However, Marcus Rashford’s brace settled the game, ending the Gunners’ perfect start to the season.

Ten Hag, speaking to Match of the Day, said: “We are happy and satisfied with the win, also the performance against a really good team – they played really well.

“The spirit from this team, they can deal with setbacks so we did, it is really great and shows your mentality – we have really improved on that.

“We have the right characters and now it is about cooperation, deal with set backs but also improve – we have to stay calm, stay composed and play our game.

“You can see that Arsenal are more together, more routines – but our team spirit brings us the win.

“We can still do things better, with pressing, we had a good plan but the incoming from Zinchenko for instance, that gives them overnumbering in midfeld. We can be more composed on the ball, don’t give it away away

“When we got beat in the press we fought back and recovered, especially in transitions we were good.”
