It would have been a huge sigh of relief that would have come out of Jose Mourinho if Manchester United had held on to the one goal that they had courtesy Juan Mata. But it was not to be as Old Trafford witnessed their defense being beaten once again by Olivier Giroud. To their credit, United did look like the better team for much of the match and they were controlling the flow of the game throughout the second half.
But leaving Olivier Giroud free in the box while a cross comes is something that would always lead to a goal and that is exactly what happened to Manchester United. Arsenal would certainly be the happier of the two sides with the scoreline .
