Arsene Wenger finally gets one over Jose Mourinho as Arsenal beat Manchester United 2-0 [Best Tweets]

Arsenal stopped Manchester United’s 25-game unbeaten run in the Premier League as they rounded up a 2-0 victory against their age-old rivals at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

After a tight first half, the second period blew the game open and the Gunners capitalised on it.

They looked the stronger team coming out of the tunnel after 45 minutes, and were rewarded for their good performance as Granit Xhaka’s long-ranged effort deflected off Ander Herrera to give the hosts a crucial lead.

Danny Welbeck, who graduated from Manchester United’s academy, once again found a way to score against his former employers with a towering header that beat David de Gea all ends up in the United goal.

However, the result was all the more important for Arsene Wenger as it was his first league win over his arch nemesis Jose Mourinho after failing to get a number over the Portuguese in 13 matches.

The managerial duo were among the talking points on social media:


Despite being handed the Man of the Match award, fans had a mixed opinion about Aaron Ramsey’s game. For some, he really stepped up to the task and delivered in a big game, while for the others, he made a number of silly errors.
