In the 7th minute of tonight’s mammoth clash between rivals Arsenal and Manchester United, the Gunners took the lead after some exceptional work by Sead Kolasinac.
The often criticised left-back galloped down the left flank before laying the ball off to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Kolasinac then made a brilliant run into space to pick up the ball in the box.
The Bosnian star drilled a low cross into the box which was deflected into Nicolas Pepe’s path by Victor Lindelof. The Arsenal forward tucked the ball into the back of the net with a tidy first-time finish.
Take a look at the Ivorian’s opener below:
