Manchester United suffered a 0-1 defeat to Arsenal at home soil on Sunday, following the penalty score by Pierre Emerick Aubameyang at the 69 minute, which awarded the Gunners first win at Old Trafford since 2006.

The game went in favour of Mikel Arteta’s men in the first half but their lucky score felt at the 68 minute when Paul Pogba fouled Hector Bellerin inside the danger zone.

But as the rivalry between the two sides defines, home defeat has to be explained as Pogba narrates.

"My mistake, I shouldn't do that. I have to be better in the box defensively. When you run forward and back, a player runs behind you.

"When you get in the box, you have to be… not cleverer – in French, the word is lucid. I don't know the word in English but I have to be fresher in the box, on my feet.

"Details made us lose the game and we have to be better. We have to do better with the ball because we weren't dangerous with the ball today.

"We didn't create chances, as we should, and we didn't win at home. That's what we need to do. We need to win at home, you know?"

This is yet another home league defeat for Ole Gunner Solskjaer men, their third this season.
