Match Commentary

90' Remember you can follow all the rest of today's action with Matchday Live. See you next time.
90' The win puts United top of the table for now as they go two points ahead of Chelsea. But the Blues have a chance to regain their top spot when they take on Swansea this afternoon. Arsenal meanwhile, now lie nine points behind United.
90' A poor performance from Arsenal really. Lucky not to be two down at half time, they failed to show enough bite to threaten a comeback. Credit to them, they had their best spell just after the break but the second goal and the sending off meant things were all over with 25 minutes to go. A solid and confident performance from the home side. Ferguson will be very pleased.
