With Arsenal at the top of the Premier League, a dramatic win against Man United at Emirates Stadium extended their lead at the table's summit.

The Gunners came from 1-0 down to win the game 3-2 thanks to a brace from Eddie Nketiah and a stunning goal by Bukayo Saka. Nketiah won the game with his second goal in the 90th minute. The desire to come back from a goal down and fight until the last minute showed the strength, passion and desire within this Arsenal team.

Some would also argue that this result was the beginning of the demonstration of the growing gap in quality between Mikel Arteta's Arsenal and Erik ten Hag's Manchester United.
