Aaron Ramsey’s second-half goal – his first since January 2010 – saw Manchester United’s lead remain at just three points from Chelsea, whom they face next week at Old Trafford.
Arsenal may have seen their own title ambitions extinguished following a run of draws, but at least gave their frustrated fans renewed hope next season might just be different.
Arsenal played much better than United with the leaders leaving it very late to mount any type of counter attack. Berbatov came on late as Manchester United tried to pinch a last minute goal. It could have happened but it didn’t.
A disappointed Sir Alex said after the game “In fairness, I thought it was going to be a draw but they got a goal from their only shot on target so it was disappointing.”
