Arsenal and Manchester United were in Premier League action yesterday, Arsenal against Wolves and Man United against Southampton, both teams had very contrasting results as United won 9:0 while Arsenal were beaten 2:1.
Manchester United were in fine form as they scored 9 goals past Southampton, although they were helped by a red card shown to Alexandre Jankewitz of Southampton two minutes into the first half.
The second half was more of the same as Man United scored 5 goals to make it 9:0, the game's score line is now the joint most in a single premier league home game.
It was a wonderful win for Manchester United and another clean sheets for David De Gea, the United goalkeeper has now kept back to back clean sheets.
Arsenal went into the game in fine form and they were boosted by the return of Aubameyang and Bukayo Saka to the starting XI, and the gunners were in fine form in the first 45 minutes as Nicolas Pepe scored in the 32nd minute to give Arsenal the lead.
The gunners were hard done by a harsh red card shown to David Luiz for seemingly fouling Jose Willian Jose in the box, referee Craig Pawson awarded Wolves a penalty, Ruben Neves scored to make it 1:1 at the break.
Things fell apart for Arsenal in the second half as Pedro Neto assisted Joao Mourinho to make it 2:1 in favour of Wolves, things got worst for Arsenal when Bernd Leno rushed off his line and committed a hand ball, he was immediately shown a red card.
With Arsenal down to 9 men the gunners were unable to equalize and so suffered their first defeat in the EPL since the turn of the year.
Bernd Leno must be really disappointed as he failed to keep a clean sheet and also got red carded making him just the second Arsenal goalkeeper to be shown a red card in the EPL, he now shares that record with David Seaman.
SUMMARY OF THE GOLDEN GLOVE RACE.
Both De Gea and Bernd Leno are in the running to win the Golden Glove award, the award is given to the goalkeeper with the most clean sheets in a single Premier League season.
After he kept a clean sheet in the game against Southampton, the Spanish shot stopper now has 8 clean sheets, he will need to maintain a steady clean sheets record if he is to win the award.
The Arsenal goalkeeper will be feeling disappointed after his latest showing, but with over 15 games left to go he can still get enough clean sheets to win the award, but he must first serve his one game suspension for his foul in the Wolves game.
De Gea is placed 4th same as Bernd Leno as they both have the same number of clean sheets, Ederson Moares of Man City leads the race with 12 clean sheets, he is trailed by Emi Martinez of Aston Villa who has 10 clean sheets and Edouard Mendy of Chelsea who has 9.
