(Manchester United-Arsenal 3-2) There have been many classic compromises between Manchester United and Arsenal throughout history. Thursday’s game certainly fits that story.
A very controversial goal, the historic Cristiano Ronaldo with two goals and Martin Odegaard for better or worse were among the many components when Manchester United won against Arsenal at Old Trafford.
This was Michael Carrick’s third match as interim coach of the club. Now it is Ralph Rangnick who takes over the position of Manchester United manager, and after the match he joined the club their websites That Carrick decided to leave the Red Devils.
Carrick was the assistant to Ole Gunnar Solskjær from Norway who became club manager in 2018, and when Solskjær lost his job a week and a half ago, it was Carrick who took over as interim manager. He says it wasn’t easy to take over as a replacement for his former boss.
It’s not easy when you lose a manager. When there is someone like Olly, who is very respectful and likable, it is even more difficult. The players and the rest of the coaching staff have done well. There were three matches with approved results. Today was a good way to end, Carrick told Amazon Prime.
It wasn’t an easy decision, but honestly, I feel good and feel very happy. I told the guys about five minutes ago. They were a little shocked and surprised. He was a little emotional in the locker room.
My initial loyalty was a small factor, but there were many things that made this my decision.
I see a great future for him as a coach. He knows how to talk to players. If he gets the chance, he can become a good coach, Bruno Fernandez tells the BBC.
Michael Carrick did a very good job. Everyone has been waiting for Ralph Rangnick to become the savior – now he’s made and it’s time for delivery, says former Manchester United defender Patrice Evra at Amazon Prime studio.

It didn’t take more than a quarter of an hour of the classic match between Manchester United and Arsenal before a new moment came that will be remembered for years.
Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea was stamped out by his teammate Fred with a corner kick, and the Spaniards’ last chance was left in pain.
The ball landed in the return room of Emile Smith Rowe, and the young Arsenal player hit the ball into the net behind the lying De Gea. Referee Martin Atkinson did not manage to blow the situation before the ball crossed the goal line, until several minutes of confusion waited.
The video assistant referee looked at the situation, and after four minutes of waiting, the scoring was judged with massive protests from the Manchester United players.
“I don’t know,” Bruno Fernandes told Amazon when asked if Arsenal’s registration should be cancelled.
Usually when the goalkeeper falls we have to stop the match, but mistakes happen. Do not know whether it is the judge. If there is an error by the referee, it may happen.

Arsenal kept their lead until Bruno Fernandes equalized minutes before the end of the first half. In his 100th game for Manchester United, the Portuguese scored his first goal since September 11th.
After the break, the match continued at the same pace as the first half, and it took no more than seven minutes before Cristiano Ronaldo turned the game in favor of Manchester United.
The scorer got the ball into the penalty area and put it safely behind Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale. This was the 800th goal of Ronaldo in his professional career.
– this is unbelievable. Fernandez says he shows year after year that he wants to be the best.
But Old Trafford did not rejoice for long, because only a few minutes later Martin Odegaard made sure that there was a balance in the accounts again. The leaders of the Norwegian national team did what Ronaldo, most likely, turned a low pole into a goal, with the “wrong”, right legs.

A quarter of an hour later, Ødegaard was again embroiled in an awkward situation – this time with a negative sign. He became the scapegoat in many ways when Fred fell into his team’s penalty area, and after a VAR check, Atkinson concluded a penalty kick for the home team.

Cristiano Ronaldo stood and hit the ball in the middle of the goal. Ramsdale was criticized in the side to lead Manchester United 3-2.
Arsenal pressed for a draw, but Manchester United fell behind and took the three points with new coach Ralf Rangnick in the stands.
As expected, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (48) was greeted at Old Trafford as fans returned for the first time since kick-off.
Solskjaer was sent off after the 1-4 loss in the first leg against Watford, and that match was followed by two new away matches for Manchester United. First against Villarreal, then against Chelsea.
Thus, Thursday’s classic match against Arsenal is Manchester United’s first home game since Solskjaer left the club, and before the match started, the Norwegian was welcomed into the stands at Old Trafford.
Fans sang Solskjær’s name, before posting a large banner reading “20LEGEND” at Stretford End.
“Infuriatingly humble internet trailblazer. Twitter buff. Beer nerd. Bacon scholar. Coffee practitioner.”
