Arsene Wenger got the response he wanted as Arsenal bounced back from turmoil to beat Manchester United 2-1, with Samir Nasri scoring twice at the Emirates Stadium.

Gunners boss Wenger admitted dressing-room morale was low after their draw with rivals Tottenham and defeat to Stoke - but the win breathes life into their campaign and lifts them above United in the Barclays Premier League table.

Nasri provided the attacking threat, taking advantage of slack marking in each half to grab his fourth and fifth of the season. Rafael da Silva, on as a substitute, volleyed home to give Sir Alex Ferguson's men hope - but there was no repeat of the memorable Spurs comeback.
