In his feature for the London Evening Standard, Paul Scholes talks about how Manchester United’s poor performance against the Gunners jump-started their recent run of form.
Manchester United are currently enjoying a run of form almost as exciting as Arsenal’s and ex-player Scholes believes the reason for their recent success can be pin-pointed to one defining moment.
Their match against Arsenal in the FA Cup in which we knocked them out, winning 2-1 with the second goal coming – somewhat controversially – from ex-United striker, Danny Welbeck.
The ex-Manchester United midfielder was eager to hail the moment Angel Di Maria received a red card during the final 15-minutes of the tie for turning the team’s season around. He implies it was this performance against the North London team which sparked the ‘key changes‘ Man United needed to make in order to start playing well and winning matches.
United currently sit second in the form table and third in the league table, with Arsenal on top in terms of form and second in the league.
It looks in addition to breaking Manchester City, we may have fixed Manchester United.
Don’t think that was supposed to happen.
