Ironic Win for Manchester United Against Arsenal
It was almost an undoubted win for Arsenal, as the Gunners took control of the game during the first half, with a stunning strike from Andriy Arshavin. Manchester United looks extremely messy in the midfield engine room, often giving away ball possession.
As the second half started, the table started to turn towards the favour of the Red Devils – Wayne Rooney scored the penalty after he was brought down by the goalkeeper. What made matter worse was an own goal by Arsenal’s Abou Diaby. From a free kick position, Ryan Giggs curled into the penalty area, to find no red shirt, only the Gunners, yet Diaby headed into his own net.
The game concluded with Arsene Wenger sent off by the referee because of kicking a water bottle.
