Arsenal v Man Utd review – Stunning start gets Gunners brilliant win

The only complaint that I can have with the Arsenal performance today was that we did not score more goals. I have no problems at all with the way we eased off and sat back after storming into a three goal lead against Manchester United.

What a start though. Electric stuff from the attacking players of Arsenal and United just could not deal with the crisp incisive passing of Ozil, Cazorla and Ramsey and the pace and movement of Alexis and Walcott. Boom, boom, boom and the Gunners were three goals up after only 20 minutes.

A brilliant improvised Alexcis finish from Ozil’s cut back was quickly followed by a well taken first goal of the season from the German and he also provided the assist for Alexis to score his second and our third with a scorching long range strike.

United looked lost and the game was over. Well it was after we then took stock and became more solid and compact and with Cech making a few key saves, Arsenal managed to stop the visitors getting a goal back and gaining impetus. That was a perfect way to hit back after the Chsampions League nightmare and we head into the international break in second and buzzing. COYFG

    I guess that is the difference between Ozil and Mata..
    The fast incisive counter suits ozil, coz he starts it..
    In your face United fans..

          (A) Cech is now Mr. Clean of the premier league…worth mentioning.
          (B) Ozil 1 goal, 4 assists in 8 epl games, how bad is that??
          (C) Walcott is officially a striker
          (D) Alexis 6 goals in 3 games simply WORLD CLASS

      Indeed and they were saying that Mata is what Arsenal fans ‘pretend’ Ozil to be. Every player has their day, but let’s be honest Ozil is better when both are on form and that’s what counts. United looked absolutely dumbfounded the first half it was great to watch. Our passing was slick and precise and Ramsey should have made it four. Second half, Van Gaal made some good changes and they seemed to claw their way back a little bit, but I think we were solid 95% of the game. Cech made some brilliant saves and they were right, he will win us a few games this season. Another great buy by Wenger, never felt so calm with him in goals. Looking forward to going to work tomorrow, half the office are United fans!

          They most certainly are not! Today we can clearly see who is an Arsenal fan and who’s not. If a 3 nil win against a team we haven’t beaten for a while in premier league added with that blistering start does not make fans happy, then we clearly know what/who they are. It would be too obvious to ignore.

        You know Arsenal know quite well how to bottle it when they are just at the point of doing something special. I enjoyed those minutes. They were not scared to shoot when needed and got in the face of Manure players. I guess the Walcott and Sanchez was the reason the attack was buoyant, it give Oil confidence to deliver. Giroud would have made that attack slower and impotent.

    Don’t call me negative. While I can say I am happy with the win, i am not too happy. We should have scored 7 goals to compensate the other 8 they hit us.

Alexis and Walcott are a handful now! Lets not get carried away its a fantastic day but we havnt won anything. I said before the league is the only thing that will see him by summer 2016 imo.

    Love the fact we won 3-0 at home in a big top4 game against nobody else than Utd and did it in style… 2 i may add. 1st half dominant passing, pressing and possesion with quality runs, dribbles and finishes from our front 3 boys in Alexis, Ozil and walcott. All thats missing is a left footed alexis type for the RW because Ramsey is a central midfielder, did well but not a winger! 2nf half closed down the space, pressed and supported every player wearing the badge today… ate all up utds attack was in near enough no danger. Very happy and very impressed.

    Moving forward though, Bayern won 5-1 at home to Dortmund today also so champions league is going to be extra difficult to get out of the group and i dont think we can considern bayerns form but if we play like this today home/away we are in for 2 cracker european games 👍

    Nobody is hiding and saying wenger out but look its one game, if we win the league the by all means the AOB (me incl) will say we were wrong and Wenger knew what he was doing but imo and others he has to win the league to stay at Arsenal.

        In all fairness McClaren did very well with FC Twente.

    Very very happy with. Sanchez ( He runs the show), Coquelin, Cech. Walcott. ( never have seen him run so muce h).

    Not happy with: Ramsey, Giroud, Merti. ( We need to exchang them with better quality).Thses misses where so bad, i felt truly sick watching them miss them.

    The others did very good and i salute them.

    Dont hate man. Let us be happy today. Mayb we should give up on the Cl and play only for the leauge.

    If we put that much effort in and played at that tempo every week , people like me would have no reason to complain …

    We got at them , we wanted it more , we had a game plan , we changed a game plan and shut them out !

    We should be doing this week in week out , do this for the rest of the season wenger and u will win me back , I’m not anti wenger , I’m anti poor football … And that was anything but poor football !

    Credit where it’s due , we were superb from top to bottom !

    The Headline is not flattering at all..

    I mean we just gave Manchester United a proper trashing at long last!

    ‘Awesome Arsenal crush, destroy and dismantle sorry United team’

    Over the moon today! I hope this sparks off a good run for us. Last season that 2-0 against city got us off to brilliant run. I hope the confidence boost of beating a big team convincingly sparks off a good run of results.

    In a pre-match comment I suggested United would win, I was wrong and happy to admit it.
    I am one of many who have been critical of Wenger`s selections but this time both he and I selected the same eleven (aren`t I clever?) so I had no excuses had we lost. Well done Arsenal and well done Wenger.

    As a side note – we just walked Man Utd’s very expensive attack back to their play pen, locked the door and patted them on the head…without Koscielny. Seriously our best defender was in the stands and we still made Rooney, Martial, Mata and Depay look about as threatening as a bar of soap. Nice to see Gabriel keeping it nice and tight. Coquelin, Bellerin, Monreal all had great games to boot. I can’t even moan about Mertesacker (though he tried to give them chances as best as he could :-P)

    What an absolutely flawless first 20 mins from arsenal, the best I’ve seen in ages. I was in a dream land at half time. Hope we become more consistent after this moral boosting win…… UP GUNNERS!
