Man Utd 1-1 Arsenal SPORTS REPORT


Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang cancelled out Scott McTominay's first-half goal with a 59th-minute strike at Old Trafford.
But the goal was initially ruled out for offside after one of referee Kevin Friend's assistants flagged for offside.
Aubameyang's goal - his eighth of the season - was eventually awarded after consultation with VAR.
The referee's assistant raised his flag to indicate Aubameyang was offside, with the United defence stopping, allowing the Arsenal forward to steer the ball into the net.

But VAR showed United defender Harry Maguire had in fact played Aubameyang onside and, after checking a replay of incident, ref Friend indicated the goal stood.
United boss Solskjaer confronted the fourth official once the goal was allowed to stand and appeared to be claiming ref Friend had already blown his whistle to stop the game.
But Solskjaer's protests counted for nothing as Arsenal's leveller was allowed to stand, depriving United of a much-needed win, as the Reds limped up to 10th and Arsenal into the top four.
It started as a pretty drab contest, with neither side managing a shot in the opening 27 minutes - the longest any Premier League match has gone this season without an attempt.
Chances for Andreas Pereira and Nicolas Pepe failed to threaten either keeper as the game looked to be staying deadlocked at the break.
David de Gea then pulled a great double save from first Aubameyang and then Matteo Guendouzi on the rebound, before United got their noses in front.
Marcus Rashford chased after Daniel James' loose cross before finding McTominay on the edge of the box who cracked one into the top corner.
Arsenal pressed in the second half and got themselves level with Aubameyang's controversial strike, before Bukayo Saka spurned a great chance to put themahead.
United harried and drove on in search of a winner, with Maguire seeing his effort saved, before McTominay had a free header go over.
A late chance came for Rashford, after David Luiz gave away a free kick on the edge of the box, but a good hand from Bernd Leno kept it out to ensure the points were shared.
