I am surprised to see so much negativity from some of my fellow Gooners after Arsenal lost to Man United on Saturday evening, because instead of it being another poor performance and result against a big EPL rival, it is fair to say that we were the better side and but for an unbelievably inspired game from their man in goal and some rotten luck, it would have been a famous and well deserved win.
The next time Arsenal come against the Manchester United side of Jose Mourinho, it will be at Old Trafford unless there is a cup clash before the end of April when our next Premier League clash with them is due to take place. The Gunners are also likely to have to find a way past their Spanish international keeper David De Gea.
Even though we know De Gea is one of the best in the world, I would still not expect him to be quite as unbeatable next time we face him than he was on Saturday and if Arsenal produce anything like the fluency and threat that we saw at the Emirates at the weekend you would expect a fair few goals, because despite being on the wrong end of a result I believe that Arsenal fans and the players should take plenty of positives from the game.
Do not forget that United and Mourinho have spent a fortune and they were in second before the win over Arsenal, so the fact that we dominated so much and made so many chances is a big thing, albeit very frustrating that it did not earn us anything.
Keep playing like that and the Gunners will beat almost anyone. Defensive mistakes from Mustafi and Koscielny especially are rare so do not let those get you down too much. It seems to be the thing this season that Arsenal are often not getting what we deserve but surely that cannot carry on throughout, so chin up Gooners and take heart from a great display that deserved a lot more.
