ARSENAL got off to a winning start away at Crystal Palace as they won 2-0 at Selhurst Park in the opening match of the new Premier League season.

The Gunners looked to be a different team from the side that were humiliated 3-0 by Patrick Vieira's men in April.

After spurning an early chance, Martinelli broke the deadlock in South London in the 20th minute.

The Brazilian forward headed home from close range after getting on the end of Oleksandr Zinchenko's header across goal.

Aaron Ramsdale denied Odsonne Edoaurd and Eberechi Eze either side of the half to keep the game level.

And after intense pressure, Arsenal sealed the victory in the 85th minute after Marc Guehi bundled in Bukayo Saka's cross to turn into his own net.

Man Utd squad cost compared to Brentford revealed… with Erik ten Hag’s flops worth EIGHT time more despite loss

Their first-half collapse included two horrendous blunders from David de Gea, a moaning Cristiano Ronaldo and resulted in a triple substitution at half-time.

But the alarming stat posted by Sky Sports during the second half showed just how impressive Brentford and their recruitment has been compared to the shambles at Old Trafford.

United's starting XI cost approximately £424million.

That included the world-record £85m for Harry Maguire and £73m on the anonymous Jadon Sancho.

And struggling duo Lisandro Martinez and Fred - who were both hooked at the break - cost £56m and £52m respectively.

By comparison, Thomas Frank's 11 brilliant Bees stars arrived in West London for a grand total of £55m.

And the four goalscorers - Josh Dasilva, Mathias Jensen, Ben Mee and Bryan Mbeumo - all came in for just £10m.

Gary Neville blasted the club once again on commentary.

He said: "It's a real achievement to spend a billion pounds and be this bad. 

"It doesn't take much to dismantle this United team. You just need organization and fight and they will crumble. Flaky like you wouldn't believe. They're like jelly.

"I've watched Manchester United for 42 years and I can't think of a moment where it has been as bad as the first half. 

"Erik ten Hag has picked the smallest team he could hoping they would outplay Brentford.

"You have to deal with the physical side of the Premier League. It's like a men's team against Under-9s.

"They have been mauled. Bullied. Messed around with like you wouldn’t believe in this first half hour.

"What a first half we are seeing. The demolition of Manchester United."
