Manchester United fans optimistic despite loss to Arsenal

Manchester United fans would’ve been understandably frustrated with their 2-0 loss to Arsenal yet the majority appeared to be optimistic nonetheless.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men couldn’t follow up their historic win against PSG with three points at the Emirates which unfortunately sees them slide back down to fifth place.

The race for the top four has been relentless for United who were always chasing the rest of the pack and there’s now just eight games remaining.

Solskjaer watched on helplessly as David de Gea conceded, rather poorly, from Granit Xhaka’s swerving shot before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang converted from the penalty spot.

Many supporters felt the Gunners were a little lucky with their efforts, particularly the penalty but also felt their side should’ve been more clinical in front of goal.

The Red Devils never seemed to get going and things never seemed to go their way at a time their luck couldn’t afford to run out.

A win against Arsenal would’ve seen Ole’s men get level with Tottenham in third which would’ve given them a stronghold in the race for a top four spot.

Though there is still a few games to turn the tide again, Manchester United have to pick themselves up quickly as there’s time to sulk.
