LONDON (AP) Manchester United inflicted Arsenal's first Premier League home loss in 15 months on Saturday in a 2-1 victory that propelled the fallen power into the top four for the first time under Louis van Gaal after a faltering start.

After failing to score during its first-half supremacy, Arsenal capitulated with defender Kieran Gibbs scoring an own goal and Wayne Rooney netting for United. Olivier Giroud's goal was too late to prevent United winning away in the league for the first time this season, sending Arsenal tumbling to eighth in its worst start for 32 years.

"Defensively, we were a bit naive," Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said.
