Peter Schmeichel has taken a swipe at Manchester United summer signing Andre Onana after Arsenal produced a stunning 3-1 comeback win at the Emirates on Sunday.

Marcus Rashford’s first-half opener for United was immediately cancelled out by Martin Odegaard during a thrilling contest between the two Premier League rivals.

However, it was Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal side who walked away with the ultimate bragging rights on the day after a sensational comeback deep into injury time.

Declan Rice broke the deadlock after being picked out by a Bukayo Saka cross, as Arsenal’s summer signing chested down the ball before he unleashed a powerful strike.

Onana was beaten at his near post by Rice’s volley, which benefited from a slight deflection from United defender Jonny Evans.

Schmeichel on Onana and United defeat

Gabriel Jesus ensured all three points for Arsenal after a fast break allowed the Gunners striker to make light work of Diogo Dalot before coolly slotting past Onana.

According to The Daily Mirror, Schmeichel was “shocked” by what he had seen and the United legend believes that Onana should have prevented Rice from scoring.

“I’ve got no words… I’m shocked,” he said.

“It’s a terrible way to lose a game. United defended so badly for the corner at the end, Declan Rice had so much time and the goalkeeper should save it.”

Ten Hag’s United frustrations continue

United have only secured six points from their opening four Premier League matches, with the Red Devils suffering defeats to Tottenham and Arsenal.

Erik ten Hag’s men are 11th in the Premier League table going into the international break, with United coming under fierce criticism over their performances this season.

Speaking after the Arsenal defeat, United manager Ten Hag insisted that his side “needed a little bit more luck” to pick up a winning result against the Gunners.

“The performance was alright from us. I thought we played a very good game but everything went against us — then you don’t win the game,” he told Sky Sports.

“We needed a little bit more luck to win the game. It was not offside [for Alejandro Garnacho’s goal]. It was the wrong angle.

“It was then a penalty on [Rasmus] Hojlund and then we concede a goal that’s a foul on Jonny Evans. It’s so clear and obvious.

“You can say you need to finish your chances and that you shouldn’t concede a goal after going 1-0 up. This is all true, but I was happy with the performance.”
