Marcus Rashford scored twice as Manchester United beat Arsenal in an entertaining game at Old Trafford.
The home side took the lead in the 28th minute when Arsenal failed to clear a Guillermo Varela cross and Rashford slammed the ball past Petr Cech, who got a hand to the shot.
It was two just three minutes later when Jesse Lingard crossed for Rashford to glance a header home for his fourth goal of the week to send the home fans into raptures.
Arsene Wenger’s side pulled a goal back before half-time when former United striker Danny Welbeck headed Mesut Ozil’s free-kick past the returning David de Gea.
Louis van Gaal’s side restored their two-goal advantage when Rashford found Ander Herrera with the pass and the Spaniard’s shot took a wicked deflection off Laurent Koscielny.
De Gea then saved well from Welbeck but Ozil volleyed in the rebound to make it a tense finish, but the Reds held on to make it three wins in the week to ease the pressure on the manager.
