Playing with Martial and Cavani is proving to not be a good idea for United. Lacazette is now the main man up front for Arsenal, striking the post from a free kick best chance of the match. Both sides cannot be accused of lacking ambition here, the finishing particularly from Cavani was poor. David Luiz was uncharacteristically disciplined in defence, he resisted his natural need to join the attack leaving the defense exposed. Rashford was poor for United, particularly his decision making when occupying dangerous positions on the right side of attack.
The goalless draw was not what the doctor ordered for the two sides. United falling three points adrift of Man City having played a game less. This brings the likes of Liverpool and Leicester back into the title picture. Arsenal with European ambitions lose ground on top 6.
