Brilliant !

MANCHESTER (Reuters) - Manchester United beat Arsenal 2-0 to end the champions' record run of 49 unbeaten Premier League matches and re-ignite their own title challenge.

A controversial Ruud van Nistelrooy penalty and a late Wayne Rooney goal secured a priceless victory for United who became the first team since Leeds United on May 4, 2003 to beat the Gunners in the league.

The two Premier League heavyweights had slugged it out toe to toe in pouring rain in front of a passionate crowd of almost 68,000 without creating any clear chances until Rooney tripped over the trailing leg of his England team mate Sol Campbell with 17 minutes remaining.

Van Nistelrooy, who hit the bar with a penalty in the goalless draw in last season's corresponding fixture, found the target in the 73rd minute by sending goalkeeper Jens Lehmann the wrong way with a low shot to his left.

Rooney completed the win -- and capped a memorable 19th birthday -- with a breakaway goal three minutes into injury time created by substitutes Louis Saha and Alan Smith. The England forward scored with ease from close-range to send Old Trafford into ecstasy.

I watched this match today at a local English bar. It was standing room only and a good mix of Arsenal, Man Utd with several Liverpool, Everton, etc. fans.
