Manchester United Vs. Arsenal FC, FA Cup: 8 Minutes Of Injury Time To Be Played, But No Way In For Arsenal

While Johan Djourou was being tended to after that awful shoulder injury, Manchester United snuck in a substitution, bringing in veteran midfielder Paul Scholes for left back Patrice Evra. Presumably this will allow John O'Shea to drop back into a full back position as Scholes moves to the centre of the pitch. There are just a few minutes left of regular time to be played now, and despite the prospect of a long spell of injury time (eight minutes will be played after the Djourou injury break) it doesn't look like there's a way for 10-man Arsenal to get back into this game. It's a real shame for them too, as they deserve far better than being down 2-0 to an ultra-defensive Manchester United lineup.

Arsenal will have been knocked out of three competitions in two weeks as well as losing goalkeeper Wojiech Szczesny to a dislocated finger and now Djourou to what looks like a dislocated shoulder. Talk about a rough fortnight for them.
