Arsenal players claim Lingard celebration motivated them to beat United

Earlier, reported that Arsenal hand Manchester United their first Premier League defeat since the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solakjaer in December 2018. Superb performance! Brilliant result! He tagged the location of the Emirates Stadium as "Dancefloor", as he posted a picture of his moonwalk.

Arsenal moved back in to the top four with an impressive 2-0 victory over Manchester United on Sunday afternoon with Granit Xhaka opening the scoring in the first half before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sealed the win from the penalty spot after the break.

"In the first 15, 20 minutes we were too slow and never put them under pressure", he said.

"When you see it on the TV and you hear the music it is something special".

With just four points separating third from sixth, the race for Champions League qualification is going to be extremely tight but Arsenal are in a strong position as they don't have to play any of their top-six rivals during their final eight league games. Hopefully we will be ready for Wolves in the FA Cup next week.

Spanish boss Unai Emery took over Arsenal in the summer, replacing Arsene Wenger who had been in charge for 22 years.

Romelu Lukaku and Fred both hit the woodwork for the visitors, while goalkeeper Bernd Leno made saves to deny Lukaku, Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford.

Speaking after the match Emery said: "I'm very proud of our players". We played well but they were always unsafe on the counter-attack and today with five at the back we were more compact.

"Above all, I want to say thank to you to our supporters because they helped us a lot and we can create a big atmosphere like yesterday for the next matches".

At the moment, I think we are playing confidently in each match and today we showed everybody that. "The manager gave me the time and when I got the chance, I played good, so he said, "you will stay in goal".

"Our goalkeeper is very important and sometimes the goalkeeper can save us and today I'm very proud of his work", he submitted.
