Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could be heard shouting ‘Marcus, he cannot defend!’ as he encouraged his forward to attack Arsenal full back Cedric Soares.

Arsenal have conceded two goals in the three Premier League games Cedric has played this season. 

The 29-year-old usually operates as a right back but Tierney’s injury has seen Mikel Arteta play the Portugal international on the opposite side.

Cedric did not react to Solskjaer’s comments on the touchline.

Cedric had a busy first half as he clashed with Bruno Fernandes following a coming together

The defender had a busy half after being involved in a exchange of words with Bruno Fernandes following a coming together. 

The defender was booked for leaving an arm on the United midfielder’s face. 

Arsenal have only lost twice when the defender has started this season. 

Cedric joined Arteta’s side permanently in the summer after initially joining on loan last January.

The full back has played six games in the Europa League with the Gunners conceding five goals.

He also featured in Arsenal’s 4-1 Carabao Cup defeat by Manchester City and the 1-0 FA Cup defeat by Southampton.  

Rashford is yet to score from the right wing in the Premier League this season but did manage two goals from that side in the Champions League. 

The forward had a good opportunity in the first half as the ball fell to him in the penalty area but Arsenal’s defenders got back to crowd him out as his shot was blocked. 

The England international was unable to get on the scoresheet before being substituted for Mason Greenwood in the 80th minute.  

Neither side were able to find the back of the net with the game ending 0-0.
