Some Manchester United fans react on Twitter following 3-1 loss away to Arsenal

Manchester United can all but kiss their chances of securing UEFA Champions League qualification goodbye following the 3-1 loss to Arsenal at the Emirates.

The Red Devils went into the game following a 4-0 humbling midweek at Anfield. Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane were restored to the lineup but it made little difference on the night. It took Arsenal just three minutes to go ahead thanks to a Nuno Tavares tap-in after David de Gea made a sensational save.

Eddie Nketiah looked to have doubled the home side’s lead in the 30th minute only for him to be adjudged offside. The joy was short-lived as Alex Telles fouled Bukayo Saka in the build-up, leading to Arsenal being awarded a penalty.

The youngster scored from the spot to hand the Gunners a 2-0 lead. A floated cross from Nemanja Matic saw Ronaldo reduce the deficit soon after. It was the Man United legend’s 100th Premier League goal for the club but his muted celebrations spoke volumes of the club’s predicament.

Man United had a brilliant chance to equalize in the second half after they were handed a penalty thanks to a Tavares handball. Bruno Fernandes showed that he was better off shouting at referees than stepping up when needed by missing the spot-kick.

A thunderbolt by Granit Xhaka in the 70th minute all but took the wind out of Man United’s sails, settling the tie. The performance, if anything, sums up our season that keeps going from bad to worse. We now look at how some fans reacted to the result on Twitter.

Understandably, they weren’t happy because this now means there is a very good chance that Erik ten Hag’s first season in Manchester will not see his team in the UCL.
