Maguire and Onana inspire Man Utd to victory, Arsenal beat Sevilla

Maguire's Header and Onana's Heroics Secure Victory for Manchester United

Manchester United claimed a hard-fought 1-0 win against Copenhagen in the UEFA Champions League. The game was emotionally charged at Old Trafford due to the passing of Sir Bobby Charlton, with touching tributes before the match.

United struggled to make an impact early on, and the first half saw Copenhagen coming dangerously close to scoring, hitting the post with a Diogo Goncalves volley.

The second half ignited with a brilliant save by Andre Onana to keep the scores level. The contest intensified, with Christian Eriksen being denied at the other end.

In the 72nd minute, United finally broke the deadlock. Harry Maguire headed in a cross from Eriksen after a corner had initially been cleared.

Deep into stoppage time, Copenhagen was awarded a penalty after a high boot from Scott McTominay on Mohamed Elyounoussi. However, Onana became the hero, making a crucial save on Jordan Larsson's spot-kick.

United now aims to continue their winning streak when they face Manchester City on Sunday.

Arsenal Tops Group B with a 2-1 Victory Over Sevilla

In a thrilling match, Arsenal went top of Group B in the UEFA Champions League after defeating Sevilla 2-1 in Spain. Gabriel Martinelli and Gabriel Jesus were the stars for the Gunners, who now hold a one-point lead over Lens in second place.

Arsenal started strong, and Martinelli forced an early save from Orjan Nyland. Their first goal came in stoppage time in the first half from a sweeping counter-attack. Gabriel Jesus skillfully set up Martinelli, who raced through to round Nyland and tap the ball into an empty net.

Early in the second half, Captain Martin Odegaard missed a golden opportunity to double Arsenal's lead. However, Gabriel Jesus struck on 53 minutes, curling a remarkable shot into the top-right corner to make it 2-0.

Sevilla managed to pull one goal back through Nemanja Gudelj, but Arsenal held firm to secure the victory. The only concern for the Gunners was Gabriel Jesus picking up a hamstring injury during the later stages of the game.

Arsenal will be eager to maintain their unbeaten start in the Premier League when they face Sheffield United at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
