Arsenal fans gifted wanted result from Liverpool-United match

Manchester United travelled to Anfield to take on Liverpool last night, and Arsenal fans got their desired resultĀ from the encounter.

Gunners fans were asked to vote on which result was best to come from Red Monday for our side, and a whopping 78% agreed that a draw would be best for Arsenal.

There will be many happy North-Londoners today, although any fans who actually made the effort to watch the encounter will not be overly pleased from a neutral point-of-view. The game was not the most exciting match I have seen this season, and could really have found my time better spent sleeping.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho seemingly parked the bus in the final 20 minutes of the match, and seemed happy to nick a point at Anfield thanks to some supreme saves from David De Gea in the goal-mouth.

It’s been some time since a United fan would have been pleased with one point from an encounter with their long-time rivals, but in this case, they have to be. The Merseysiders however will be frustrated at having failed to score after dominating much of the game.

Liverpool missed their chance to join Manchester City and us at the top of the table last night, while their opponents also failed to capitalise on a number of their rivals having dropped points.

United are now at risk of falling eight points behind us and City next week, with a trip to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea next in their schedule, and a loss will certainly lead to a number of people ruling out their title hopes after only nine Premier League matches.

Must Liverpool now be taken seriously? Should we now want United to beat Chelsea to help our title aspirations?

    Winning our matches is the key and beating our rivals home and away leads us to title.
    Man U played rubbish and people were talking about tactics. After spending so much?
    Then I will take Arsene over Jose.
    I love my Arsenal.

    The media in england is ridiculous. I listened to podcast after podcast praising mourinho for getting his ‘tactics’ right, are you F kidding me? He gets praised for parking the bus? Then when Arsenal comes up ‘oh well, they will falter in November again’… This is a blessing in disguise for us, as we play better when the pressure is off with no expectations because we all know for some reason once the talk of ‘title fav’ comes up we begin to crumble. I honestly think wenger is doing all the right moves this year, i think he’s deliberately holding ramsay and giroud back until November for TOT/Man U. Maybe he’ll give me my wish and play 2 ST up front for once so we can begin to really terrify teams in the PL.

    Pressing high does not constitute to parkING the bus. Liverpool were second best for 65 minutes. Their first real test came after 6th minute. Let us not forget this was the same liverpool who ripped us apart and the same Liverpool who beat chelsea at the bridge. Jose as much as we hate does deserve credit for stopping them and stopping their hype..

      Mourinho firstly wanted to stop liverpool scoring and hoped to nick a goal and win it. He achieved his main aim. The good news for us is that the draw suited us and it has shown other teams how to frustrate liverpool.

      Mourinho would appear to have manu playing as he wants. Talk of manu being out of the title race if they lose their next game is way too premature.
