Man Utd vs Arsenal: Arsenal Top Premier League After Trossard's Winner Against Manchester United

Arsenal reclaimed the top spot in the Premier League after defeating Manchester United 1-0 at Old Trafford, courtesy of Leandro Trossard’s first-half goal. Trossard capitalized on Kai Havertz’s assist to score, punishing United’s defensive lapse.

The victory was significant for Arsenal, marking only their second league win at Old Trafford in 17 years. With this result, Arsenal have pushed Manchester City to the brink in the title race, now leading by a point, although City have a game in hand.

Arsenal’s performance was pragmatic rather than dazzling, showcasing their solid form with 15 wins in their last 17 league matches. They sit on 86 points from 37 games, with City close behind on 85 points from 36 matches.

Meanwhile, Manchester United’s struggles continued, suffering their 14th defeat of the Premier League season, which is their worst record in 46 years. Erik ten Hag’s team faced defensive issues, exemplified by Casemiro’s misjudgment leading to Arsenal’s winning goal.

Arsenal’s defensive solidity was notable, highlighted by William Saliba’s standout performance alongside Gabriel. The Gunners’ victory keeps the pressure on Manchester City as the title race heads into its final stages.
