Arsenal won a dramatic Premier League classic through Eddie Nketiah’s late goal against Manchester United.

The Gunners, chasing a first title in 19 years, fell behind thanks to Marcus Rashford’s opening goal that set the tone for an enthralling game at the top of the division.

Minutes after the England international had opened the scoring with a driven finish from range, the home side were level with Nketiah’s close range header.

After the break, the tempo did not dip and Bukayo Saka gave Arsenal the lead with an equally brilliant goal before Aaron Ramsdale, usually so reliable, spilled a corner right into the path of Lisandro Martinez, who duly punished the home side from close range.

Still, as has been the way all season, Arsenal roared back. Nketiah, in for the injured Gabriel Jesus, ensured a dramatic three points for Mike Arteta’s side with a late strike to send the Emirates Stadium into a frenzy.

With the 3-2 win over Manchester United, Arsenal now five points ahead of Manchester City with a game in hand.
