Gary Neville pinpoints EXACT moment Arsenal threw away chance of beating Man Utd at Old Trafford
GARY NEVILLE said Arsenal’s triple substitute against Manchester United cost them the game at Old Trafford.
Gunners manager Mikel Arteta brought on Emile Smith Rowe, Fabio Vieira and Eddie Nketiah on with just over 15 minutes to go.
Martin Odegaard, Sambi Lokonga and Oleksandr Zinchenko all gave way for the change.
But three minutes later, United went on a counter attack which was finished off by Marcus Rashford for 3-1.
Looking back on the triple sub, Neville it was a “kitchen sink” moment for Arsenal, which left his team exposed.
The United legend argued with around 20 minutes to go, and the away side playing better, they had time to get back into the game.
But the decision to take three players on left Arsenal out of shape and later two goals down.
United’s new £85million signing Antony opened the scoring before half time to cap off a perfect debut.
Bukayo Saka later levelled in the second half with the game all to play for until Rashford turned the game on its head.
His double condemned Arsenal to their first defeat of the season and gave United another big win, following victory over Liverpool.

Rashford told Sky Sports: “It is always a big game against Arsenal, especially as they have had such a good start to the season.
“It was a big test for us today. We showed up and stood up to the challenge.
“We can be proud if ourselves. It is good to get into a rhythm.”
