Arsenal Player ratings
GK: Ramsdale -6/10-
Not much work to do
Failed to keep a clean sheet and make master class Saves.
RB: Cedric - 4/10 - Sancho wasn't particularly amazing but Cedric was still given the runaround. Very lucky not to have conceded a penalty in the first half.
CB: Ben White - 6/10 - Arsenal's calmest defender on the day but the bar wasn't high.
CB: Gabriel - 4/10 - Far too weak in the challenge and simply allowed Ronaldo to move in front of him for his first goal.
LB: Nuno Tavares - 5/10 - Great movement to sneak in behind the United defence for the opener. United targeted him and in the end he shot himself in the foot, producing a horrendous second-half display.
CM: Mohamed Elneny - 6/10 - Pressed plenty but didn't panic. Didn't offer much creativity either, mind.
CM: Granit Xhaka - 7/10 - Panicked a little bit more but the pay-off was the occasional decent pass through the lines. Brilliant strike to seal the win.
RM: Bukayo Saka - 8/10 - Played a crucial role in both goals and had Telles on skates.
AM: Martin Odegaard - 7/10 - Picked out some clever balls through United's leaky defence.
LM: Emile Smith Rowe - 4/10 - Played on the periphery and should have made more of Dalot's nightmare.
CF: Eddie Nketiah - 7/10 - Energetic and a live-wire while he was unlucky not to have found the net himself.
SUB: Gabriel Martinelli (64' for Smith Rowe) - 5/10
SUB: Rob Holding (74' for Saka) - 5/10
SUB: Takehiro Tomiyasu (90' for Cedric) - N/A
Manchester United Player ratings
GK: David de Gea - 6/10 - As is usually the case in this fixture, De Gea kept the scoreline respectable.
RB: Diogo Dalot - 2/10 - A tragedy from start to finish. All over the place and never knew where to stand.
CB: Victor Lindelof - 5/10 - Was to United what White was to Arsenal - composed, but it didn't really count for much.
CB: Raphael Varane - 3/10 - A nightmare opening but wasn't as much of a liability thereafter. Still pretty bad, however.
LB: Alex Telles - 2/10 - At fault for Arsenal's two goals and was generally fortunate that Saka showed a bit of mercy.
CM: Scott McTominay - 6/10 - Competed well physically but was technically below the levels of Xhaka and Elneny.
CM: Nemanja Matic - 7/10 - One of his better days, enjoying the midfield battle.
RM: Anthony Elanga - 5/10 - Got into dangerous areas but lacked the finishing touches.
AM: Bruno Fernandes - 2/10 - Found it hard to even complete the basics, crucially including penalty-taking. Fortunate to have escaped a red card for a petulant tackle late on.
LM: Jadon Sancho - 5/10 - Played the game at walking pace but still gave Cedric problems. Needed to contribute
CF: Cristiano Ronaldo - 7/10 - Dropped deep to link play well and was a menace in the penalty area.
SUB: Marcus Rashford (77' for Matic) - N/A
SUB: Jesse Lingard (77' for Elanga) - N/A
SUB: Juan Mata (84' for Fernandes) - N/A
