United showed an evidence that inexperience legs with old heads can win match. The 90 minutes match was dominated completely by United's young lads whereas the Gunners were all over the grass but not in the goal tally in comparison to United.
Welbeck, the goal scorer from the last game against Spurs opened the account for The Red Devils with a superb goal at 22 minutes from Anderson's pass. But after 5 minutes the match referee, Howard Webb awarded a penalty to the visitors when Jonny Evans’s tug on Theo Walcott sent the winger tumbling to the ground. But the Spanish goalkeeper, De Gea diving low to his right, keep out the Arsenal captain’s spot-kick. It was an good penalty save from De Gea to charge United. The young chap from Spain showed right temperament with a great save which could be the point of his Man Utd. career.
One minute later the young leg of Young punished the Gunners for not equalizing the score with a stunning goal, a 20 yard curler which left Szczesny with no chance. It was a spot kick day for Rooney which began from the 41st minute free kick. The first goal from Rooney came from a free kick just outside the D-box. It was a well-executed free kick, but the ball was within the keeper’s reach and he should have pushed the shot to safety.
Welbeck pulled his hamstring, which will surely deprive England of his services against Bulgaria next week, being the only minor inconvenience, especially as his replacement was last season's star man Javier Hernandez.
In the stoppage time of play, Theo Walcott scored the first goal for the visitors. The United defenders were not aware of the situation and De Gea could not keep the goal away.
Had Van Persie's first-time volley found the net instead of being superbly repelled by De Gea , they would have been back in with a chance.
Once again, though, United responded to Arsenal missing a chance and they made it 4-1 eleven minute later when Rooney netted another free kick after being fouled by Djourou. England's number one striker to replicate his landmark United goal with his 151st.
Park joined the party with his stunning goal. The nightmare for Arsenal grew even bigger , when Carl Jenkinson was sent off for hauling down Hernandez, having already been booked. Van Persie grabbed a consolation goal for his team though. Evra was brought down by Walcott, allowing Rooney to complete his hat-trick from the spot and then, in stoppage time, Young added an eighth.
Altogether 5 yellow cards were shown with 2 for home and 3 for visitors, one red for pity Arsenal
Joy for United, pain for Arsenal.
United victory was cherished by almost 75,000 Red Devils fan at The Threatre of Dreams.
Glory Glory Man United.......
