Manchester United’s 25-match unbeaten run in the Premier League came to an end as they were beaten 2-0 by Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday.
Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho had previously suggested that the Europa League was his priority with the club suffering from a number of injury problems, and it proved to be the case as he made eight changes from the team that beat Celta Vigo 1-0 in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final tie on Thursday.
Quick-fire second half goals from Granit Xhaka and former United striker Danny Welbeck wrapped up the three points for the hosts, with Arsene Wenger recording his first ever Premier League victory against the Portuguese boss.
Red Devils supporters were quick to give their reaction to the defeat via social media, and they weren’t impressed with the performance and some of the players involved.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
@ManUtd Mourinho is a genius, let Arsenal win, please Arsenal fans and extent that Wenger contract. Tactical genius in the most indirect ways.

@ManUtd We didn't try to win and never looked like getting anything from the game (and Arsenal are poor this season…)

@ManUtd some of these players need to pull their fingers out their arse and play for the badge. Disappointed.
