Antony’s debut goal helps resurgent Manchester United sweep past Arsenal

Glamour, speed, skill, entertainment: Manchester United and Arsenal produced a riveting watch lit up by a goal for Antony on his debut, the Gunners’ sparkle, and a Marcus Rashford double that ended the visitors’ 100% Premier League record.In the final analysis, though, Mikel Arteta’s team had lost their way by the time Rashford scored his second – when taking the excellent Christian Eriksen’s pass in a breakaway – to kill them off in a contest that had a feel of cruiserweights hurtling at each other with zero respite. At the final whistle Arsenal remained leaders on 15 points while United rose to fifth place on 12, dreadful defeats in their opening two matches receding into the distance and their future, following this fourth consecutive victory, appearing ever brighter.
