Atleti 1:0 Arsenal—Vote for Player/Ratings & MOTM!

So, this is how it all ends, eh? Diego Costa bullying his way around the pitch and going down under the lightest of touches, menacing any and all around him and crumpling at every opportune moment.

It was bound to be an odd occasion. On one hand, it's  Arsène's last trip to Old Trafford, led by José Mourinho, with Alexis Sánchez to face—all the ingredients for a fierce clash. On the other hand, the outcome means almost nothing for our season. Our Prem position is all but set at sixth, and we have far-bigger fish to fry with a Europa League final hanging just barely within reach. Arsène showed where his priorities lie with an XI full of youth, including a debut for Konstantinos Mavropanos. In the early going, it looked like it would be Man U's day as Pogba scored in the 16th minute after Bellerín deflected Alexis's header off the post. However, Mkhitaryan found an equaliser just after halftime, and there it stood until the 88th minute when Fellaini headed off the post off of Rashford and in. A winner? No, Rashford was clearly offside. Minutes later, Fellaini did score the winner. Feh. Let's rate the lads...
