Man Utd 3-2 Arsenal LIVE RESULT: Cristiano Ronaldo nets winning penalty and 800th goal but goes off injured

CRISTIANO RONALDO has netted a brace to put United in front against Arsenal.

But there will be some concerns after the Portugal captain was forced off injured late in the game.

Emile Smith Rowe put the Gunners ahead early with the most bizarre of goals.

With David de Gea down injured, the midfielder fired the ball into an empty net.

And referee Martin Atkinson failed to blow his whistle before the ball crossed the line so was ordered by VAR to give a goal.

Bruno Fernandes then equalised for the Red Devils on the stroke of half time.

Ronaldo then netted his 800th goal to put United ahead to the delight of the Stretford end before his former Real Madrid team-mate Odegaard instantly equalised.

However a clumsy challenge from the Norwegian on Fred saw the Portugal captain earn a penalty to make it 801 career goals.

    FT: MAN UTD 3-2 ARSENAL

    Manchester United won an absolute thriller against Arsenal at Old Trafford.

    The Gunners opened the scoring with one of the most controversial goals in Premier League history after just 13 minutes.

    David de Gea got hurt when Fred inadvertently stepped on his heel during a corner-kick and Emile Smith Rowe noticed the net open so he fired a shot from the edge of the box.

    After a long VAR consultation, referee Martin Atkinson awarded the goal to the north Londoners.

    United were furious but equalised just a minute before half-time when Jadon Sancho broke from the left and found Fred, who redeemed himself with a brilliant flick towards Bruno Fernandes, who scored on his 100th appearance for the club.

    The hosts turned things around on 52 minutes when the visitors left plenty of space open downt he right and that allowed Marcus Rashford to set Cristiano Ronaldo up for his 800th career goal.

    But Mikel Arteta's men responded just two minutes later when Alex Telles forgot Gabriel Martinelli down the right flank and the forward passed to Martin odegaard in the box from where he equalised.

    Odegaard, though, proved to be uite a tragic figure as he fouled Fred inside his own box and referee Atkinson piointed at the spot after checking with the VAR monitor.

    Ronaldo beat Aaron Ramsdale with a composed finish that gave United a huge victory
