So memorable was this game, that Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag still talks about it on a near weekly basis during press conferences.

The rivalry between Arsenal and Manchester United has been one of the biggest in England for decades, which made this win so much sweeter.

Better still was the manner in which we did it, which, while incredibly nervy at the time, sent the Red Devils' fanbase into meltdown as we sailed into the distance with the three points thanks to two late goals.

Make no mistake, Arsenal deserved to win this game, but the empty feeling when Rasmus Højlund put the ball in the back of the net in the 89th minute was overwhelming, only for the video assistant referee (VAR) to adjourn him to have been offside - a decision mentioned by ten Hag on a regular basis.

While this would often be a late reprieve for a team to save a point, it signaled the most chaotic end to a game that the Emirates Stadium has seen for some time.

Declan Rice fired us ahead in the 96th minute, stunning the away crowd, before Gabriel Jesus, as Manchester United surged forward in search of an equalizer, doubled our lead in the 101st minute to give fans a 3-1 win to boast about in the days and weeks that followed.
