They left it late in injury time of the 90th minute leaving Man United in shambles as they claimed a 3-1 victory over their rivals.

The Red Devils were the first to get the opening goal through Rashford but the Gunners equalised immediately from the restart.

Arsenal then left it late in injury time to kill Manchester United’s hope through new signing Declan Rice and substitute Gabriel Jesus.

Potential debutants Rasmus Hojlund, Altay Bayindir and Sergio Reguilon were all on the bench, including Jonny Evans.

The game started with Arsenal dominating most of the possessions as usual becoming dangerous with their attack.

However, it was Erik Ten Hag's side that drew the first blood. Kai Havertz loses possession inside the Manchester United half, with Christian Eriksen releasing Marcus Rashford down the left.

The England man, with Arsenal's defenders backing off, gets into the penalty area, shifts it onto his right foot and curls it into the net.

The Gunners did not let Man United enjoy the moment as they struck back immediately to make it 1-1.

Gabriel Martinelli pulled the ball back inside the penalty area and it was met by Martin Odegaard's lovely first-time finish putting his side level before the halftime break.

The second half started and both teams started creating chances for themselves to win the game but nothing came forth not until injury time.

Declan Rice, who joined the Gunners in a £100m deal from West Ham in the summer, got his first goal in Arsenal colours.

A corner kick was played into Rice at the back post, he shoots at goal, It takes a nick off Jonny Evans and Andre Onana in the United goal gets a hand to it but can't keep it out.

Gabriel Jesus then wrapped it up for Arsenal when Fabio Vieira slid it through, the Brazilian raced onwards, cut inside a desperate lunge from Diogo Dalot and slotted the ball past Andre Onana.

The game ended in a 3-1 victory for the Gunners as Erik Ten Hag side could not get the better of Arteta’s side 

Could this be the beginning of their title race?
