Arsenal beat Manchester United 2-1

Arsenal beat Manchester United 2-1 in a pulsating match at the Emirates yesterday. It was a must win game for the Gunners both in terms of their slim title hopes and their dented team morale.

Arsene Wenger's team had been widely criticised in the media after enduring a run of bad results over the last two weeks, but they showed yesterday that on their day they are one of the best teams in Europe. Samir Nasri was the hero grabbing a goal in either half, while Arsenal's much maligned defence just about held United at bay.

Sir Alex Ferguson's side pulled a goal back in injury-time through Brazilian teenager Rafeal De Silva, but ultimately they were left to rue missed chances by Rooney and Ronaldo. The result sees the Gunners move into third place with United now eight points adrift of Liverpool and Chelsea.
