Arsenal snatched a draw from the jaws of defeat against Manchester United thanks to Olivier Giroud’s last-gasp headed equaliser.

The France international powered home Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s cross in the 89th minute to earn a precious point for the Gunners, who weren’t at their best at Old Trafford but ultimately did enough to seal a draw.

Considering Giroud’s late goal earned a point for Arsene Wenger’s men against Jose Mourinho’s side at Old Trafford, some fans on Twitter felt Martin Tyler’s commentary was too muted.

“Well, they’ve got something in them,” Tyler said before Oxlade-Chamberlain crossed to the back post.

Sky Sports’ lead commentator then said “It is! Olivier Giroud! 1-1!”.

Okay, so it wasn’t a ‘Macheda!’ or ‘Ji!’ moment from the legendary commentator, but Arsenal fans felt the 71-year-old should have sounded a bit more excited.
