Yesterday massive victory against Arsenal saw Manchester United reducing the points different with Chelsea to one point. Chelsea have one game in hand, but they are playing Arsenal next week and If Arsene Wenger‘ side can bounce back, we will be top of the table.
Sir Alex Ferguson got the upper hand over Wenger for the second time in the premier league this season, First time was at Old Trafford earlier this season when United broke Arsenal unbeaten run, thanks to his tactics and Rooney-Nani super show which saw United outclassing Arsenal in their own grand.
I won’t talk much about Wayne Rooney, he is just enjoying his game this season, and Ronaldo departure to Real Madrid got the best out of him. Nani, who most of us lost faith on him and wished he leaves the club, is proving he got everything to be one of the best winger in the world. I am not saying this because of yesterday game or his last three performances… It is because I am sure this good display won’t stop, why? Just look how Sir Alex could get the best out of him…Nani appeared in the starting lineup at the start of the seasons, he couldn’t show what he got because a reason or another, then he was thrown out of the squad, however Fergie had faith on the player, after that he was included in Angel di Maria bid…then Fergie said Nani was just injured and then a surprise start for Nani against Burnley and the rest as you all saw! (Will the same scenario work with Anderson?!)
I also would give credit to Park Ji Sung who proved me wrong again and gave a reason why his contract been renewed by the club. I thought Park Ji Sung lost much of his fitness and ability after picking some injuries during last seasons. But the energy he showed yesterday and the way he scored the third goal talked about the Korean talent and he isn’t here for commercial reasons.
Usually, Manchester United start their bouncing back to win the title race during the Christmas and New Year. This time it was delayed, especially after home defeat to Aston Villa. But with such performance after yesterday game plus Man City injury time victory, the team won’t stop his run to win the Premier League and keep the trophy at Old Trafford for the fourth consecutive year.
