PEEP! PEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEEP! That then, is very much that. 

Manchester United 2 - 1 Arsenal

Arsene Wenger's final trip to Old Trafford ends very much the way his Premier League career with Arsenal is ending. With a whimper.

Wenger's youngsters played superbly - outplayed United for large parts, especially in and around the Mkhitaryan goal - but the score is what the score is. Jose Mourinho's magnificent record vs Wenger continues. 

That's all from me, Anirudh Menon. Thank you for reading

Toodle-ooo!
...
94' Martial dances his way down the touchline, past Welbeck, past Bellerin... and then wins a corner off Willock. Pogba tries to keep it in the corner... 
...
Of course it happened in Fergie Time. Jose Time, now, as it were. 
...
OH! WHAT A HEADER! Young plays a lovely ball into the box, Fellaini jumps highest - wins the header, with the back of his head, and it loops in. Oh, Arsene
...
92' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! FELLAINI!
...
90' Four minutes to be added on. Ashley Young wins a corner.... Sanchez will keep it in play...
...
89' Pogba looks to play in Rashford with another brilliant ball, but Chambers reads it
...
88' OH!!! OFFSIDE!!!! From that freekick, Pogba romps forward, plays it out to Martial. The Frenchman stops, cuts back and curls a peach of a ball into the far post where Fellaini smacks a superb header onto the post. It rebounds into the goal off Rashford, but the Mancunian is offside
...
87' OH! Pogba loses out to Chambers at the edge of the box; young Willock runs at United and tries to play in Welbeck... who is then beaten to it by Smalling. They soon win a freekick in a dangerous areaa too. Arsenal are finishing this with a flourish
...
86' Martial looks to take Bellerin on a joyride, but Hector's already seen the sights - and he's having none of the Frenchman's trickery
...
85' Chambers plays a gorgeous long ball out to Iwobi; who can't really get it under his control. Uncle Jay-Jay probably would have, Alex!
...
84' OH! A sustained bit of pressure from United dies down as Pogba backheels a ball into his standing leg (by the looks at it) - Arsenal fans are in full volume "Jose Mourinho, we waaaant you to stay"
...
83' Martial touches a glorious backheel to Young; who pumps it deep to Valencia - and he smashes a ball into row Z. Chris Gayle would have been proud of the height that ball gained. Six. 
...
82' Young curls a superb ball into the box which Fellaini shoulders away from an onrushing Alexis Sanchez! OH FELLAINI! Missed his chance, and caused Sanchez to miss his too!
...
80' Matic - who has been immense today - intercepts a Xhaka ball that looked destined to put Aubameyang through, and on his scooter. 
...
79' And another... Sanchez will take it. He plays it out to Martial on the edge of the box; but the Frenchman curls a tame effort well wide
...
78' Matic, Sanchez, Pogba - rat-a-tat go the passes as United steam forward, and Rashford can only win a corner. From which onother is one.. 
...
77' OH MY! Finally some excitement! Chris Smalling slips over a routine clearance... and Lindelof does superbly to slide in just ahead of Aubameyang
...
76' It's not Cech; Henrikh Mkhitaryan departs to an ovation (not standing, but still...) as Joe Willock comes on in his stead
...
75' Or maybe not. Cech is warming up. 
...
74' Valencia measures a delightful cross into the Arsenal box; where Ospina comes, misses, and sees Chambers head it just in front of Fellaini. The Colombian is down after bundling into the Belgian; he should be fine. 
...
73' Martial and Rashford look to combine down the left; but a hard touch from Rashford sees the ball bounce off to touch
...
72' Nothing comes from the corner, but Martial are at it again. He zips down the left and squares the ball to Smalling - who kicks nothing but air. The ball comes back and Fellaini half-volleys one into orbit
...
71' Martial lifts out a superb ball deep to Fellaini - but Mavoropanos does superbly to head it out for a corner ahead of the onrushing Belgian. 
...
70' Maitland-Niles, who has been magnifique all evening, plays it out to Monreal; but the Spaniard's caught offside by United's discipline
...
69' Mavoropanos does superbly to bully Pogba off; and he plays the ball out to the United third; where Welbeck steals the ball off Fellaini and absolutely leathers one straight at De Gea
...
68' Welbeck kills a difficult ball dead with a lovely touch of his bosom; then half falls, half runs into space - till Matic says 'enough is enough baba'and walks away with the ball
...
67' OH! Mkhitaryan looks to slip in Aubameyang, but the ball goes one way and the player the other - and that's easy for De Gea
...
66' Welbeck muscles Matic off the ball. I'll just leave that here
...
65' Martial, out on his favoured left, cuts in and leaves Bellerin in his wake. He then looks up and plays the most atrocious ball you'd see into Opsina's hands. The Frenchman's United career in a nutshell, that
...
64' Martial and Young look to play their way down the left but Bellerin and Chambers do superbly to marshall them out
...
63' Double, double, subs: Welbeck and Monreal on for Nelson and an injured Kolasinac. For United, Martial and Fellaini on for Herrera and Lingard
...
62' United squeeze Arsenal into their own box, playing it with calm confidence around and between a mass of blue; but the visitors are holding firm
...
61' United try to work their way into the box with some intricate passing, but Kolasinac intervenes once again and sends Aubameyang on his way - but his ball out to Young is wayward
...
60' OH! Arsenal are alive and well - Kolasinac contemptously shrugs off Lingard by the right touchline, but overplays his boost of adrenaline by playing it crossfield straight to Young. 
...
59' Matic tries to play in Valencia down the right, but it's a touch too ambitous and Nelson can clear it. It comes straight back, though, through Valencia again- but his ball into the box is easily cleared by Chambers ahead of Sanchez
...
56' Maitland-Niles so composed, so lovely on the ball looks to play in Aubameyang but Smalling cuts it out. Young then gores heavy on Mkhitaryan and that's a foul for Arsenal down by the corner flag
...
55' OH! Mkhitaryan intercepts deep in his own half, Riess Nelson swerves past two challenges gets stopped by Matic, wins it back and plays it out to the Armenian on the Arsenal left. He runs at Valencia and leathers a curling shot well over. Game. ON. 
...
54' OH! Young's corner is flicked on by Rashford, but no one in red can touch it. Arsenal mop it all up and force United all the way back. The game's sparked to life, alright
...
53' Sanchez tries again- this time to his right - playing a lovely ball out to Valencia, his cross is headed out; but only to Young; who's shot is deflected out for a corner
...
52' Sanchez looks to return the favour immediately - barrelling into the third and playing it wide to Young; who's cross is nonsense. 
...
OH! He doesn't celebrate, either! Xhaka starts it off with a superb interception and a pass forward. Mkhitaryan dribbles at Lindelof, and shoots early between the Swede's legs and into the far corner. 
...
51' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! MKHITARYAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!
...
49' Rashford is on, Lukaku doesn't pleased to come off; and that's good to see - who wants to see a footballer relieved to take an early bath? Safety first, though, from Mourinho and his staff
...
48' Lukaku looks  to be out of it after that sturdy Greek challenge - looks like some trouble on the ankle - and United are not ready to take any chances; Marcus Rashford is going to come on in his stead
...
47' Mavoropanos and Lukaku clash - and the big Greek comes off the winner - with the Belgian down, Arsenal motor forward; Ainsley Maintland-Niles looks to swerve into the United box, but he's closed down rapidly by Smalling and Lindelof; and that's that as the ball dribbles its way to De Gea
...
46' Lindelof gives the ball away, Herrera trips up Maitland-Niles the guy's who robbed the Sweded and freekick Arsenal on the half-line
...
PEEP! WE ARE OFF AGAIN!
...
HALF-TIME! MANCHESTER UNITED 1 - 0 ARSENAL

God, that's been dull
...
46' One minute added time. Nothing happens.
