But Bruno Fernandes ensured the scores are level at half time with his strike.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 800th career goal with the simplest finish to put Manchester United up in the 56th minute but Martin Oedegaard equalised for Arsenal two minutes later.

Ronaldo completed his brace in the 70th minute when scored from the spot kick for Manchester United’s third on the day and his career’s 801st.
