Devil Gunned Down Gunners
Hot and sizzling...that sums up the match between United and Arsenal on Saturday Barclay EPL match.
Arsenal were first to broke the deadlock through stunning goal by Andrei Arshavin that silences the Old Trafford in the 40th minutes.
In the sceond half, Almunia tripped Rooney in the box and Rooney converted the penalty to level the match.
Five minutes later, the phoenix rises from ashes as United were upfront through Abou Diaby woeful own goal. Diaby headed to his own net through freekicks from Ryan Giggs.
Deep into the injury time, Arsenal's were in euphoria when Van Persie scored, but was canceled due to offside.
Wenger was furios and to complete the misery, he was sent off from the bench in dying minutes apparently for kicking bottles.
Though it was a good 3 point for United, but it seems their performance a little bit shaky. Their midfields were fragiles by allowing Arsenal spaces to move around.
Carrick was terrible with passing, easily lose possesion and Valencia wasn't live up to the expectation. That leaves Rooney lack of support in the upfront.
Only Fletcher was outstanding as he working tirelessly in the midfield.
United should have secured their win when embarassingly, Berbatov balooning his shot to the stand, even though it was only Almunia to beat. And that dosen't look like a 30 million pound worth of strikers.
So win were United, but they should gear up for next coming fixtures. As the transfer deadline is looming, Fergie once again stressed out there no more major signings. But expect the unexpected because United's performance signal out that they are need one...URGENT.
