Manchester United are back in the top four in the EPL after securing a morale-boosting 1-2 win over Arsenal at the Emirates on Saturday.

Both the hosts and visitors have endured a not too impressive season hitherto and were understandably desperate for victory to get their campaign back on track.

And while it was Arsenal that dominated play for the entire duration, it was the visitors that smiled away with maximum points on offer.

Amazingly, United’s only shot on target turned out to be the winner which came off the boots of Captain Wayne Rooney in the 85th minute.

United had luckily went ahead through an own-goal from Kieran Gibbs.

Even though Olivier Giroud marked his return with a strike to his name when he scored a 95th-minute goal, it was grossly inadequate for the Gunners to salvage anything from Saturday’s home tie.

Instead of garnering points, Arsenal’s injury worries only worsened with Jack Wilshere and keeper Szczesny suffering knocks.

In the light of the latest defeat for Arsene Wenger’s side, Arsenal are now eighth in the table and a whopping 15 points behind league leaders Chelsea.

In other games, Chelsea continued their fine start to the season with another win under their belt as they piped visiting West Brom 2-0.

With the win Chelsea have now gone seven points clear after Costa scored in the 11th and Oscar 25th minute.

However it was a sour weekend for Nigeria’s Victor Moses whose club Stoke City suffered a shock 1-2 loss to Burnley.

There was joy for Sammy Ameobi as Newcastle secured their sixth successive win beating QPR 1-0.

Manchester City came from behind and beat Swansea City 2-1.
