Giggs returns for United, Flamini replaces Gilberto

Premiership leaders Manchester United arrived at the Emirates Stadium knowing victory over Arsenal would open a nine-point advantage over Chelsea.

United manager Sir Alex Ferguson brought Ryan Giggs back into the side for Park Ji-Sung in the only change from last weekend's 3-1 home victory over Aston Villa.
