Declan Rice sent the Emirates Stadium into a state of jubilation when he scored the crucial goal that put Arsenal ahead against Manchester United in the closing moments of the match. However, it was Jorginho’s actions shortly thereafter that captured the attention of fans on social media.

With only minutes left to play, Rice, the former West Ham midfielder, beat Andre Onana at his near post, providing a dramatic lead for Mikel Arteta’s team. Before Rice celebrated, Jorginho, who was on the bench and still wearing an orange training bib, embraced the 23-year-old in excitement.

Jorginho sprinted toward the home supporters, leading the celebrations in the corner flag, where he was mobbed by both players and fans. Just moments later, Gabriel Jesus extended Arsenal’s lead with a composed finish, causing the Emirates Stadium to erupt in joy, leaving Erik ten Hag and the Manchester United players devastated.

Prior to Arsenal’s match against Manchester United, Arteta emphasized the significance of obtaining a positive result in this historic fixture. He stated, “We are aware of the history between the two clubs and the matches we’ve had in the past. They serve as a great example, so Sunday will be a highly competitive match and a significant battle. Naturally, we want to leave with three points.”

When asked if the match would be an early indication of their Premier League title aspirations, Arteta responded, “I don’t know. I think it’s too early in the season. We all want to win matches, we all want to play our best football. It won’t determine our destiny, but it can provide momentum and confidence. It’s crucial to end before the international break with a win and go into September with a positive run of games.”

In another high-scoring encounter, Arteta explained why goals tend to flow when Arsenal and Manchester United face off. He added, “Firstly, it’s due to the quality of the players. Both teams have numerous top offensive players. It may also be attributed to the approach of both teams, how we want to play. There were some mistakes involved that we hope to eliminate. Typically, it’s a very entertaining fixture.”
