Holders Manchester United dominated Arsenal in their Champions League semi-final first leg and they will be disappointed to manage just a 1-0 lead.
Arsenal will feel they got out of jail and with a decent record against United at the Emirates, the tie is certainly wide open. A more attacking lineup from Arsene Wenger at home will surely put more pressure on United’s defence.
Alex Ferguson can at least console himself with the fact that United did not concede an away goal but an injury to Rio Ferdinand could cause problems in the second leg.
It’s all teed up nicely and I would not like to be a bookmaker deciding odds on who goes through.
But United almost always score don’t they If they find the net in London it will probably be all over.
