The game has kicked off at a packed Old Trafford, with Manchester United wearing their home reds while Arsenal take the field in their rather attractive yellow and maroon away kits. The visitors have us underway, but after playing the ball back to their defence immediately gave up possession when Laurent Koscielny was forced to boot the ball away after being put under severe pressure by Javier Hernandez. United have flown out of the blocks in the first few minutes, Arsenal giving the ball away far too easily - that's twice in seconds that Arsene Wenger's side has conceded possession in their half after Kieran Gibbs had his pocket picked by Hernandez.
Strangely, it's Andrei Arshavin and Arsenal who've registered the first shot of the match, assuming you don't count Hernandez's shot after being flagged for offside. The little Russian was set free down the right and wiggled his way in to the penalty box despite attention from Nemanja Vidic, and forced Edwin van der Sar into a relatively easy save from a tight angle. It wasn't the most dangerous effort, but it's already better than their attacking performance against Barcelona at the Camp Nou.
