Wayne Rooney scored a hat-trick as Manchester United handed Arsenal an embarrassing 8-2 beating at Old Trafford.
The Gunners are now anchored just above the relegation zone at the end of a thoroughly miserable day for north London, with Tottenham shipping five against Manchester City.
Danny Welbeck and Ashley Young scored either side of a missed Robin van Persie penalty before Rooney cut loose, Nani and Park Ji-sung also finding the net for the rampant hosts before Young finished them off in stoppage time.
