United 8 - 2 Arsenal
Smalling Jones Evans Evra
Nani(Giggs) Cleverley Anderson(Park) Young
An incredible match with an eye-brow raising scoreline. United were simply awesome today and even the most ardent Liverpool fan would excuse me for sounding this excited. Arsenal are weak, true, but you can only beat what's put in front of you and we did that with aplomb. I've already seen some pathetic excuses that Arsenal had 5 players injured/suspended but then again, Rio, Vidic, Rafael, Carrick, Fletcher, Valencia and Berba weren't in our starting line up. So no excuses from that part dear Gunners, you have to have depth in squad to win the premier league!
|Welbeck on the scoresheet again! Will be out for some weeks though|
Earlier today I was impressed by a very good performance by our noisy neighbors and before every anti-united pundit started orgasming over City's good display of attacking football we scored 8 goals. That was the perfect reply. Rooney got a hat-trick with 2 fine freekicks and a well taken penalty. Young scored two beauties...goals which I can only envision on FIFA11. These players had a 5 star performance while the others had a 4 star game. Nani, who was a tad frustrating during the game, scored an outrageously audacious chip while Park and Welbeck got their names on the scoresheet as well. The only negatives from this game was probably Welbeck's apparent hamstring injury and Evans' clumsy challenge to give away a penalty. De Gea had a very good game today, he saved a penalty shot and made 3 other excellent saves. Could have done better to keep out Arsenal's first goal, in my opinion. Still, those saves should do him the world of good.
I'm not in the mood to keep writing. I'm just eager to go on a website and re-watch those stunning goals. What City can do, we can do it better....without spending ridiculous sums of money. Well done United, you were immense! Boring international break next and then a tricky encounter with Bolton. I'm off. We EIGHT Arsenal.
