LONDON -- A trio of observations from Manchester United's 2-1 win vs. Arsenal in the Premier League.
1. Old-school United sink Arsenal
Dominance, calamity and then agony. Even when Arsenal and Manchester United are in the reduced circumstances of beginning their day in sixth and seventh, the game plan is the same. Wayne Rooney's 80th minute strike, United's second goal, was a repeat of a formula that Sir Alex Ferguson revealed in his autobiography: Let Arsenal play, intercept and then counterattack.
