Yay! United won 2-1 over Arsenal at Emirates (Giroud 95′; Gibbs OG 56′, Rooney 85′) yesterday. It’s United’s first away win under Van Gaal, and of course it’s another important win for United in the PL. De Dea won Man of The Match. Well deserved, he was so brilliant.
Van Gaal: “It was the right moment to win this game, against a top team. In the first 25 minutes, we gave the ball away too easily but, after that, you could see us coming back into it. When we keep the ball and play with confidence, we create many chances. We created at least three big ones”
Rooney: “It was a very important victory. We weathered the storm at times, especially in the first half, and then we knew we could hit them on the counter attack, we knew they were vulnerable on the break and we did that. We rode our luck at times, our goalkeeper was fantastic for us today but we hit them with two good goals. It was quite a difficult game, they had a lot of possession but we hit them on the break and that was our game plan.”
And these are some photos from the match. Loving that Rooney’s passionate celebration.
And the most hilarious thing is Rooney’s tweet. Love how he trolls Piers Morgan, hahahahaha. Peace, Arsenal fans! 🙂
