Watched the game and was happy that we won. Good score of 3-1 but I am not totally convinced yet that our team is 100% reason being:
1. We were not in full control from the later part of H1 onwards.
2. We were not attacking enough and lack possession the whole of H2.
3. Kudos to Arsenal that they played well when we started to take our foot of the pedal
4. I accept Pogba's red card but feel it is not intentional as he was trying to flick the ball away but Bellerin just leave his trailing leg there asking to be stepped on. But that's football and I just hope referees will be consistent in future.
5. DDG saves us again as I feel we might have drew or even lose by a goal.
That said, wonderful feeling about the win and happy to have watched a great game of holding and going out on fast break. It's beginning to feel like days of old even though we were vulnerable during a stretch of the game but hey we came out fine.
Great results, wonderful win, good team and manager and sad red card.

Red - You do realise that we were playing Arsenal who haven't lost at the Emirates since January and have won their last 12 home games in a row.

That game was totally unrecognisable from any previous away performance we've seen from a Jose team against our main rivals.

Our start was electric with a very high press, we attacked with pace and numbers. When you commit men forward and press high it's almost inevitable that you will give away some chances and have to be more reliant on the defence and goal keeper!

We bullied Arsenal and they couldn't cope with our power and pace. We looked like scoring every time we went forward. We scored 3 and had other great chances and opportunities.

It wasn't a perfect performance but we put Arsenal to the sword at times and the work rate, commitment and desire was fantastic.

We've missed that kind of intensity and work rate that we simply don't get from the likes of Miki, Mata and Ibra. We don't necessarily need that every game especially at home when teams often sit deep and concede possession but I think this needs to be the blueprint moving forward against the better teams.

I remember Lingard and Rashford running Chelsea ragged last year in arguably our best performance of the season.

It was brilliant edge of your seat stuff which we haven't seen for ages. Just as Arsenal fight back we counter brilliantly and it really was a throw back to what we'd often see from Fergi's best sides.

Great post Danny couldn’t agree more. Great performance and at least half on here were expecting a loss.

Yeah DL just that I wasn’t sitting down but watching from my bed as it was very late at night (1.30am) 🤣🤣.
But yes I love the intensity and excitement and hope we continue to play better and even more attacking and with sharpness. I can’t wait for the team to bring back that “fear” factor back not just at OT but everywhere. There were lapses but hey since when any team doesn’t have?
So yes it’s great and I trust Jose to slowly evolve the team and become the ManUtd team we all are wishing for.
Trust me even after the game I couldn’t sleep and kept thinking about the game and the highlights only to finally get to sleep this morning at 5am (Asia zone) with a smile on my face 🤣🤣.
