A group of Arsenal fans left the Emirates Stadium before witnessing two incredible late goals that secured a victory against Manchester United. The match was tied at 1-1 heading into stoppage time, but in the sixth minute of added time, Declan Rice scored his first goal for Arsenal in a truly dramatic fashion. Shortly after, Gabriel Jesus sealed the victory with a breakaway goal, causing a wave of celebration in north London.
Unfortunately, some Arsenal fans had already left the stadium after Rice’s winning goal. It was a shame for them to miss such an incredible moment.
The game started with Marcus Rashford putting Manchester United ahead with a fantastic curling effort in the first half. However, Arsenal quickly responded with a goal from Martin Odegaard. As the match approached its conclusion, Alejandro Garnacho appeared to have scored a winning goal for Manchester United, but it was disallowed by VAR due to offside. Ultimately, Rice and Jesus secured the three points for Mikel Arteta’s team.

The long awaited Carabao Cup Semi-Final between Arsenal and Manchester United has finally come to an end – but not as many Arsenal fans had expected. In the 92nd minute, a dramatic turn of events saw West Ham United’s Declan Rice score the first goal of the game for Man United, and shortly after, Gabriel Jesus piled on the misery for Arsenal as he added a second.
The Emirates Stadium was stunned into silence as the players celebrated their late goals, although it was a shock to some that there were several Arsenal supporters who had made the decision to leave the stadium before the late drama unfolded. Supporters of the Gunners have been left dismayed by their team’s poor display against Man United and some had decided to show their disapproval by heading for the exits after the second half had looked to have ended in a stalemate.
However, the decision not to remain in the stands cost some Arsenal fans the chance to celebrate a memorable late victory that could have seen the team progress to the Carabao Cup Final. Although the majority of supporters stayed until the end, some of the Arsenal faithful were spotted making their way out of the stadium – before Rice and Jesus’ decisive interventions in the clash.
Arsenal supporters have harangued their team for the past few weeks after a series of disappointing performances, but the sight of some leaving the stadium before the final whistle may have come as a surprise to the coaches, players and their faithfuls alike. Whilst the victory has been a sore blow to many Gooners, the individuals who decided to leave before the late drama may want to reconsider potentially doing it again in the future.
