C’Ronaldo Passes 800 Goals In ManU Win Over Arsenal
Manchester United came from behind to beat Arsenal in a memorable match that featured two crucial VAR decisions. Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 800th career goal before converting a penalty winner.
Smith, Emile While United goalkeeper David de Gea lay on the ground, ostensibly wounded, with his back to the game, Rowe scored from the edge of the area.
De Gea had collapsed after colliding with and being stepped on by his own teammate Fred, according to the inevitable VAR check, and referee Martin Atkinson awarded the goal.
A minute before the break, Bruno Fernandes leveled the score after finishing a beautiful play featuring Jadon Sancho and Fred, setting up a frantic second half.
Ronaldo gave United the lead when he swiped home a cross from Marcus Rashford, but Martin Odegaard equalized with a well-taken goal. After two wins and a draw under interim manager Michael Carrick, United are now three points behind Arsenal in fourth position.
Carrick, who has been a stand-in for the last three games, announced his departure from the club, where he has been a member since 2006, first as a player and then as a coach.
