Man Utd v Arsenal review – Winner gives Danny a dream return to Old Trafford

A dream return to his former club for Danny Welbeck who scored an excellent second goal for Arsenal to give us a 2-1 win, breaking the Old Trafford hoodoo and putting us into an FA cup semi-final.

Both Arsenal and Manchester United started with real intent at Old Trafford. Alexis Sanchez was getting some joy against their right back Valencia and had an early shot when he cut inside and nearly created panic. But Hector Bellerin picked up an early booking and United were also getting some joy down the flanks, with a couple of free kicks and corners giving us problems.

Fellaini nearly got free in the box after 14 minutes but lost control at the key moment. The tempo was high and both teams were pressing hard without the ball, even Ozil, which also meant that the passing from both was not as accurate. In the 20th minute we left Fellaini with too much space in the box again but his pull back for Young was just too heavy.

Chamberlain then blew a good opportunity for Arsenal and then had another great burst stopped by Rojo, who should have been booked like Bellerin was for a similar tackle. Then in the 25th minute, just after a brilliant bit of defending by Koscielny, we got the opening goal with a great finish by Monreal after great work by Chamberlain.

But the lead lasted just a few minutes as we failed to pick up Rooney and allowed him a free header from Di Maria’s cross. Way too easy. Welbeck had a half decent penalty claim denied and his own header saved shortly after. Szczesny got away with a fumbling another Di Maria cross but it was bit worrying.

It was fast and furious stuff as the half wore on and both teams were creating chances. Shezzer saved at the near post after Di Maria broke free and then De Gea smothered a Cazorla free kick just before the break which came with no more goals. Van Gaal made two changes at halftime, with Jones and Carrick replacing Shaw and Herrera to suggest he wanted more solidity at the back and more control in midfield.

They were bossing possession as well before Arsenal were forced into ouw own change as the Ox pulled a hamstring and Ramsey came on. We soon got our first good chance of the half but a deflection tok tyhe sting from Alexis’ shot. Ramsey made a difference in winning the midfield battle and Arsenal were the team pressing more.

Fellaini and Young saw yellow and then Monreal did just enough to make Di Maria shoot wide. But Danny Welbeck made no mistake when he pounced on a back pass, beat De Gea and fired in on the hour mark to get his dream return to his former club.

United pushed hard to get another quick reply and they wanted a second yellow for Bellerin for a tackle so Wenger wisely replaced him with Chambers. The Gunners looked determined to hold firm this time though, working hard and biting into tackles as we did at Man City. And we still looked dangerous when we got the ball and went looking for a third and killer goal.

Giroud came on with around 15 minutes left and was involved at the start of a great move which ended in Cazorla being denied by a fantastic De Gea save. Then Di Maria got a second yellow for a bad reaction and it looked like being our night. Maybe it was nerves but we got a bit sloppy after that when we should have been making the extra man count. Arsenal fans were holding our breath as the whistle went after Januzaj claimed a foul in the box but it was a dive and he was rightly booked.

United were lumping it up to Fellaini and trying for the second ball and we had five minutes of stoppage time to endure although Ozil or Sanchez should have scored with a minute left. It didn’t matter though as Arsenal recorded a rare and vital win over the old enemy. Youuuuu Gunners!!

                  an is known for her ‘warm welcomes’

                  COME ON YOU GOONERSSS

              3. muda says:

                Unfortunately Ospina won’t play in FA, coz he is arsenal’s no 1. FA is meant for 2nd GK

            2. ArseneIsYourDaddy says:

              Muffs is so happy, she might kiss me on the mouth.

          2. KickAssFan says:

            Januzaj dives so good, they named a fish after him.

            1. muffdiver says:

              anyone care to congratulate wenger?

              danny welbeck took that chance excellently, an covered alot of ground.
              yes he isnt always clinical, but giroud in the biggest games is a risk, an slows play

              monreal for gibbs- fantastic call wenger
              game defining choice

              took off bellerin at the perfect time

              well done arsene

              1. sevenitti says:

                Giroud is our best player in big games, as he has shown us all season by scoring in these big games and working his ass off in defense.

                Good job Wenger, fantastic match by both manager and players!

              2. seancali says:

                What are you talking about? Giroud was rested today and Wenger started with danny cuz he knew how motivated Danny was to score against manure and show those losers what a mistake they have done.still giroud is our main man in attack.giroud will score every time he starts,wait for another giroud goal against west ham

                1. disgusted1 says:

                  Good game I like the result I hope we can do it again in the premier league. I hope Man U don’t make top 4. Contrary to what most people thinks I don’t think van gyaal is that good of a coach and for me I was a fan of David Moyes and I believe he was treated unfairly, at times we are hard on our manager but we don’t know what constraints he was working with and I think we have a solid group of players that can compete.

              3. jaweant says:

                Arsene actually did a good job. The ref was amazing. I wasn’t sure we’d get this result. Great f’in day .

          3. seancali says:

            Great job by the players.I am so happy for danny boy. Great goal,well taken.Sanchez should have scored or passed that last ball to giroud,but who gives a damn,job done.well done everyone. Another trophy less season for manure,lol…..I’m so fukin happy.rvp can go on and cry his asss off.well done danny boy. Just what we all wanted a win and danny to score.yèeeeeeeeeees. coyg

        2. galaxygooner says:

          Wenger.
          Give coqueliin a new contract fast before we go broke.
          That is adding like £10,000 per week to his salary every match.

      2. Maltese Gooner says:

        Ironically enough Welbeck scored the winning goal in similar fashion to Giggs’ all those years back. LOL! COYGGGGGGGG

      3. Cappieee says:

        The little boy inside WELLBECK told him to jubilate #Legends.

    2. Arsenal DNA says:

      All those of you who thought we will not win this game please raise you hands….. MOMT is WELBECK . .. for winning the game on his old turf and celebrating…

      1. medvet says:

        MOTM: Monreal and the cock

      2. KickAssFan says:

        Yeah, felt orgasmic that it had to be Welbeck who scored the winner.

      3. Goonsquad8 says:

        F*CK THE HATERS WE F*CKING DID IT!!!
        ON TO WEMBLEY

      4. Tas says:

        I thought the MOTM went to Arsenal away suporters

    3. SoOpa AeoN says:

      i Love me my ARSENAL to the Moon and Back

      1. ArseneIsYourDaddy says:

        Damn, is that you? you are usually crying !!

        1. SoOpa AeoN says:

          @ Daddy’s boy……if you’d Looked critically, you’d see me write “ARSENAL” boldly…..ain’t scared of blasting the manager or the players when they put up nasty performances as well as praise em when they put up decent performances…..unlike u, who pretends to be cozy and all supportive while carrying a secret grudge….. God is watching!

          1. ArseneIsYourDaddy says:

            Dude for 25 years I have been an Arsenal fan. I have never ever booed a player, never ever said or thought Wenger out.
            I am a loyal fan, 100%. I WILL SUPPORT ANY PLAYER THAT PUTS ON THE SHIRT.

    1. Big Gun says:

      Longball United went down to 10 men compliments of Diver Maria. What a bunch of cheating c*nts really glad Danny scored, he should have ran past Van Gaal, looked him in the eye with a mouth full of teeth. Well played gunners WELL PLAYED. De Gea is one heck of a keeper though I wouldn’t mind him in our team.

      WHO THE HELL ARE AN UNITED, WHO THE HELL ARE MAN UNITED, WHO THE HELL ARE MAN UNITED. UP THE GUNNERS!!!!!!!!!!!!

      1. KickAssFan says:

        Yeah, MUFCkers lost to us.

        HE WAS HERE ALL ALONGGGG

        1. medvet says:

          now, we need a little of competition in that spot.

          @muffdiver
          AW sent Le Coq to the “Gravel Pit” and he got his WU Tang on…He was all over Felliani’s azz like a cheap suit…

          1. muffdiver says:

            i remember saying to everyone…its only been a few games.
            le coq is not ready – calm down

            boy hes proved alot of ppl wrong

            1. NY_Gunner says:

              @muffdiver
              Big Ups to him. He’s just doin what he has to do to keep his spot. And he’s doin it very well…

  6. Jim A says:

    I wonder if some of those dives in the Fergie era would have been PK’s. He absolutely bullied the refs. Not today Fergie, not today!

    1. NY_Gunner says:

      @Jim A
      Exactly…
      Still don’t know how Fellaini stayed on though. Le Coq was all over his azz though.

      1. KickAssFan says:

        That’s what a good Cock does: stand up strong and tof!!!

    the away fans are the best¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡

  15. Justsoccerfan says:

    Is been so long long time that I so enjoy of being arsenal fan.

  16. andyarsenal05 says:

    Everyone performed well but Monreal MOTM for me. Scored the goal and defended brilliantly. I still wonder why people question him and placing Gibbs over him.

    1. KickAssFan says:

      See, when a player is underperforming, someone else who’s better takes his place. Monreal wasn’t this good before this time and Gibbs was better, so Gibbs was preferred.

      But now, Monreal”s form is very good, better than Gibbs and that’s why he’s starting…

      1. ClassiqueGunner says:

        @kickAssFan!! Spot on… just abt the way it is… absolute spot on mate.

        1. KickAssFan says:

          Tnx

  17. Greg says:

    Well done gunners! We broke that manu hoodoo! Coyg!

  18. GOONSTER says:

    Monreal is a real defender.. Wow..

    The Coq fought against the lamp post (Fellaini) and he came out on top.

    Santi was amazing too..

    All in all the team was solid and we looked comfortable..

  19. Goonerforever says:

    S**T why am i shivering…

    1. KickAssFan says:

      Lol! Happens whenever a spell is broken in one’s life.

  20. ArsenalGenes says:

    Why the hell arsenal can’t keep possession under pressure? Why ramsey keeps on losing possession in the last minute?? Why Arsenal din’t believe they could win against United? Why We can’t keep calm? Anyways.. You know what we won at Old Trafford.. Oh yeah baby..

    1. kzm says:

      Not today please, give us a break

  21. Hafiz Rahman says:

    congrats on the win…not a very good play but thanks for the memories

    time for a change!!

      hahahahaahahahaha so good

    2. Big Gun says:

      Time for a change. Hafiz OUT!

        not just out. launched like a frisbee

        hafiz try an be positive- once in ur life

        1. NY_Gunner says:

          @muffdiver
          I think Hafiz needs a prison pen pal or a puppy or somethin…

    3. Titi14 says:

      You are a very sick man. Yes you are.

  22. Greg says:

    Gunners march on! Victory over the enemy! Coyg!

  23. John Legend says:

    Happy Gunners round the world

    1. John Legend says:

      The icing on the cake is Welbeck netting the winner. If we eventually win the FA Cup, it will be a memorable one.

      I hope we learn to play this way sometimes, pressing from the opponents half, it really paid off today. The tactics here was different from the one at the Etihad.

      I just dont like Rooney’s record against Arsenal, right from his case Everton days.

      Good and memorable win at Old Garage….. hahaha

  24. andyarsenal05 says:

    De Gea you are amazing. Please leave Man U. Haha.

  25. gooner4ever says:

    I am so happy for Danny. He really deserved that!!!!

  26. Greg says:

    That what u get for digging deep! Victory!!!! Gunners 4 life!

  41. Demwan Jones says:

    Van Gaal o Van gaal trophyless
    Van gaal o van gaal trophyless. Great win to be honest and kudos to wojiech for making good saves. De gea must be a wizard I swear

  42. Sumo says:

    Fcuk united.

    1. Big Gun says:

      They still couldn’t win after cheating. Rooney and De Gea only decent players they got, the rest are all average/poor. Smalling is probably getting a lashing from Van Gaal right now lol. Watching United tonight reminded me of playing Fifa – long balls all game, cheap tactic.

      ONTO THE SEMIS GUNNERS!

  43. KickAssFan says:

    @Medvet, with a strong cock, you are guaranteed great performance.

    1. NY_Gunner says:

      @kickassfan
      “Priceless”…

      1. medvet says:

        hahahahah, that is a universal truth….

        1. KickAssFan says:

          LOL @y’all

  44. Seetsuma says:

    Great win, the best draw possible for the semi finals. It’s a good day to be a Gunner!

  45. RSH says:

    lets be honest. Nobody threw down money on Welbeck scoring…. SO GLAD HE DID THOUGH! FINALLY OT curse is over! We’re finally getting better at these big games. Everyone was comitted, nobody hid. Monreal hands down MOTM, Ozil, Cazorla, Coquelin were all class, and Ramsey also had a strong cameo. If it werent for David De Gea it wouldve been 4-1 probably.

  46. Matt says:

    Absolutely f*cking buzzing, I hate Man U almost as much as Spurs and it hurt so bad we never beat them but tonight we have and I’m loving it.

    1. muffdiver says:

      you need to have more faith prior to games
      i was unsure but cant go into games saying we will lose.

      always believe 🙂

      1. NY_Gunner says:

        @muffdiver
        Thats what I’m sayin. People sayin”We can’t do it now, because we haven’t done it before” is a serious “buzzkill”…

  47. RWRW says:

    Going to wake up the Mrs, I am going to have a hard on for the next month

    too much? lol

    1. NY_Gunner says:

      @RWRW
      Rock out with your Coq out dude…LOL

      1. Goonsquad8 says:

        hahaha @NY that made me lol well played

  48. fred cowardly says:

    I’m soooooooo happy

    Not only did we win
    Not only we go to Semi- Finals of FA Cup
    But we beat United @ Old Trafford
    Awesome night.

    But I must say de Gea is a keeper
    Other keepers and we would have won 1-4 or 5

    Also Mertsacker played well. Szczesny played good enough but Ospina should stay number 1

    Fantastic Win
    Now we MUST win the FA Cup AGAIN
    COYG

  49. Justsoccerfan says:

    This win will make our players thick and confident. Finally we find a really good ref who don’t do dive.

  50. Green Gunner says:

    I love Ian Wright! Biased commentary taken to a whole new level!
    Le Coq gets MOTM.
    Nice!

  51. Big Gun says:

    We criticize Wenger when we lose. Let’s praise him tonight, he kept Welbeck on when all of us where asking him to come off, and he ended up using his pace to score that wonderful goal. BIG UPS WENGER TONIGHT YOU ARE THE MAN

    1. RSH says:

      agree. I thought Wenger f8cked it up again, but it worked really well today. Credit where credits due.

      1. ArseneIsYourDaddy says:

        Shows why he is a manager are we are fans.

    2. ymoola says:

      Agreed!! Especially Bellerin sub

  52. Hafiz Rahman says:

    we are lucky….in Fergie era…these dives would have been become penalties

  53. Green Gunner says:

    Glad to see proper Refereeing. Wise move taking Bellerin off.

  54. GOONSTER says:

    Martin Keown can’t stop smiling in Phil Nevilles face. He can’t stop grinning.

    lol.

  55. mesüt says:

    The next monkey off our backs is chelsea.

  56. Ig says:

    WELCOME HOME, DANNY.

  57. luvdaguns says:

    we play the winner of bradford/reading, sweet,,, best moments? valencia trying to keep up w Sanchez, or Ox threading the needle to Nacho, or Giroud tracking back on 94′ and dispoccessing, Welbec getting the winner, Santi’s defensive pressure, sublime match,

  58. cheeterspotter says:

    Rooney spent more time trying to get players booked, sent off or non excistant penalties

    1. NY_Gunner says:

      @cheeterspotter
      It did seem sort of sad that they were relying on dives and trying to get our players sent off in order to win at home. As if they knew they were gonna get beaten…

  59. Robin Vanpayslip says:

    Wenger zipping his jacket made the match highlights.

    1. Big Gun says:

      That humour…:D I gotta work tomorrow but right now I feel like cracking open some cold ones and celebrating! OOO TO BE A GOONA

  72. kingson says:

    I like how Wenger said ” Thank you for giving us Danny Welbeck”, as he shook hands with Van gaal.

    1. robertosante says:

        hahahah

      2. john0711 says:

        She’s hot stuff guys I bet

  79. Aussie Jack says:

    Arsenal maintained a high level which was good to see, I fully expected them to drop their bundle in the last ten minutes but they didn`t. Only criticism, I prefer Ospina to Szczeseny.
    Arsenal v Liverpool semi would cause an earthquake in my house. The wife is a Scouse and I`m from the Seven Sisters.

  80. Cappieee says:

    I feel i have not celebrated this Win Enough. My body keeps feel uneasy. THAT SURE IS A SIGN OF VICTORY. UP GUNNERSSSSSSSSS. What planet is Degea from.

  81. Burton says:

    Hahahaaaa!!!!!!
    Arsenal fans overboard. We have broken several records this season.
    we will beat Monaco, and Chelsea, then we will be number two in epl. In Champions legue we will go till final. Mark my words!!

    1. ArseOverTit says:

      Yeh, let’s keep it real shall we?

  82. ArsenalForLife says:

    These days Alexis is getting too much greedy…he was doing some unnecessary dribbling..Over all i’m so facking happy! We could have score 3-4 goals..a win is a win! after all at Oldtraford !

  83. ArseOverTit says:

    Monreal was class. Coq shut em down and
    Wellbeck made and took a rare chance.

    Let’s hope it’s the start of something good for him.

    COYG!!!

  84. mark says:

    I’m glad we showed that Man U are no longer the force they were, and the referee confirmed that by punishing their pathetic attempts to score a free kick or penalty. In days of old they would have been given one of those..

    Some great performances from the team, notably Cazorla, Monreal, Coquelin, Mertesacker….well pretty much every one of the starting 11 had a decent game.

    The ref also had a great game, and I for one would like to see more refereeing like this, to stamp out the dark diving side of the game.

    A win that should boost our confidence and mental strength for the remainder of the season. 😀

  85. NickTheYank says:

    United fans singing “Same old cheating Arsenal” and they have 2 players sent off for diving. Welbz scoring the winner at Old Trafford. Ozil running the midfield like a Boss. All priceless!!!!

  86. fullmetalalc says:

    ManU fans giving Van Gaal stick for unnecessarily changing a working plan after first half. And we here keep giving Wenger stick for not making subs at all. The grass is always greener on the other side eh?

  87. ymoola says:

    What a result!!!! Monreal MOTM for me. He dealt Di Maria and Valencia very well.

    1. luvdaguns says:

      and scored a cracker

  88. vitman says:

    The referee made some important decissions in that match especilly when they wanted to con him by their diving tricks. Good performance by all the players and good tactics from wenger.

  89. luvdaguns says:

    tonites entertainment in san francisco, 1 cuban cigar, 1 six pack of beer, rewatch recording of arsenal thumping Man Utd, then watch Arsenal thumping City for the 10th time for an encore, gonna be a great nite!

    1. ArseneIsYourDaddy says:

      Stay out the bar on Geary

      1. luvdaguns says:

        i promise, the SF Arsenal club is located on Grant, 🙂

  90. fred cowardly says:

    Bradford or Reading NEXT in FA Cup
    And maybe Liverpool in the Final

    We MUST win this trophy now

    It would be cool for Alexis to lift a trophy in his first year and for us to win 2 FA Cups back to back.

    COYG

  91. Hafiz Rahman says:

    Diving their way to the top 4….terrible

  92. Sergio says:

    Wicked game and a great win.

    Seriously though, do you even re-read articles before you post them?

    1. mike says:

      no he doesn’t lol let alone run a spell checker lol COYG!!!!

  93. Hafiz Rahman says:

    like i said…no De Gea Utd wld have relegated….

    1. YAYA22 says:

      but you only just stole this comment :0 😉

      1. Hafiz Rahman says:

        search past archives…

  94. YAYA22 says:

    If le prof wins us the fa cup again and ends up 3th/2nd place in the pl i’m gonna laugh at all the AW haters i met in the last 10 years. Arsenal IS in a new era now. city win, united. Only have to beat chelsea at home now and we have the confidence to win the pl next season. COYG

    1. YAYA22 says:

      and winning the final against liverpool.hahahahahahahahaa..

  95. mohawk says:

    Love the comments.

    I LISTENED to the game on satellite radio while traveling and the obviously-manu commentators rarely mentioned Monreal at all. I had to read the comments here to find out the real story.

  96. Ks-Gunner says:

    De Gea is insane good. What a keeper he is. Cong to Danny and all Arsenal fans. Manure tryed to be manure but their bs didnt worked today so gbye you fu%ckers.

  97. ArseneIsYourDaddy says:

    Man U might have to sell De Gea for $100 million and buy 4 players.

    Hard choice, their best player may have to go.

    1. Hafiz Rahman says:

      De Gea only has 1 year left in his contract……100m is already a bagain

    2. NY_Gunner says:

      @ArseneISYourDaddy
      IF one of the big 2 in Spain come knocking, he’s gone quick fast and in a hurry…

  98. Ronny331 says:

    Welbecks face at the final whistle was like ‘oh sh*t what have I done? !’. Great team performance memorable moment for me was santi tackle near the half way line. Only negative ox is likely out for a while he was immense before he got injured. Maybe theo will get some gane time now? Hope mu fail to get top 4 and de gea pushes for a move back to spain, what a keeper if not for him wed have 3 or 4 tonight. Well done michael oliver, referees afraid to make bold decisions at old trafford? Not anymore! 🙂

  99. Ronny331 says:

    @fredcowardly. Let’s get pass reading/bradford first, remember the game against wigan last year. Also feel its a little harsh on villa and Blackburn to suggest at this stage pool will be in the final

    1. fred cowardly says:

      I said “Maybe”. Liverpool is the second highest ranked team left in the tournament. And it would be awesome to play them IF we win the Semis

      In fact it’s possible for Liverpool to lose in the replay. But nothing wrong with predictions. If you look up I’m not the only one thinking about beating our next opponents and playing Liverpool in the final. Again, we may lose in the Semis but nothing wrong with being excited and making predictions

      Anyway, don’t take comments so seriously. At the end of the day it’s more important for the players to concentrate on each game, one game at a time.

  100. Arsenal Fan says:

    I’ve said in the last 24months it is a new era for Arsenal FC. We can now compete in the business of all matters Football.

    In that time we can add winning at Old Trafford again after too long without and a trophy. Let’s now add another trophy.

    1. I am starting to change my mind on Coquelin. I felt he was a squad man, but if he carried on beyond just playing on confidences and belief and a whole season like this Thant why not? Why not become our sniper in defensive midfield.
    2. Welbeck had a tuff match, but he showed what it takes to be a top forward and score when it matters. He pasted another educational moment in his young career that will only make him better.
    3. Another to do thing ticked off our list of little strides needed to feel the belief we can go on and do more of in the seasons ahead.
    4. We played well, not great but well and sometimes that is better than a sporadic performance. Today we showed we can get through big games with the ability to read the game and come out with a positive.

    And finally, congratulations to Wenger for a historic victory which will live in the memories for a long time to come….

    1. Hafiz Rahman says:

      not good enough…

      not a big name big tag or big game player…..not big and strong either

      Wanayamam, Schenerlin or Matic would have done a better job than Coq
