Manchester United were hosted by Arsenal in the fourth round of the English Football Association (FA) Cup.
Under their recently appointed Norwegian caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær, the Red Devils defeated the Gunners 3-1 and eliminated the latter from the rest of this competition.
Goals from Alexis Sanchez (31st), Jesse Lingard (33rd) and Anthony Martial (82nd) gifted high Flying United victory on the night with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang netting in the consolation goal for the Gunners in the 42nd minute.
Armenian national squad captain and Arsenal midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan is still recovering from his foot injury which he had sustained on December 19, 2018, and therefore he was not among the Arsenal roster for this match.
Man United have achieved their eighth consecutive win ever since Solskjær has taken helm, and this is a club record for a new manager.
