Arsenal moved back to the top of the Premier League with a 1-0 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford, taking the title race to the final day.

Leandro Trossard's early goal from Kai Havertz's right-wing cross put the Gunners ahead and though Erik ten Hag's injury-hit United pushed hard for the equaliser, it would not come as Mikel Arteta's team claimed their 18th clean sheet of this league season.

The three points move them back one point ahead of reigning champions Manchester City who have a game in hand - to be played at Tottenham on Tuesday. Whatever happens in midweek, the Premier League title race will now go to the last day of the season.

On the day that Manchester United's women's team won the FA Cup at Wembley, the struggles of the men's team continued. This defeat means that they remain three points behind Chelsea and West Ham in eighth, their hopes of Europe now slim.
