Mikel Arleta won his first match as Arsenal head coach in 2-0 premier league match against Manchester United on New Year’s Day.

Nicolas Pepe scored the first goal in the 8th minute while Sokratis Papastathopoulos scored in the 42nd minute after De Gea parried Lacazzette’s header.

This is Arteta’s first win since he replaced Unai Emery as Arsenal coach.
