Footage Of Jadon Sancho And Alex Telles Trying To Mark Eddie Nketiah Is Hilariously Bad

Footage has gone viral of Jadon Sancho and Alex Telles' attempts to mark Eddie Nketiah during Arsenal's win over Manchester United, and it's for all the wrong reasons.


It wasn't exactly surprising to see United defend badly at the beginning of Saturday's loss, anyone who's watched them this season knows it's hardly a strong point.

Ralf Rangnick's side found themselves 1-0 down after just three minutes from Nuno Tavares' goal, after some really shocking defending.


United then thought they were 2-0 down when Nketiah scored, only for VAR to rule it out and then subsequently give Mikel Arteta's side a penalty, because Telles fouled Bukayo Saka.

Whilst Scott McTominay tried to put Saka off, by knocking the ball out of his hands, Sancho and Telles tried to mark Nketiah on the edge of the box, incase there was a rebound.

The striker was not exactly intimidated by being sandwiched in and just moved to Sancho's right, leaving the two United players essentially marking each other.


Of course it didn't matter in the end as Saka buried his second penalty in a matter of days, having also scored against Chelsea, but it's just another moment from United that provides some laughs.

United did get back in the game when Cristiano Ronaldo scored just a couple of minutes later, and may have even drawn level in the second half.

Bruno Fernandes had the chance to score an equaliser from the visitors own penalty, after Tavares fouled Nemanja Matic, but the midfielder hit the post, leading to questions of why Ronaldo didn't take it.


Granit Xhaka then finished the game off by scoring Arsenal's third, with 20 minutes to go, with a great strike from outside the box.

The result all but ended United's chances of finishing in the fourth Champions League spot this season and gave Arsenal a huge boost to do just that.
