Manchester United left the Emirates with three points and a 3-1 result on Saturday, but the result doesn’t even begin to tell the full story.
The game was tipped to be an exciting one from the get go, but no one expected it to be as good as it ended up being. Almost everything one can expect from a proper football match took place, i.e. goals, remarkable saves (a lot of them), denied penalties, a sending off and a Jesse Lingard celebration.
It really was end-to-end stuff and David de Gea had the most incredible performance of his life. Had it not been for the keeper’s heroics, United would have certainly lost, despite picking up an early two-goal lead that should have killed the game.
Below are some of the best reactions from Twitter:
Every man and his dog could see we absolutely battered United today, and if it wasn’t for De Gea we would’ve won comfortably. But ultimately when you give away 2 (TWO) goal in the first 15 minutes, you’re behind the 8 ball and you are fucked. Same old Arsenal mistakes.

David De Gea could save a PDF file on a calculator.

Paul Pogba will now miss the Manchester Derby. This is expected to have absolutely zero impact on the outcome of the title race.

Jesse Lingard doing the milly rock on Arsenal’s own ground is a story to tell the grandchildren

Any #Arsenal fan that comes out with WengerOut mantra coz of the outcome of this game is shallow. We lost but 3:1 doesn’t even tell half of the story. The team gave everything
