Watch: Neville And Carragher Argue Over Whether It Really Was A De Gea Error

Watch: Neville And Carragher Argue Over Whether It Really Was A De Gea Error

Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher had their weekly lovers tiff as they argued over David de Gea's blunder.

While Arsenal certainly rode their luck at times, they secured a vital victory in the race for the top four, with a big win over Manchester United at the Emirates on Sunday evening.

Romelu Lukaku should have given Man United the lead, but instead, the Belgian striker rifled his shot against the bar from six yards out.

Unai Emery's side punished that miss three minutes later, with a heavy wind blustering around the Emirates, Granit Xhaxa's swerving strike befuddled David de Gea and nestled inside the left-hand corner of the net.

Neville: I don't know why he's not so sure about it, it's gone in the centre of the goal from 30 yards. It's not even a debate.

Carragher: Why's everyone got to have the same opinion as you?

Possibly the best part of all of this is the rare Graeme Souness smile, as he witnesses Neville becoming more and more irritated by Carragher's line of questioning.

It might be clutching at straws with that one, we'll settle with a wry smile.

United responded well from going behind and Fred should have brought them level if it was not for the base of the post and a good Bernd Leno save from Lukaku.

Arsenal made the most out of United's lack of a clinical edge when Alexandre Lacazette were awarded a questionable penalty 21 minutes from time, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sent De Gea the wrong way from the spot, making up for his last-minute penalty miss in the North London Derby last weekend.

The was potentially a massive result for Arsenal in the race for top four, with the Gunners now only one point behind third-placed Tottenham Hotspurs, having been ten points behind their fierce rivals only three weeks ago.

For Ole Gunner Solskjaer's United side they will be looking to bounce back in the FA Cup next weekend against Wolves.
