MOST COMMENTED

Manchester United took all three points in the first 'Top Four' clash of the season after a hard-fought win against Arsenal at Old Trafford. Arsenal struck first during a first half devoid of good chances when Andrey Arshavin struck a blast past from outside of the penalty area past United goalkeeper Ben Foster.

Against the run of play, United grabbed the equalizer when Arsenal goalkeeper Almunia clipped United's Wayne Rooney in the box. Rooney converted the penalty. Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby then gifted United the go-ahead goal after he deflected a Ryan Giggs free kick with his head into his own net. In search of an equalizer Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger sent on strikers Nicklas Bendtner and Eduardo but the Gunners simply couldn't restore their earlier attacking impetus despite five minutes of added time. A chaotic ending to the game saw Wenger sent to the stands as United held on for an important win to disrupt the Gunners' superb start to the season.
