Manchester United 1-0 Arsenal
Ji-Sung Park's first half header was enough to give Manchester United victory against Arsenal to put them top of the Premier League.
The South Korean scored late in the half after a disappointing opening 45 minutes at Old Trafford. The second half livened up and Wayne Rooney missed the chance to make it a comfortable final 18 minutes when he missed from the penalty spot.
However United held on for the three points which takes Sir Alex Ferguson's unbeaten Red Devils above the Gunners and into top spot on 34 points.
Following a disappointing opening spell to the game Nani had the first real effort of any note on 22 minutes when he flashed a volley wide of the far post after Sebastien Squillaci failed to head a Darren Fletcher cross out of his own area.
Both sides continued to struggle in the final third until United opened the scoring out of the blue on 41 minutes.
Nani's cross from the right deflected off Gael Clichy and Park did well to divert his header in off the post beyond the diving Gunners keeper Wojciech Szczesny.
Anderson had the first effort of the second half following a clever pass from Rooney, but Szczesny did well to block his effort on 54 minutes.
Two minutes later Samir Nasri's low strike forced United keeper Edwin van der Sar to get down and parry the effort before Nemanja Vidic slid in to block Marouane Chamakh's effort from the rebound.
Rooney then spurned a great chance to seal the points on 72 minutes when he blasted his penalty kick over the crossbar following a handball in the area by Clichy.
The England international almost made amends on 86 minutes with an attempted lob which Szczesny managed to parry away from the goal.
However park's strike proved to be enough as United comfortably held on for the victory.
