The Record Finally Stopped

Arsenal's unbeatable record finally come to an end, after they were beaten from Manchester United last night from Ruud Van Nistelrooy's Penalty and Wayne Rooney's goal. This two goals were two answers from Manchester United after they suffered from a series of draws in the last two games they played. The most valuable player in the game last night was definetly Wayne Rooney and Rio Ferdinand. Rooney created the change as Sol Campbell hit his kick on the penalty area which gives Manchester United a change to get a penalty Kick, while Ferdinand gave a solid defence with Silvestre and Neville at the back, making Arsenal's attacker couldn't get the ball inside Manchester United's goal.

Nistelrooy's goal was his answer from his failure in the last two penalty shootout, which can be canceled by Arsenal's goalkeeper, Jens Lehmann from Germany. No wonder he was so happy after he scored the goal. You can see his celebration in the local news paper or in Soccernet's website. In the other hand, Rooney's goal was his best present for his 19th birthday at that day.

Meanwhile Arsene Wenger launched a bitter attack on Wayne Rooney, referee Mike Riley and Manchester United's rough-house tactics after Arsenal had surrendered their 49-game unbeaten record at Old Trafford. You can view the complete news in "Wenger left fuming after United loss".

Manchester United has shorter the gap between them and Arsenal with 8 points, but it's not an ending yet. It is the beginning of the Manchester United Revival, after a bad start of the season's league. Will they close another gap or there will be another gap between both team? We will see it in next week games.
