  1. 90+5

    No time for a restart, and United go top of the table with a 2-1 victory over an Arsenal side who couldn't muster a shot on target until stoppage time. Not a classic, but job done for the Red Devils who now have 24 points from 10 games. Arsenal nine points back in sixth.

  2. 90+5

    GOAL - CAZORLA! Consolation for Arsenal with the last kick of the game, and it's a stunning goal from Cazorla, bending the ball inside the far post from the edge of the area.

  3. 90+3

    Arsenal seeing a lot of the ball in added time, but it's all futile now.

  4. 90+2

    Great chance for Arsenal to set up a grandstand finish in stoppage-time, and finally a save for De Gea to make as he denies Giroud from close-range.

  5. 90+1

    Four minutes of stoppage time at Old Trafford. Still, I suppose, time for Arsenal to do something miraculous...

  6. 90

    Van Persie gets an arm in the face contesting a high ball with Arteta. The Arsenal man picks up a booking. Seven players cautioned in this game to go with the red card for Wilshere.

  7. 90

    Into the final minute at Old Trafford. Not one of the classic encounters between these two, but United have been good enough against a subdued and disappointing Arsenal side.

  8. 89

    Van Persie's corner is headed clear and Cazorla has the chance to launch a counter-attack for Arsenal. A chance he does not take.

  9. 88

    Mertesacker alert to the danger as United break through Anderson, and gets the ball behind for a corner.

  10. 87

    Giroud tries his luck from 30 yards but his shot is blocked.

  11. 86

    Good work again from Mannone to gather the ball after Anderson ghosts past Arteta in midfield and looks to slide the ball through for the run of Nani.

  12. 85

    Mannone off his line smartly to prevent Van Persie latching on to a throughball.

  13. 84

    Rooney's corner comes to nothing.

  14. 84

    A rather more impressive first contribution from Nani, firing over a cross from the right that Mertesacker does well to head behind with Van Persie lurking.

  15. 83

    Arshavin's first contribution is to chop down a charging Rafael and add to the growing collection of cards in this match.

  16. 82

    Substitutions from both sides as Nani replaces Valencia and Arshavin replaces Podolski.

  17. 81

    Rooney rudely halts an attempted Arsenal break on halfway with a trip on Arteta and becomes the latest player to receive a caution.

  18. 80

    United have the ball in the net again, and it's beautifully worked. But the linesman cares not for craft and raises the flag to deny Anderson, who was a fraction ahead of the ball when Van Persie squared for him to slot home after the Dutchman had been superbly played in by Evans.

  19. 78

    Promising position comes to nothing for United as Valencia cuts inside from the right and finds himself in a blind alley.

  20. 77

    Van Persie lashes home after being found by Rooney's lofted pass, but he's rightly flagged offside.
