Despite a poor overall performance at Old Trafford, Arsenal did manage to head back to London with a share of the spoils. 

The Gunners played a solid opening 45 minutes, however when Wenger’s men came out for the second half, they failed to match the pace set by United. Mourinho’s men looked certain to win after a fine finish from Juan Mata gave them the lead. However, in the dying seconds, Olivier Giroud thumped home a header to grab Arsenal a point with their only shot on target.

After the game, given the circumstances that unfolded inside the 90 minutes, the draw felt like a loss for Manchester United supporters while, for Arsenal fans, it felt like a victory. However, despite the positivity, one man did come in for particular criticism.

Speaking about Mesut Ozil’s performance, Alan Shearer stated that the German playmaker didn’t even look interested in the game.

“Even this guy, Ozil, who has been brilliant for all the season looked really tried, wasn’t up for it today and it was mistake after mistake.”

However, despite a poor overall showing, there was room for one moment of Ozil magic as the former Real Madrid man walked past Michael Carrick with what will surely be remembered as one of the filthiest megs of the season.
