Match Commentary

95' null
95' FULL-TIME: You have to wonder how damaging that result will be to Arsenal's psyche. A game their team were seemingly in charge of was wrestled from their grip via a controversial penalty and an hugely unfortunate own goal. How will they react to this setback? Not vintage from United but Sir Alex son't care about that. United have passed their first big test of the season.
95' Arsene Wenger was celebrating what looked to be an equaliser from Van Persie but unbeknownst to the Arsenal manager Gallas had just strayed offside so the goal does not stand. And Mr Wenger has been sent to the naughty boys's step for his protests to the delight of the United fans who merrily serenade his long lonely walk to the stands.
