Arsenal fans spotted leaving Emirates before late match-winning goals by Declan Rice and Gabriel Jesus against Man United

A group of Arsenal fans were captured having already left the Emirates before two dramatic late goals saw them beat Manchester United.

The Gunners were level at 1-1 heading into stoppage time, but in the sixth minute of added time, Declan Rice scored his first goal for the club in the most dramatic of circumstances.

Then, with ten minutes extra on the clock, Gabriel Jesus made north London erupt with a breakaway goal securing a stunning 3-1 win.

After Rice’s winner, though, cameras pictured a number of fans in Arsenal shirts already outside of the stadium and heading home.

There was a small window where leaving early might have been justifiable for Arsenal fans, with Alejandro Garnacho scoring four minutes after coming on in the 88th minute.

The United academy graduate provoked wild scenes of celebration, and may have been the cause of some Gunners to depart, however, had they stayed they would have quickly learned there was a video review taking place.

Garnacho was then called offside, and the score reset to 1-1 for stoppage time, and Arsenal fully capitalised on the momentum.

Rice, the club’s £105million record signing from West Ham, saw the ball fall to him from a corner, and certainly made his own luck.

Shaping to put the ball back towards the six yard area, he instead shot towards the near post, and with Jonny Evans heading the wrong way, the ball deflected off his shin, deceiving Andre Onana and finding the back of the net.

Then, with United desperately trying to equalise, Arsenal instead broke, and saw Fabio Vieira pick out Gabriel Jesus, who ran through one-on-one, sat down Onana, and slotted home his first goal of the season.

It was a remarkable end to a game that rarely threatened to break into life in the second half.

The first 45 minutes saw one minute of sheer chaos when Marcus Rashford opened the scoring, only Martin Odegaard to hit straight back from the kick-off.
