Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang's second half penalty was the only difference in the match, with the effort enough to earn the Gunners their first Premier League win at the Theatre of Dreams since 2006.

Trouble at Old Trafford as Man United legend tells fans how long they will wait for another EPL title

Sheffield United, Fulham and Burnley are occupying the relegation zone with a point each.

However, Fulham have a chance of moving a place above the drop should they beat West Bromwich at Craven Cottage on Monday night.

Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Manchester United suffered yet another embarrassing loss at home on Sunday afternoon, November 1, as the Red Devils lost to arch rivals Arsenal 1-0, no thanks to a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang strike.

It was Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s 100th game in charge at Manchester United and they performed poorly - meaning they have now lost three games at home this season.

It is their worst start since David Moyes' doomed spell in 2013 and former captain Roy Keane is upset with the players in the squad and fears they would eventually be responsible for the manager’s sack.
