O'Shea strike gives United win

Published Add your comment

John O'Shea's early goal gave Manchester United a 1-0 win in their Champions League semi-final first leg against Arsenal at Old Trafford.

The home side dominated the early exchanges, and it was no surprise when their full-back put them in charge following a close-range finish after 16 minutes.

Arsenal keeper Manuel Almunia had an inspired night, saving brilliantly from both Carlos Tevez and Cristiano Ronaldo - who smashed a shot against the crossbar in the second half.
