United sweep Gunners aside at Emirates

Published Add your comment

Manchester United moved to within a point of Barclays Premier League leaders Chelsea as title rivals Arsenal were swept aside 3-1 at Emirates Stadium.

Nani opened the scoring on 33 minutes when his chip across goal was palmed in by Arsenal keeper Manuel Almunia, before in-form England striker Wayne Rooney swept home a second following a quick counter attack.

A third on the break from Ji-Sung Park at the start of the second half effectively ended the contest, although defender Thomas Vermaelen netted a consolation for the out-muscled Gunners.
