Manchester United 2 – Arsenal 1
Arsene Wenger’s final match at Old Trafford as Arsenal boss ended in defeat.
Man United left it until the dying moments of the match before scoring their crucial second against Arsenal.

Marouane Fellaini came off the bench to head home an injury time winner for Jose Mourinho.
Chelsea & Romelu Lukaku
Man United’s win against Arsenal came at a cost.
Belgian international striker Romelu Lukaku was forced out the game early in the second half.
Lukaku was injured in a challenge with Arsenal debutant Konstantinos Mavropanos.
The forward hobbled out the game in obvious discomfort.
Man United close out their season with an FA Cup final clash against Chelsea.
There’s now a doubt whether Lukaku will be fit for the Chelsea game. Mourinho commented after Arsenal:
[Lukaku] wants to play all the time. For him to say immediately [he wanted to] change, it’s because he couldn’t play. But it’s three more weeks until the final so let’s see [if he will be fit].
Will Lukaku play another Premier League match this season? That seems doubtful following his injury against the Gunners.
Man United are back in action on Friday night away at Brighton. After that the Red Devils face West Ham and Watford to close out the campaign.
United are set to finish the season as runners-up to Man City. They have a five point lead over Liverpool in the table.
