Arsenal v Manchester United for so long a definitive fixture in the Premier League era, this time around what is its significance? Obviously a few weeks ago, and despite everything, it could have been a season defining game. As it stands it’s a chance to make a comparison between the current Arsenal team and the Champions elect. Since the move to the Emirates there have been a handful of games that truly stand out. One of those games was the 2 -1 victory with Nasri scoring a brace; one of the best games of football seen in terms of both teams quality. Nasri's second an exceptional piece of team work and a great finish http://youtu.be/eDZFoxQIVe8
The other game is the 2-1 victory that rocked the stadium; Rooney’s opening goal cancelled out by RVP and Henry’s late late winner igniting the Emirates atmosphere for the first time. What is notable about this moment is that (towards the end of the clip)the then captain can be seen calling for mental strength and focus to see out the victory in the dying embers; a sharp contrast to current events ttp://youtu.be/ze0EtTU39wc
To my mind there have been only two truly great games at home this season; the victories against Chelsea ttp://youtu.be/cMsDSQIc5R0 and Barcelona http://youtu.be/kNOQ66x9Vdw
Let’s see if the boys can give us one last reason to be cheerful on Sunday before the long summer of recuperation, speculation and, no doubt, frustration.
Come on Gunners
