Man arrested after Arsenal vs. Manchester United pitch invasion

Paris St Germain coach Thomas Tuchel reacts

After a bright start, Arsenal were almost hit with a sucker punch when with United's first attack, Romelu Lukaku turned Luke Shaw's cross onto the crossbar for the first of a series of wasted chances for the Belgian striker. Of course, the penalty - I think the referee will be disappointed when he sees this, I don't think it's a penalty.

For Solskjaer, whose side delivered heroics with a 3-1 Champions League win at Paris Saint Germain in midweek, this was his first taste of domestic defeat since being appointed caretaker manager in December and ended a club-record run of nine away wins. Sometimes it happens. We hit the woodwork twice, we got four, five very big chances.

The defeat was United's first in the league under Solskjaer.

The home side doubled their lead midway through the second half when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored from the penalty spot after Fred was penalised for bringing down Alexandre Lacazette.

He said on Sky Sports: "I'm very proud of our supporters, they pushed us a lot and this is a big result and they created a big atmosphere for our players".

This win over Southampton made it 10 victories in 12 league matches under Solskjaer and lifted United above Arsenal - and to within three points of third-place Tottenham.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery was delighted with a statement result that showed his team can hold their own against the league's elite.

The Gunners took advantage of their opponents need to score and attempted to hit them on the counter-attack yet couldn't manage to do so from open play.

Kelly’s girlfriends defend him in second day of CBS coverage
Two women whose families have complained that Kelly is controlling them spoke to King about their relationship with the singer. Kelly quickly turned emotional; the star said he never did any of the things claimed in the Lifetime docu-series, Surviving R.

Arsenal is now just one point behind North London-rival Tottenham, with United fifth and Chelsea sixth in an increasingly tight fight for the Champions League spots. He is quoted by Metro as saying: "We know they are doing very well".

Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown believes that triumph was down to Emery fielding an ambitious team.

"I don't think there is enough contact to warrant the penalty", said Solskjaer, while even Emery categorised the award as "soft".

Romelu Lukaku was not at his best, Rashford looked a bit clumsy in key moments and Paul Pogba was unable to push this team forward.

Just as in May of past year, Granit Xhaka opened the scoring for the Gunners with one of his customary, slightly speculative long-range efforts.

"We have won games we have not deserved to win, and today we lost a game we did not deserve to lose".

"I thought we created some great chances, but we just didn't take them".
