Arsenal inflict first domestic defeat on Solskjaer to surge into top four

Arsenal inflict first domestic defeat on Solskjaer to surge into top four

"We have one match in hand, so we have to be confident". The referee will be disappointed when he sees it as I don't think it is a penalty.

However, he has only started a total of eight games in the English top flight and has struggled to find consistent form since his move from Arsenal just over a year ago. The win puts Arsenal back into fourth place, two points ahead of United, and handed Solskjaer his first league loss since taking over as United manager in December.

With their other avenue to the Champions League, winning the Europa League, increasingly uncertain after the Rennes humiliation, there is little room left for error.

"We must be calm, be patient, continue improving and we know, like on Thursday, one match can change a lot with one red card, one goal".

"We would like to apologise to Chris and Manchester United, and are pleased that the individual was apprehended and arrested".

"It has been fantastic so far but today is the lowest we have been because we lost and we missed the chance to put pressure on Spurs", said Solskjaer, who was brought down to earth after United's astonishing midweek Champions League triumph at Paris St Germain.

Manchester United stopper David De Gea has been mercilessly mocked on social media after his failure to stop Granit Xhaka's swerving 25-yard strike in his side's 2-0 Premier League defeat at Arsenal.

Antonio Brown blocks Bills trade as Steelers cornered into lowering price
Late Thursday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said the Steelers were close to finishing a deal to send Brown to the Buffalo Bills . Past year with Pittsburgh, Brown caught 104 passes and added 15 touchdowns for 1,297 yards.

Solskjaer said: "We are disappointed with the result but looking at the performance, you can not say it was a game we deserved to lose".

"We have had a new manager come in with new ideas and it has been a season of trying to adapt to certain things that he wants from us and sometimes it has come off and sometimes it hasn't - it is a working process", Ramsey told Sky Sports.

It was United who created the first big opening of the match as Luke Shaw whipped in an inviting ball which Lukaku attacked but his header bounced off the crossbar before Paul Pogba's follow up was blocked.

However, there was no turnaround this time to leave the Norwegian with plenty of work to do just to qualify for next season's Champions League. They have won most of the games they have played and they look like a better team on the pitch.

"Being competitive like today for 90 minutes can give us a stronger mentality".

"I thought we created some great, great chances and we just didn't take them".

"Against this team, to take this confidence and three points in the table gets us in a good position for our target".
