Arsene Wenger has presumably taken his players to task for that early spell of sloppy play, because Arsenal keeping hold of the football a little better and are starting to build possession nicely. Unsurprisingly, Manchester United's team are defending resolutely, but Kieran Gibbs, Samir Nasri and most recently Bacary Sagna have managed to swing in crosses from dangerous positions. Even with their seven defenders (and the relatively poor deliveries so far), United aren't going to be happy that the ball keeps getting pinged into the box.
It's also painfully evident that Fabio da Silva isn't a midfielder - the fullback being pressed into service as United's wide left player and apparently totally ignorant of the rules of offside. Failing to hold his run while totally clear of the defence, the Brazilian singlehandedly ruined what was probably the home side's most promising attack. Not very clever play there.
Anyway, it's been a reasonably entertaining game so far, but there've been no great chances yet.
