Arsenal FC cruised to a 3-0 win over Manchester United to climb up to 2nd in the Premier League, two points behind Manchester City.
The Gunners started the game in breathtaking fashion, scoring thrice in the opening 20 minutes as Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil ran-riot against a timid Red Devils’ defence.
Arsenal FC started the game brightly, dominating possession in the early exchanges and scored when Alexis Sanchez flicked a Mesut Ozil cross with his back-heel. The Gunners doubled their lead only minutes later, when Ozil stabbed home a Theo Walcott pass into the bottom corner.
Arsenal FC looked like they could score, every time they enter Manchester United’s half and Sanchez scored his second of the night, unleashing an unstoppable drive into the top corner from the edge of the box after jinking past a Matteo Darmian challenge. The game was put to bed then and even though there were a couple of very good chances for both the teams, neither could convert.
Fans hailed Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez’ incredible performance in the demolition of Manchester United.

They said Ozil’s not that type of player, he doesn’t dominate in such *obvious* ways. He’s turned into Roy Keane here
