Manchester United 0-1 Arsenal: Premier League – October 2020
More than five and half years and twenty nine games without a victory away from home against the ‘Big Six’, this was always going to be our best result of 2020 despite it coming against a poor and out-of-sorts Manchester United.
Regardless of our respective forms, there really wasn’t many who gave us a fighting chance as we had made unwanted history of not turning up when the odds were in our favour.
A midfield masterclass from Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny (would you have ever believed it) managed to keep the likes of Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford quiet, allowing us to dominate and control our fierce rivals.
Our centre-back pairing of Rob Holding – who has a knack of impressing against the bigger teams – and Gabriel Magalhaes were equally impressive as Bernd Leno remained untested throughout.
Aubameyang’s penalty was all we had to show for the victory but we could and perhaps should have won by a bigger margin.
A victory so sweet and five years in the making, this looked like being the turning point…it only took seven Premier League matches to win again.
