The Arsenal fans certainly enjoyed the performance and the win and there was another moment when the Emirates Stadium fans really enjoyed themselves.

It was the introduction of Harry Maguire.

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has not included Maguire in the starting line-up against Arsenal.

Ten Hag was always unlikely to sign the England centre-back.

However, the United boss felt compelled to bring Maguire onto the pitch.
