Declan Rice and Gabriel Jesus drove the Gunners to a dramatic stoppage-time victory, capping off an incredible match.

The game appeared to be heading to a draw after a penalty for a foul on Kai Havertz was reversed after a pitchside review before VAR ruled out replacement Alejandro Garnacho’s late winner for straying offside.

Ten Hag attributed United’s defeat on a variety of refereeing decisions, claiming that “everything went against us.”

“The performance was alright from us,” the Dutchman told Sky Sports. I think we played a pretty nice game, but everything went against us, therefore we didn’t win.

“To win the game, we needed a little more luck.” The goal by Alejandro Garnacho was not offside. It was the incorrect angle.

“Then it was a penalty on [Rasmus] Hojlund, and then we conceded a goal because of a foul on Jonny Evans.” It’s very obvious and clear.

“You can argue that you should finish your chances and not allow a goal after leading 1-0. All of this is true, but I was pleased with my performance.”

Former Premier League referee Mike Dean told Sky Sports about the penalty incident involving Hojlund: “I don’t think that’s a pen.” I believe it is simply strong defending.

“They’re both tussling for it, and his [Gabriel’s] arms are there, but if you look at it from another angle, Hojlund has his left arm in his grasp, and he’s kind of pulling the defender down.” That decision would make me very delighted.”
