Man U 1-2 Arsenal: Vote for Player-Ratings/MotM

A cracking match saw Arsenal go ahead midway through the first half courtesy of some nifty work from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, setting up Nacho Monreal who slotted past de Gea. The lead was short-lived, though, as Rooney flicked home a sharp header barely five minutes later. That's where it stood through halftime up until Welbeck scored on the hour beating de Gea to the ball and putting it home to make ir 1-2 and remind Van Gaal of what he's capable of. Shortly after that, Angel Di Maria, in a moment of madness snatched at referee Michael Oliver's jersey from behind. Oliver, showing a bit of bottle, sent him off, reducing Man U to two men. Far from denting their ambitions, though Man U started throwing everything forward and very nearly found their equalizer. De Gea made almost enough saves to earn himself another meme, but we're through to the next round our second win in 16 trips to Old Trafford. Bask in it, lads, but don't overdo it in the voting below!
