Robin van Persie’s 27th minute goal for Manchester United, condemned Arsenal to its second loss of the campaign and reduce its lead to two points from Liverpool. Here are the 5 major talking points of the big clash:

Most ‘open’ league
The last match saw former champions Manchester City go down 1-0 to struggler’s, Sunderland. Elsewhere, Tottenham Hotspurs too went down by a goal to Newcastle United. Chelsea dropped points too and with Arsenal also losing, the league race will go down to the wire! No wonder this is the ‘best league’ in the world.

Robin at it again!
Former Arsenal player Robin van Persie scored yet again (twice last season) and his strike proved to be the crucial winner. The Dutchman just ‘loves’ to score against his former employers.

Arsenal’s bench strength is WEAK!
The Gunners were outplayed and out-muscled by the United team and it showed on the pitch. A draining German trip must have taken a toll on the Gunners and Arsene had no one to turn to on the substitutes bench. Their bench is weak and Arsene really needs to buy a star striker to cover up Olivier Giroud.

Manchester United are in the Title mix
With the win over Arsenal, David Moyes’ men have found themselves in the Title race yet again. Just two months ago, defeats and bad performances left the Red Devils and it’s loyal fans disappointed but with Sunday’s result, Moyes has found a new voice again!

Wayne Rooney, MUFC’s new hero!
It was his corner kick that met with Persie’s header and went past the Arsenal goal. Wayne Rooney’s name was sung in every corner of the Old Trafford and he deserved every bit of it. He ran, he passed, he tackled; ‘Roo’ was all-over the pitch for the Red Devils. This season, if Manchester United are to prove their title credentials, Rooney’s form will be key in getting there.
