It’s eight wins out of eight for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Manchester United.

Not only have the Red Devils now caught up with Arsenal in the Premier League, but they’ve also knocked them out of the FA Cup.

United travelled to the Emirates and came away with a 3-1 win to progress into the fifth round.

Alexis Sanchez returned to his former club to haunt them by scoring the opener after fine work from Romelu Lukaku.

Lukaku was the provider once again two minutes later as Jesse Lingard put United 2-0 up.

Just before half-time, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang gave the home side a glimmer of hope when he poked home after good work from Aaron Ramsey.

But it wasn’t to be for the Gunners and the match was sealed in the 82nd-minute.

Arsenal were caught by a swift counter-attack that was led by Paul Pogba. Pogba saw his shot parried by Petr Cech but he could only push the ball into the path of the onrushing Anthony Martial, who sealed the tie.


Arsenal were out, United were through.

In the BBC Match of the Day studio after the game, Arsenal legend Ian Wright looked rather deflated.

However, that soon changed when he saw Pogba in the mixed soon.

According to Manchester Evening News, Wright completely lost his mind when he spotted the World Cup winner giving interviews after the match.

Wright was with David Seaman and a handful of Arsenal fans when he saw Pogba.

"Is that Paul Pogba?" he reportedly shouted.  "Oh my God! I love you man! Paul Pogba! Paul, I love you Paul! I love you! Paul I love you Paul Pogba! Paul I love you man! You're the best man."

And how did Pogba react?

M.E.N write: “Pogba, with his back to the lift, initially ignored the group but after turning around, he realised it was Wright calling his name and went over to give the Arsenal hero a big hug.”


What beautiful moment.

Apparently, Pogba continued to give his interview and went on to say that United aren’t getting carried away despite having won eight in a row.

"We just have to carry on doing this," he said. "After we will see the result. We're doing great, we're doing great. It's always beautiful to win. That's why you play. Always the next game is going to be harder and harder so we have to keep focused and hopefully we will win."
