Comments:

League position: 8th Manchester United were now without a win in four consecutive games in the Premier League for the first time since May 2017. After seven games, the Red Devils had now conceded more goals at Old Trafford in the Premier League this season (ten) as they did in the entire 2017-18 season (nine in 18 games). Anthony Martial became the second United player to score a goal in the Premier League on his birthday (also Wayne Rooney against Arsenal on 24 October 2004). Manchester United had now conceded 900 goals in the Premier League (played 1,015, scored 1,948).

Comments:

League position: 5th Arsenal had still yet to lead at half-time in a game in the Premier League so far in this season (played 15) but no team had scored as many goals in the second-half as the Gunners (25). The Gunners were now unbeaten in their last 13 games in the Premier League (won nine) and 20 games in all competitions (won 15). Granit Xhaka missed this game due to suspension so ending a run of 65 consecutive appearances in the Premier League.
