Marcus Rashford then broke away to restore the Red Devils’ lead.

With his team once again searching for a leveller, Arteta chose to make a triple change after 74 minutes.

Emile Smith Rowe, Eddie Nketiah and Fabio Vieira replaced Martin Odegaard, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Albert Sambi Lokonga, giving Arsenal a much more attacking setup.

However, they conceded shortly, with Christian Eriksen setting up Rashford to seal all three points for the home side.

Speaking on The Overlap Fan Debate Xtra, Neville said: “I was really surprised particularly coming through the Pep Guardiola school.

“Pep just chases a game the same way, all the time. He will just continue to play the same way, same methodology.
