Manchester United showed tenacity and resilience, but eventually lost to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
Unitek took the lead thanks to Marcus Rashford before Lisandro Martinez equalized in the second half.
Arsenal equalized thanks to Eddie Nketiah, who also scored the winning goal in added time. Bukayo Saka scored the second goal for the Gunners.
United show heart
Despite the fact that due to the absence of Casemiro, the Red Devils had chances, United gave their all and almost lost.
Although some players did not perform as expected, the performance of David de Gea, who was responsible for Saki’s goal, was one of the most disappointing.
David de Gea’s departure and his tendency to stay on the line have been criticized more than once.
David de Gea was definitely Arsenal's man of the match today.
We’ll never be a serious team with him.

But in a clash with the league leaders, the Spaniard ate a long-range ranger Saki.
At first he seemed to be blind, but the position of his legs was wrong, as he was stuck on the other side and was slow to react.
This is not the first time he has failed to repel a direct attempt. He made a meal of the strike that allowed Everton to equalise in the FA Cup, and was guilty of two Brentford goals earlier in the season.
DDG fails a big test
His shot-stop was below par, as was his pass.
Several times his passes were unstable under pressure, when he kicked for a long time and eventually conceded the ball.
It is assumed that the Spanish stopper will be replaced next summer, but many goals seem to be beyond the reach of the Red Devils.
His contract extension is also at stake, but his performances at crucial moments left much to be desired.
