Arsenal saw off Manchester United yesterday, winning 3-2 in one of their best performances of the season in what was a tough encounter.
United looked like they might be handing a bit of hope to arch rivals City by first taking the lead and then looking like taking a point at The Emirates. However, a late winner from Eddie Nketiah ensured it was another three points for the Gunners.
Of course, United played their part in what was a fine game at The Emirates. And speaking on CBS Sportsabout the game, Arsenal legend Thierry Henryadmitted he was massively surprised by what he saw from Manchester United.
I am happy that Arsenal won and they deserved to win after the performance in the second half but boy, Manchester United look different under Ten Hag. I will be honest, I am a big fan of Ten Hag. He is the coach I recommended to Laporta at Barcelona after Ronald Koeman was sacked. He is a genius,” Henry said.
Today, we saw a team with three years development vs a team with six months. Also, a team with a full week of rest against a team with two days rest, and still Manchester United went toe to toe, which was surprising. I thought Arsenal would be all over United from kick-off and United’s players would sit back. I was wrong. United in fact had better control in the first half. You give Ten Hag one more year and back him in the market, then United will be a force to reckon with. No disrespect to Sir Alex, but if Ten Hag gets it right at United, they will play more attractive football than under Alex Ferguson.”
