversation with the fourth official. The referee seemed to be impressed with Antony’s strike but more likely, they were discussing the advantage given in the build-up.
United are now 45 minutes away from securing their fourth consecutive win.
