Arteta gots his first victory as Arsenal defeats Manchester United


Arsenal starts the new year in style with a superb 2-0 victory over Manchester United, handing Mikel Arteta his first victory in charge of the Gunners.

Arsenal transformed from the blunt, directionless outfit of recent months into a high-intensity side by Arteta.

The first goal of the game was scored by Nicolas Pepe in the 8th minute of the game while Sokratis doubled from a close-range finish in the 42nd minute of the game to put the home side in control.

The win moves Arsenal to within three points of the top six in 10th place in the Premier League.
