Manchester United Message Board
Surprised there's no mention of the match here. Arsenal started really well, and dominantly, but when you look back on the first half, you see that they had less actual chances than us. That's good, but also means that we let too many chances go begging.
Nani ad Valencia both looked out of sorts, although Valencia improved a bit as it went on. I think we should give him at least another season, but Nani's had too many chances without making an impression.
Rooney out in a couple of truly impressive passes again, and Jones continues to look excellent. Ferdinand almost looked like he was showing off at times, but he pulled it off, and looks back to somewhere near his peak.
"After the game, Wenger was asked about Van Persie’s goal, to which he responded by claiming he hadn’t scored.
“I don’t think he scored,” he said. “He scored a penalty.” Wenger was reminded that they all count, to which he replied: “It counts but it’s not completely the same.”
For the most part United's chances were on the break and the only goal scored was from a penalty that should not have been.
Arsenal were the team with most to lose and under most pressure because of that. The more relaxed and confident United could not manage to gain the win,therefore losing all chance of the Chelsea record.
Mourinhos Chelsea, the last truly great team since the 'invincibles'.

...And? Arsenal certainly dominated possession, if that's what you're getting at, but did less with it.
"and the only goal scored was from a penalty that should not have been."
You're trying to argue that penalty was unfair? Sagna missed the ball, took out RVP's feet. Looked quite clear to me, certainly on the replays.
Oh, wait, silly me. It was a United penalty. Of course it shouldn't have been. Sorry, I forgot.

Ladies and gentlemen, the perfect example of ABU.
