What really happened when Man United and Arsenal aces clashed?

Anyone else still trying to work out how Arsenal didn’t make all their possession and dominance pay during yesterday’s clash with Manchester United? A real smash-and-grab from Louis van Gaal’s side at the Emirates but they won’t mind.

The main talking point that came from the 90 minutes in the Premier League’s late kick-off surrounded Arsenal’s feisty midfielder Jack Wilshere and Manchester United’s afro-sporting Marouane Fellaini.

After what seemed like a rather innocuous coming together of the pair on the edge of United’s penalty area, Arsenal’s Englishman took offence to the referee blowing for a foul and then the Three Lions midfielder decided he’d had enough of United’s towering former Toffee.

I think we all agree that Arsenal were lucky not to see their man sent off – if Jack was a foot taller, he most probably would’ve been heading for an early bath.

Naturally, like all talking points in football, the scenario has been given the ‘Wealdstone Raider’ treatment.
