Comments:

League position: 2nd Manchester United had now won all 20 games when they had scored the opening goal so far in this Premier League season. Marouane Fellaini’s goal was the 12th by a Red Devils substitute in this Premier League season; more than any other team. Henrikh Mkhitaryan became the first player to score for and against Manchester United in the Premier League in the same season.

Comments:

League position: 6th Arsenal had now lost six consecutive away games in the top division for the first time since a run of seven defeats from October 1965 to January 1966. It is also the first time that they had lost their opening six away games in the top division of a year since 1925. The average age of Arsenal's starting XI (24 years and 67 days) was their youngest for a Premier League game since 28 August 2011 in the 8-2 defeat at Manchester United (24 years and 65 days). Konstantinos Mavropanos became the 200th player to be handed their Gunners debut by manager Arsène Wenger on his last visit to Old Trafford.
