Manchester United continued with the same side that beat Spurs on Monday night.

Danny Welbeck opened the scoring after 22 minutes with a header from inside the area. Anderson lifted the ball over Arsenal’s static defence and Welbeck had too much power for the back-line and headed over Szczesny in the Arsenal goal.

United made it two when Young’s magnificent strike found the top corner.

Rooney scored minutes before half-time with a perfect free-kick before Theo Walcott cut the advantage to 3-1 in first-half stoppage time.

When Djourou pulled Rooney down on the edge of the area, he was merely creating the opportunity for the striker to add to his tally and make it 4-1 on the day. Nani added a fifth after 67 minutes and Park made it six moments later.

Rooney added number seven with a fine free-kick before Young made it 8-2 with a wonderful drive in stoppage time.
