English Premier League Report: Arsenal v Manchester United 02 December 2017

Arsenal came back strongly, attacking in waves and pulled a goal back early in the second half through Alexandre Lacazette but United reestablished a two-goal margin through Lingard again.

After 74 minutes, his and Arsenal's hopes were boosted when Pogba was shown a straight red card for a stamp on Hector Bellerin, who had fouled Ashley Young moments earlier, ruling him out of the forthcoming Manchester derby.

Lacazette was twice denied by De Gea, who relied on his reactions to keep out a close-range toe poke before needing assistance from the crossbar to keep out another on-target attempt from the Frenchman.

They comfortably held on despite Paul Pogba being sent off for a unsafe challenge late on, punishing Arsenal for early defensive mistakes.

Laurent Koscielny's careless cross-field pass inadvertently set up Valencia's opener before Shkodran Mustafi's carelessness in possession led to Lingard scoring, the England global not even having to break stride to convert Anthony Martial's exquisite reverse pass in behind.

"On one side, I feel extremely sorry for the players because their attitude was impeccable until the end". Arsenal played in some period awesome attacking football - creating difficulties for us. Hazard also provided a potent reminder of what England can expect when they face Belgium in the World Cup in Russian Federation next year.

Chelsea came back from a goal down to ease to a 3-1 victory courtesy of two goals from Hazard - including an impudent penalty - either side of an Alvaro Morata header.

"Just like what is happening with us because every time we are having important players that get injured and missing important games". "They are there because they deserve it".

Free-scoring Liverpool blitzed Brighton 5-1 on the south coast with goals from Emre Can, a brace from Roberto Firmino, a late strike from Philippe Coutinho and a Lewis Dunk own goal. Son Heung-Min equalised midway through the first half but Spurs were reduced to 10 men when Davinson Sanchez was dismissed shortly after the restart. It will be good for the future.

Lukaku played a cute reverse pass into the area for Martial, who produced a superb, rubber-ankled flick round the corner, allowing Lingard to run clear, clipping a first-time shot in off the far post to make it to 2-0 for Manchester United. The midfielder will miss United's clash against league leaders Manchester City.
