Arsenal move above Man Utd as Solskjaer suffers first league defeat

While it is slightly peculiar that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is getting so much praise for a comeback when he also presided over the first-leg defeat that left United in a hole, it would also be very hard to ignore the squad pleading for him to be permanently appointed and the significantly improved atmosphere around the club.

Arsenal are back in the Top Four right now, relegating United to Fifth, and we are now just one point behind Tottenham, who simply can't win a game - and have the daunting task of a trip to Anfield coming up next.

Arsenal were quicker out of the blocks against a Manchester United side buoyed by the dramatic win over French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) in midweek.

Manchester United's Ashley Young has called for greater protection for players after his team's 2-0 Premier League defeat at Arsenal was disrupted by a fan running on to the pitch and shoving his team mate Chris Smalling.

- Spurs running out of steam? The defeat on Sunday was United's first in the league since Ole took over the interim role in December.

Game of Thrones returns for its eighth and final season , with the first episode premiering on HBO on April 14. Check back with Looper before the season 8 launch to learn what the final six episodes are titled.

Leno had an impressive game, making some key saves from Romelu Lukaku in particular to help preserve a clean sheet and see the Gunners move back into the top four. "We are going to play some hard games but it is important we are consistent".

Pochettino's men do have the slight relief of a three-week break now to regroup, but their next league game is a daunting one away to Liverpool and they also travel to title-chasing Manchester City next month.

According to The Sun, Solskjaer is set to stay on as permanent manager after the season ends, which has thrown Sanchez's United future into doubt.

Still, they can make the season a successful one, should they manage to achieve a top four spot and qualify for the Champions League next term.

"Tottenham, Arsenal [will finish in the top four]", Merson said on Sky Sports.
