  1. That's all folks

    FT: Man Utd 0-1 Arsenal

    Wow, what a finish that was then.

    It was attack v defence for the final 10 minutes and Man Utd were moments away from their first WSL points.

    That's football though and Arsenal head back to north London with three well-earned points.

    We'll see you a week on Saturday as Manchester United host Liverpool.

    Have a great night!

    Arsenal celebrate victory
  2. 'Man Utd need a goalscorer'

    FT: Man Utd 0-1 Arsenal

    Lindsay Johnson

    Ex-England defender on BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra

    Mary Earps made some fantastic saves and Manchester United will need that experience throughout the season.

    What they really need is a goalscorer. They scored so many goals last season but now it's about converting their chances in this league.

    But they have got two really difficult games out of the way in Manchester City and Arsenal, and Casey Stoney will now be looking at how United can get three points from their next game.

  3. 'It was always going to tough'

    FT: Man Utd 0-1 Arsenal

    Quote Message: A lot of teams are going to come here and it's going to be tough. In the second half we opened them up and had a couple of opportunities. Part of the game is putting the ball in the back of the net, it just took us until the 89th minute. from Arsenal manager Joe Montemurro told BT Sport

  4. 'Relentlessness' key for Arsenal

    FT: Man Utd 0-1 Arsenal

    Lindsay Johnson

    Ex-England defender on BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra

    The Arsenal bench went mental when the goal went in because they know that every point is important when they're going for the Championship.

    They had a tough game tonight.

    On chances created they were by far the better team and they deserved the three points. However, Manchester United gave them a tough game tonight but the relentlessness from Arsenal ground eventually ground them down.

  5. 'We're on the right track'

    FT: Man Utd 0-1 Arsenal

    Quote Message: I'm happy I could score today. It doesn't matter who scores it, as long as we win. I think it's important to win games at the beginning of the season, it puts you ahead of everyone else. We're on the right track. from Goalscorer Danielle Van de Donk told BT Sport

    Quote Message: It was a tough match. Man Utd set up very well. We were persistent, we were patient and we got the three points in the end. We believe in our ability and how we play. With the players we have, we know they'll turn up when needed. from Arsenal's Kim Little told BT Sport

    That's it.

    A late goal is the difference. Arsenal were the better of the two sides, and deserve this win. It's harsh on Man Utd, they defended so well.

    You can tell by the jubilant celebrations from the Arsenal bench just how tough this game has been for the defending champions. Joe Montemurro's face tells the story. Relief and passion.

    It was relentless and that goal was definitely coming. It was shot after shot, deflection after deflection.

    Eventually it went in and you can't say that Arsenal didn't deserve that goal. The Manchester United defenders are on their knees.
