Stunning Arsenal Put United to the Sword

An electrifying Arsenal performance humbled Manchester United 3-0 at The Emirates. This result lifts the London club above their fierce rivals to second spot in the Premier League.

Alexis Sanchez was United's chief tormentor as the Old Trafford club were helpless to cope with his pace and flair.

The Chilean was simply irresistable, scoring two sublime goals within the first twenty minutes of the first-half. The first was a deft backheel from a low Bellerin cross, and his second a rasping eighteen yard shot that gave a diving David De Gea no chance. 

A well-steered Mesut Ozil strike near the penalty spot sandwiched both of Sanchez's goals.

Disbelieving Gunners fans could barely contain their glee at the scoreline, while their team threatened to open the floodgates against a disjointed and surprisingly tame United side. Arsenal posed United all the questions, but for once the Old Trafford club simply had no answer.

Gunners fans will be delighted by their team's dominance and swagger, which has seldom been witnessed against league rivals since the halcyon days of Vieira and Henry.

With a genuine match-winner in Sanchez and no team dominating the Premier League at present, this victory may inject belief into this Arsenal squad that they can finally mount a serious challenge for the title this season.

great performance from Arsenal. But the news tomorrow will all be focused on Brendan Rodgers departure.
