Cristiano Ronaldo’s brace earned his team a 3-2 win over Arsenal during their 2021/2022 EPL first encounter and the action returns to Emirates Stadium as Arsenal host Manchester United on Saturday, April 23, 2022.
After an early lead by Arsenal at Old Trafford on December 2, 2021, Fred’s sensational pass was put behind Aaron Ramsdale by the skilful Manchester United playmaker Bruno Fernandes at the stroke of halftime to equalise the visitors’ goal.
It was 90 minutes of fierce football between the home side and their London rivals and on 52 minutes, Ronaldo’s shot stretched beyond Ramsdale’s reach but it took only two minutes for M. Ødegaard to draw Arsenal level again before the Portuguese popped up again with the winning goal in a riveting encounter.
Now, with just 3 points above 6th placed United, Arsenal hopes to qualify for the UEFA Champion League for the first time since their last appearance in 2017 but it remains to be seen if Erik Ten Hag’s announcement as United’s new manager would have a positive effect on the Red Devils.
