Declan Rice bagged his first Arsenal goal to help the Gunners to a 3-1 win over Man Utd at the Emirates this afternoon.
The club’s record signing drilled in a low shot, via a deflection, to put us ahead in the 4th minute of 8 minutes of injury time, before Gabriel Jesus sealed the win with an even later strike to make it 3-1.
Reflecting on the moment with Sky Sports afterwards, the midfielder said, “We were knocking at the door with the corners.
“I had a chance in the first half, but we was a constant threat. And then the one at the end, obviously I scored, I stayed back and I think first time controlled it with my chin and then scored.
“But if you don’t shoot, you don’t score. Yeah, it was just a such a special moment!”
And on the importance of the win, he continued, “Look I think if we’re speaking honestly, Man City have won 4 out of 4. If we didn’t win today, we would already be five points behind them, and to catch up points on them is a massive margin to make.
“We couldn’t afford to have that distance after 4 games, so to win that today was a must win, we said that before the game, and to now go into the international break with a couple of wins and a draw it’s really good.”
