Manchester United vs Arsenal LIVE!
Arsenal’s Leandro Trossard capitalised on dreadful Man Utd defending to give his side a 1-0 victory on Sunday that saw Mikel Arteta’s men provisionally overtake Manchester City for top spot in the Premier League table.
While Arsenal, who won for just the second time at Old Trafford in their last 17 visits, have 86 points with one game left of the tightest title race in years, holders City remain in the driving seat with 85 points and two matches to play.
Trossard scored in the 20th minute when Kai Havertz strolled barely challenged into space on the right side before sending the ball into the box for Trossard to tuck home.
The game swung from end to end over a final tense few minutes, with United goalkeeper Andre Onana leaping to push away shots from substitute Gabriel Martinelli and Declan Rice.
United sit eighth with two games left, and trail sixth-placed Newcastle by three points in their quest for a European berth next season.

Thanks for joining us in today’s live blog!
We’ll be back throughout the week with all the big Premier League games in the countdown to the final days, and then of course next Sunday too when it all wraps up.
Arsenal the victors today, they go top of the table with a 1-0 win at Manchester United.
Recap the action with our match report!
Former Arsenal star Paul Merson has told fans they have to want Liverpool to beat Aston Villa on Monday to aid their Premier League title challenge.
Villa Park will be bouncing for the visit of Jurgen Klopp’s side as a win will guarantee a top-four finish and Champions League football in the west Midlands next season.
Such a scenario would lead to Tottenham having practically nothing to play for when they host Manchester City a day later, a game in which Arsenal will be praying for their neighbours to take a result from the defending champions.
Read the full story!
“We played to save, playing backwards and we didn’t create the threat we wanted.
“Because of that it became open but we defended so well.
“The [clean sheet is down to the] attitude of the whole team, look at Kai [Havertz] chasing the ball, it’s a collective thing.
“You want to play better, especially the second half, but that’s another step the team has to take. It was high stakes, it was the same at Spurs, so credit to the boys.”
For anybody not sure why Manchester United fans complain about a lack of TLC for Old Trafford…

William Saliba 7
Solid and made an important challenge to stop Garnacho in his tracks in the second half.
Bukayo Saka 5
Very quiet by his standards, particularly in the first half, and was not involved in any big moments of note.

Amad Diallo 7
Comfortable and elegant in possession and worked hard up and down the right flank. Shame he was forced off injured with 20 minutes to go.
Casemiro 4
Played Kai Havertz a mile onside for the opening goal and then failed to track the run of Trossard. It was to prove the decisive error of the match.

Alejandro Garnacho tries his luck from range but its never troubling David Raya. Goal kick and Arsenal have survived the bulk of added-on time.
