Marcos Rashford scored the only goal in the early minutes of the encounter to ensure the Red Devils toppled Arsenal, who play Manchester City later on Sunday, in the EPL standings.

Rashford had already missed a sitter, heading Luke Shaw’s cross wide from four yards out, before giving United a ninth-minute lead.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men remain unbeaten and the manager is presenting an increasingly compelling case to be named United’s manager.

This was the ninth victory from 10 games for Solskjaer and while it was not a performance full of the recent verve and vigour, Rashford’s winner on his 100th Premier League appearance lifted the side.

Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea have all stumbled against Claude Puel’s unpredictable Leicester in recent weeks and United had to withstand a second-half of constant pressure to maintain their manager’s outstanding record.
