Arsenal were punished for two sloppy errors as they were beaten 2-0 by Manchester United in New Jersey on Saturday.
Mikel Arteta’s side, who beat the MLS All-Stars 5-0 earlier in the week, started brightly and should have gone in front when Gabriel Martinelli was denied twice by Tom Heaton.
But a poor mistake by Aaron Ramsdale allowed Bruno Fernandes to open the scoring soon after and then a poor piece of play by Gabriel Magalhaes saw Jason Sancho race away to double the scoring for United before half-time.
There were no further goals in the second half, but a penalty shootout took place at the end of the game, with United winning 5-3 after Fabio Vieira missed for the Gunners.
Below are the Arsenal player ratings for the pre-season clash.
Poor mistake for the first goal. Should have done better to keep out Fernandes’ shot. Didn’t get close to a single penalty in the shootout. 4
Started well, but was left a bit isolated at times when United broke quickly down Arsenal’s right. One of Arsenal’s better players on the night. 7
Wasn’t really troubled. Looked comfortable when he was on the ball. 7
Dreadful error which was seized upon by Sancho in the build up to the second goal. 6
Couldn’t really get into the game as an attacking force down the right hand side. Replaced at half-time. 6
Another player who started brightly before struggling a bit as the game wore on. 6
Never really got into the game. Was always on the fringes of things. 5
Like Odegaard, he was always on the fringes of the game in the first half. Didn’t cause United any problems in the first half. Could have done better with a header after the interval. 5
On the receiving end of some physical challenges once again. Never really threatened. 6
Martinez kept him quiet. Struggled a bit whenever the ball was played into his feet. Missed a chance in the second half. 4
Missed a golden opportunity to open the scoring early on. Should have done better after being picked out unmarked. 5
Injected a bit of energy into the second half. 6
Never really troubled after coming on at centre-back. 5
Looked composed when he was on the ball at right-back. 5
Booked after a poor challenge. Looked frustrated at times. 5
Couldn’t make a difference after being introduced. 5
Emile Smith Rowe
No real impact, but looked tidy in possession. Saw a later header deflected wide. 5
Never really in the game. Only player to miss a penalty in the shootout. 4
