Bukayo Saka and Granit Xhaka were prominent as Arsenal beat Manchester United 3-1 at home to boost their top-four hopes at the end of this season. Both Saka and Xhaka found the back of the net as they help fire the Gunners to an important win in the Premier League as they try to reach their target of a top-four spot at the end of the season.

Arsenal made a bright start when controversial Portuguese fullback Nuno Tavares scored for the home team inside three minutes after Saka capitalised on the uncertain defending from the Manchester United duo of Alex Telles and Raphael Varane to get his shot away with David De Gea saving it in the United goal before Tavares scored the rebound from close range. Saka then scored the second goal just after the hour mark from the penalty spot following the foul on him by Brazil international Alex Telles. Saka now has 11 goals in the Premier League this season and he's on course to make the England squad for the World Cup 2022 tournament in Qatar. The potential World Cup 2022 tournament participant has been one of the best young players in the Premier League this season.

Two minutes after the second Arsenal goal, Manchester United were handed a lifeline with Cristiano Ronaldo finishing expertly to reach 100 goals. Ronaldo is a certainty for Portugal as far as the squad for the World Cup 2022 tournament in Qatar is concerned. His goal in the 34th minute off the assist by Serbian midfielder NemanjaMatic ensured that Arsenal went into the interval with a 2-1 lead.
In the second half, Bruno Fernandes missed a penalty before a thunderbolt from Swiss midfielder Granit Xhaka wrapped up the points for the Gunners with 20 minutes left in the clock.
Arsenal are back in fourth spot with the home win over Manchester United. They have two more points than North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in fifth spot with five games left to play for both teams in this season's Premier League campaign.
