Manchester United end Arsenal’s unbeaten streak.

Antony Matheus dos Santos

On Sunday, Antony scored on his Manchester United debut, as the Brazilian’s clinical strike and Marcus Rashford’s double inspired a 3-1 win that ended Arsenal’s unbeaten start to the Premier League season.

Ten Hag’s first two games as manager were humiliating defeats against Brighton and Brentford.
