By Canadian Press Solskjaer’s unbeaten EPL start at United ended by Arsenal Mar 12 2019

Chelsea have a game in hand, against Brighton, and sit three points behind Arsenal and one adrift of United in the quest for that final Champions League place.

"When you see the boys work as hard as they do, the attitude they show in training - today we were lethargic in the first 10-15 minutes, did not have the zip and we did not take the chances". We created more chances today than in the cup when we played them.

The 46-year-old has had an astounding run since being named temporary manager on December 19, following the sacking of the struggling Jose Mourinho, notching 14 wins, drawing two and losing just two of his first 18 games.

He noted that his team managed to finish the game without any setbacks, adding that they would be ready both physically and mentally for their next game against Wolves in the FA Cup quarter-final action on Saturday. Then you look back at the performance and you can't say this was a game we deserved the lose.

Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno enjoyed another fine display and did well to keep out Lukaku on two occasions, with Gunners head coach Unai Emery pleased with the progress he is witnessing.

"I don't think that was a penalty in a month of Sundays, but they great the rub of the break". We can feel very proud of all our players.

The Arsenal fans - who were in good form throughout - were chanting that they are coming for their arch rivals Spurs and the Gunner's boss was asked if he believed they could catch them and he said: "Yes we are positive".

Also standing out was Granit Xhaka who, after giving us the lead, gave the sort of midfield performance we have been crying out for from him, with him putting himself about in the centre of the park and providing defensive cover when needed.

Just a few weeks ago Spurs were talking about being genuine title contenders but they've taken just one point from their last four matches to fall away from the leaders and are now facing a fight to stay in the top four.
