Manchester United 8-2 Arsenal, 2011
Manchester United and Arsenal have been two of the biggest sides in the Premier League era with the two teams having been involved in many title races. The fixture was also a tactical square-off between two veteran managers Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger.
United gave the Gunners a really hard thumping as they completely outplayed an Arsenal side struck by injury and suspensions. But no excuse would be enough the describe the manner in which United dominated Arsenal, as the home side beat the Gunners 8-2. This was Arsenal’s worst defeat since 1896 and left Wenger and his Arsenal side with too much to swallow.
Wayne Rooney lead the charges as he scored his 6th hattrick of his United career. And with goals from Danny Welbeck, Nani, Park Ji- Sung and two stunners from Ashley Young made sure that United gave the Gunners an evening to forget. While this would go down as one of the most dominant Manchester United performances over a fellow “big four” side and one of the most memorable Premier League fixtures.
