Manchester United Vs. Arsenal FC, FA Cup: Substitute Ryan Giggs Wastes Chance To Kill Game

Striker Marouane Chamakh is now on the field for Arsenal, replacing the woefully ineffective Denilson and presumably marking a change of tactics from the visitors. They now have much more of an aerial threat to hit with their crosses, and with two forwards may well give the centre back pairing of Nemanja Vidic and Chris Smalling more of a problem. However, Arsenal are still looking a little shell-shocked after going down 2-0 to Manchester United, and they don't really look like scoring anymore. The visitors are in desperate need for some drive from the midfield, and with Samir Nasri now dropping to the centre, he'll be asked to provide it.

United have now made their second substitution, with Rafael da Silva (unsurprisingly) off for the twenty-year veteran Ryan Giggs. His first touch launches a United attack, ultimately winning a corner after Wayne Rooney crossed - and somehow United failed to score after first Javier Hernandez was free with a header and then Giggs received the ball five yards out in front of an open goal. That should have been game over with twenty five minutes left.
