Manchester United handed league leaders Arsenal their first defeat of the Premier League season, with Marcus Rashford's brace propelling them to a 3-1 victory at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils' difficult start to the campaign looks to be a thing of the past as Erik ten Hag's men reeled off their fourth win on the trot, with new signing Antony also getting his name on the scoresheet.

The action started early as Arsenal thought they had taken the lead after 12 minutes when Gabriel Martinelli fired home a delightful finish after a swift break.

However, the goal was ruled out thanks to VAR after it was shown Martin Odegaard fouled Christian Eriksen in the build up.

Instead, it was United who opened the scoring against the run of play after 35 minutes. After creating very little in dangerous areas, Antony fired home with what was his first real attempt.

The Brazilian was played in by Marcus Rashford on the left of the Arsenal box, before firing a tidy left-footed finish into the far corner for his first in a Unite shirt.

Arsenal began the second half on the front foot in search of an equaliser, and came close with two big chances.

First, Odegaard failed to connect with a Gabriel Jesus pass, and then Saka flashed a strike from a tight angle just wide of the post.

After Jesus clipped the crossbar, Arsenal finally levelled proceedings through Saka.

Odegaard sent a neat through ball on to the feet of Jesus, and Diogo Dalot's attempted interception fell to the feet of Saka, who calmly fired home from inside the penalty area.

Remarkably, Arsenal's efforts were quickly wasted as United restored their advantage minutes later.

With Arsenal playing a high line, Bruno Fernandes picked out Rashford, and he slotted past an onrushing Aaron Ramsdale.

Rashford capped off a marvellous performance with United's third in the 75th minute.

Fernandes and Eriksen broke forward with the Dane finding the Briton in the middle, who tucked home to send Old Trafford into a frenzy.

The goal ended Arsenal's hopes of a comeback, though Mikel Arteta's remain Premier League leaders, one point up on Manchester City and Tottenham.

As for United, the result leaves them just three points back of the Gunners.
