Another weekend, another record-setting performance for Lionel Messi. Okay, the master doesn't do it every time he plays, but in Barcelona's 5-1 win vs. Sevilla, Messi broke Telmo Zarra's all-time La Liga goals record of 251 with panache: He netted a hat trick to put his total at 253.

What we learned at Arsenal: De Gea needs a new deal, Rooney's class

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal says he wasn't pleased with first half, but United eventually claimed all three points.

Manchester United won for the first time away from home under Louis van Gaal -- their first win on the road in seven months -- but what else did we learn from the 2-1 victory at Arsenal?

David De Gea is United's best player

"Fortunately we have a very good goalkeeper," said Van Gaal in the aftermath of this crucial win.

For all bluster around Van Gaal's bold tactical shift and the calamity afflicting Arsenal's treatment room, were it not for De Gea, United could have been 3-0 down after 21 minutes.

Excuses aplenty for Louis van Gaal and Arsene Wenger

ESPN FC's Craig Burley wasn't impressed by either Arsenal or Manchester United in Saturday's feature match.

A common complaint about Arsene Wenger is that he makes too many excuses. This time, Wenger admitted that the fault lay within his own team's inability to convert territorial dominance into goals. As Arsenal suffered once more at the hands of Manchester United on Saturday, he might have recognised that United won with far more excuses in hand.

"It's a game that we dominated for 80 percent of the time," Wenger suggested. "We have not had many games against Man United like today, but we were...

Player Ratings: De Gea the hero as United edge past Arsenal

Manchester United moved into fourth place with a 2-1 victory over Arsenal.
Manchester United players celebrate with Wayne Rooney after the striker scored a decisive second in the 2-1 win at Arsenal.

Arsenal 1-2 Manchester United. The away side, reverting to the 3-5-2 formation that they had used in the early part of the season, withstood a sustained first-half barrage from Arsene Wenger's men, including several attempts on target from a notably sharp Danny Welbeck, and somehow narrowly prevailed.

GK David De Gea, 8 -- The Spaniard was his team's outstanding player. Operating behind a makeshift and at times uncertain back three, he overcame two pieces of poor distribution early on to excel,...

Three Points -- Arsenal vs. Man United

ESPN FC's Craig Burley wasn't impressed by either Arsenal or Manchester United in Saturday's feature match.

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.
