Arsenal vs Man United live score, updates, highlights as Nketiah and Saka goals cancelled out

Arsenal and Manchester United are the two in-form Premier League sides as they prepare for this huge meeting at the Emirates Stadium.

Both teams have 13 points from their past five league matches, either side of the World Cup, with United having sparked an outside chance at the title.

Derby wins against Tottenham and Manchester City respectively last weekend has boosted confidence even further for Mikel Arteta and Erik ten Hag despite the potential of a late surge of form from defending champions City.

United remain the only team to have beaten Arsenal in the league this season — can they do so again?

The Sporting News is providing live score updates, highlights and commentary of the match below.

Arsenal vs Man United live updates, highlights from Premier League match

87th min: Down the other end Eriksen carries the ball forward before getting his shot away and wins a corner. Arsenal clear and go on the break before Wan-Bissaka fouls Nketiah.

85th min: HUGE save from De Gea! The ball falls kindly for Nketiah from eight yards and he smashes it goalwards but the goalkeeper gets down quickly to deny him with his left hand.

84th min: Shaw gets a yellow card for a late tackle on Saka.

83rd min: Debutant Trossard is on for Martinelli.

80th min: Some desperate defending and some brilliant defending from United and Wan-Bissaka. The visitors are struggling to get the ball out of their box let alone their half. Arsenal still pushing.

78th min: Rashford goes down in the box under a challenge from Ramsdale when running through but referee Anthony Taylor isn’t interested. Ramsdale doesn’t look too impressed with his England teammate hitting the deck.

73rd min: Arsenal have had 73% possession in the last 10 minutes. They’re knocking on the door and the crowd are urging them to push on and get the winner.

70th min: Oh my! Saka almost scores a carbon copy of his first goal. He gets away from Shaw and then Eriksen and fires one into the far post and it kisses the woodwork. De Gea was left watching.

63rd min: Shaw gives Saka far too much space again and the attacker crosses into Nketiah but his goal-bound effort is deflected behind.

59th min: GOAL! Arsenal 2-2 Man United

Martinez equalises! Arsenal can’t clear their lines from a corner as Ramsdale spills it and the Argentine comes in with a flying header to loop the ball into the back of the net! Game on again!

57th min: Arsenal just need to settle a little bit here with United putting on a bit of pressure. 

52nd min: GOAL! Arsenal 2-1 Man United

Saka with a stunner! Who knew he had that in his locker?! Saka cuts in from the left and hits a powerful shot into the far corner that bounces just out of De Gea’s reach. A brilliant strike.

50th min: All Arsenal at the moment, much like the first half they’ve started well again. But they need to create some concrete chances and take them to avoid United producing a moment of magic again…

47th min: Antony picks up a yellow card after tripping Zinchenko.

We’re back underway! One change for Arsenal as Tomiyasu comes on for White at the back.


45th min: Half a chance for Arsenal as Martinelli finds space down the left and pulls it back to Zinchenko but the defender scuffs his shot and drags it wide of the far post.

42nd min: Arsenal’s back line are keeping Weghorst fairly quiet so far but the Dutchman is doing his bit with the pressing, plenty of runs to put pressure on the Arsenal defence.

35th min: Luke Shaw is having a tricky evening so far up against England teammate Saka. Another Arsenal corner but it’s a poor one and goes straight through everyone in the box.

29th min: Big save from Ramsdale to deny McTominay. Antony cuts in from the right to tee up the midfielder but Ramsdale is at full stretch to save his curled effort.

24th min: GOAL! Arsenal 1-1 Man United

Arsenal waste no time in replying as Nketiah equalises. Some brilliant build up play ends with Xhaka putting in a delicious teasing cross to the back post where Nketiah heads home from close range. Wan-Bissaka caught napping.

22nd min: That goal was the definition of against the run of play. Arsenal have responded well though. This time a well worked set-piece sees Martinelli fire just wide from the edge of the box.

17th min: GOAL! Arsenal 0-1 Man United

Rashford with a beauty! He picks the ball up in midfield, nutmegs Partey and then dribbles forward before unleashing a low, powerful shot from 20 yards out that Ramsdale has no chance in reaching. What a hit!

14th min: Saka has been quiet by his standards so far but whips in a dangerous cross from the right which Wan-Bissaka has to clear for a corner. 

10th min: Gabriel is fouled by Fernandes in the middle of the pitch and the latter is frustrated. The pair square up to each other before their teammates pull them apart. It’s getting fiery! Arsenal still dominating with United yet to properly make it into the final third.

6th min: Fernandes runs onto a through ball into the box and beats Ramsdale to it as he’s sent flying to the floor. But he was never going to reach the ball the other side and despite the Portuguese’s protests, no penalty is given.

2nd min: Arsenal are on it! Two early corners and Odegaard has already had a shot blocked. Partey also puts a shot wide from a cross at the near post.

We’re underway!

5 mins from KO: The teams make their way out at the Emirates Stadium. It’s absolutely packed. Even Sir Alex Ferguson and David Beckham have made the trip to the capital.

10 mins from KO: Wout Weghorst leads the line up front for United for the second time in five days. The new signing struggled to make much of an impact in his debut against Crystal Palace but gets the nod from Ten Hag again today. He managed just two goals and three assists with Burnley last season in the Premier League but The Sporting News has crunched the numbers on why he is actually a good fit for the Red Devils.

In other news, Erling Haaland has scored his fourth hat-trick of the season in Manchester City’s 3-0 win over Wolves. It means Arsenal sit just two points above City ahead of today’s crunch clash.

45 mins from KO: So the only change for United is Scott McTominay coming into the midfield to replace the suspended Casemiro. The Brazilian picked up a booking in the 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace on Wednesday night. Ten Hag has put his trust in the Scot with fellow Brazilian Fred on the bench. 

Arsenal remain unchanged and fans will be hoping to see new signing Trossard come off the bench in the second half.

1 hr from KO: The teams are in!

1hr 10 from KO: Remember, Arsenal have lost just once in the league this season and that came against United at Old Trafford. Marcus Rashford scored twice in the 3-1 win in September and his form has only improved since then.

Team news will be on the way in 10 minutes. Will we see Arsenal’s new signing Leandro Trossard thrown straight into the starting XI?

1hr 35 from KO: Arteta seems to be doing everything right at the moment and his work isn’t going unnoticed. Here’s what Ten Hag had to say about the Spaniard.

“I think in the Premier League there are many incredibly good coaches in this moment,” the Dutchman told Sky Sports.

“He [Arteta] is definitely one of them. What he’s doing, he’s the best in this moment because it’s really a big performance, it’s huge what he’s doing.

“He’s managing his team and they are so consistent, the most consistent team in the Premier League in this moment, playing incredible football. It’s fantastic.”

2 hrs from KO: Here we go, then. Premier League leaders Arsenal face Manchester United, the only team to beat them in the top flight this season, in a huge test of their burgeoning title credentials.
