Arsenal match-winner Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was delighted with the contribution of his teammates in the 1-0 defeat of Manchester United at Old Trafford.

The Gunners dominated large chunks of the game on Sunday and finally got their breakthrough in the 69th minute.

Hector Bellerin was brought down in the penalty area by Paul Pogba to gift Arsenal a penalty.

Aubameyang converted the spot-kick and that eventually proved to be the difference between the sides.

This win is Arsenal’s third of the season, and it moves them up to eighth in the table.

Speaking after the game, Aubameyang told Sky Sports: "It was a very tough night but I’m really happy because the team did very well. It’s been a long time since we won here.

“We knew we had to score after having opportunities in the first-half and then we had the penalty. We work a lot at our penalties in training so we are pretty confident.

“The team did a great job. Everyone was giving their best that’s why we won. We knew since the beginning that we had to trust the process. Mikel [Arteta] is bringing something very nice and we have to follow.”
