  • 90'

    CHANCE! Arsenal push forward and the ball is played towards the right byline for Mkhitaryan to cut back for Torreira. The Uruguayan strikes first-time, but his effort is saved by De Gea before Mkhitaryan is flagged for offside after brilliantly scoring.

  • 90'

    Full time at Old Trafford and it ends with the score at 2-2. Arsenal took the lead on two occasions but were guilty of falling asleep after scoring both times as United responded in no time at all. It was a great game with a draw arguably the fair result.

  • 89'

    The pace of the game seems to have taken it's toll on the players as we head towards the full time whistle. The match has slowed down with both teams struggling to create a late chance.

  • 86'

    The yellow card is out the way of Torreira for a late challenge on Herrera.

  • 85'

    SHOT! Herrera intercepts in the Arsenal half before laying the ball off for Rashford. He turns before looking to strike from around 30 yards out. The effort is dipping and swerving which proves challenging for Leno, but he gathers on the second attempt.

  • 79'

    As we head into the last 10 minutes it's still all to play for at Old Trafford. Both sides are pressing for a winner in what's been an end-to-end second half, but will either be able to snatch the winning goal?

  • 77'

    Substitution for Man United as Pogba replaces Lingard.

  • 75'

    SAVE! Arsenal break forward after a few waves of United attacks. The ball is played to Aubameyang on the left and he drifts inside before striking towards the far corner, but De Gea does well to get across and make a good save.

  • 72'

    CHANCE! Kolasinac works the ball well down the left flank before playing a cross towards the near post for Mkhitaryan and the Armenian misses the target with the first-time strike from close range.

  • 71'

    SAVE! Arsenal break down the left before the ball is crossed in low for Aubameyang. He shoots from close range, but De Gea comes out to close down the shot brilliantly and make an excellent save.

  • 69'

    GOAL! Man United respond from the kickoff! Rojo goes long to Lukaku and Arsenal make a complete mess of it at the back which allows Lingard to run through for a simple tap in. 2-2.

  • 68'

    GOAL! Rojo gives the ball away cheaply to Lacazette and he breaks with Mkhitaryan. The two play a one-two which sees the Frenchman get into the box and looking to shoot only for Rojo to make a recovery tackle which sees the ball go into his own net. 2-2.

  • 65'

    Substitution for Arsenal as Lacazette comes on to replace Iwobi.

  • 64'

    Substitution for Man United as Martial is forced off with what looks to be a hamstring problem and he's replaced by Lukaku.

  • 62'

    CHANCE! Kolasinac is played into the left side of the box by Iwobi and has a great chance to either pick out the pass in the middle or strike at goal, but he chooses the former only for Smalling to make a vital intervention.

  • 59'

    SHOT! Man United move the ball quickly before it's played towards the left side of midfield for Rojo. He strikes from around 25 yards and Leno tips it over to concede a corner, which comes to nothing in the end.

  • 57'

    Man United break forward after Rashford did well to hold the ball up before releasing Dalot in behind down the right flank. The Portuguese fullback takes too long to deliver into the box, however, as Arsenal get men back and force it out for a corner.

  • 55'

    There's a break in play now as Torreira is down with an injury. He receives treatment and looks to be fine to continue.

  • 52'

    Man United win a corner after some good play from Rashford. He delivers into the box and Leno comes out to punch. It goes as far as Dalot, who delivers into the box, but it's just too high for Bailly to get a solid head on it.

  • 49'

    Arsenal have started the second half brightly with a sustained period of pressure in the Man United third of the pitch, but the hosts do well to stop the Gunners from getting in behind and creating a chance.

  • 46'

    We're back underway for the second half! Arsenal make one change at the break as Ramsey is forced off through injury with Mkhitaryan replacing him.

  • 45'

    Half time at Old Trafford and it remains all square at the break with the score at 1-1. It's been an exciting half of football with both sides keen to get forward. Arsenal took the lead through Mustafi, but not for long as Martial scored 4 minutes later.

  • 42'

    Herrera gives the ball away poorly in midfield which sees Aubameyang looking to break forward, but he's cynically pulled back by Matic and the Serbian is shown a yellow card.

  • 41'

    Another yellow card as it's two apiece now with Bellerin shown a yellow card for a foul in midfield.

  • 40'

    It's the third yellow card in as many minutes now as Lingard is booked for a challenge on Torreira in midfield.

  • 39'

    SHOT! Rashford plays the free kick towards the edge of the box where Rojo strikes at goal. His effort is well-blocked before Rojo recklessly slides in on Guendouzi to try and win the rebound. The Argentinian is booked for his efforts.

  • 38'

    The referee has the yellow card out for the first time this evening as Mustafi is booked for bringing down Rashford on the left win.

  • 37'

    Arsenal are forced into an early change after Rob Holding is forced off with an injury. Lichtsteiner comes on to replace him.

  • 35'

    SHOT! Arsenal break forward through a good run from Ramsey towards the edge of the United box. He has options on either side but chooses to shoot at goal instead. It takes a deflection off a Man United defender and goes a few yards wide of goal.

  • 30'

    GOAL! It's Rojo who ends up striking at goal from the free kick. His effort is saved by Leno before Herrera gets onto the rebound and passes into the middle where Martial arrives to smash the ball home. 1-1.

  • 29'

    Manchester United look to respond quickly. Martial dribbles in from left midfield and is brought down on the edge of the Arsenal area by Guendouzi. Rashford is eyeing up the free kick.

  • 26'

    GOAL! Arsenal take the lead! Torreira delivered a corner into the box and Mustafi got away from Smalling to have a free header in the box. He heads straight at De Gea, but the ball goes through his hands and Herrera can't clear off the line. 0-1.

  • 24'

    Arsenal are looking far better now with Man United needing to make a few last ditch tackles in the last few minutes. There's been some good football on show, but still the sides continue to struggle to create a goal-scoring chance.

  • 21'

    Arsenal pass the ball beautifully in midfield before Ramsey picks out Kolasinac with a pass in behind the United defence. He crosses from the byline and Smalling makes a mess of the initial clearance, but United eventually clear.

  • 17'

    Arsenal win a corner after Iwobi managed to get in behind Bailly on the left wing before the Ivorian recovered well. Torreira delivers into the box, but it's easily dealt with as De Gea comes out to collect.

  • 14'

    SHOT! Man United win the ball in the Arsenal half and it allows Martial to dribble towards the edge of the box before looking to strike with his weaker left foot, but the effort lacks power and Leno can gather with ease.

  • 10'

    Arsenal have grown into the game now. Both teams are looking to press forward in search of an early goal, but neither side has been able to penetrate the respective defences as yet.

  • 6'

    SHOT! Man United break forward in numbers. Rashford is found on the left flank and cuts inside before looking to strike at goal, but his effort is straight at Leno and the German makes an easy save.

  • 4'

    Man United have come out of the blocks flying in the opening minutes with plenty of pressure inside of the Arsenal have. No shots as yet, but it's a promising start for the Red Devils.

    Man United are without a win in three Premier League matches and make a host of changes to the side that drew against Southampton on the weekend. Notably Lukaku and Pogba drop to the bench as Rashford will likely lead the line.

    Arsenal are in a golden patch of form and will be looking for another big win after beating Spurs in the NLD over the weekend. They make two changes to the side that started in that game as Guendouzi and Ramsey come in for Mkhitaryan and Xhaka.
