POSTED BY , UPDATED ON August 29th, 2011

Manchester United slammed Arsenal by scoring eight goals past the shell-shocked Gunner Defense to secure an outstanding 8-2 victory at Old Trafford.

It was Arsenal’s worst ever defeat playing against United and the first time they have conceded eight in a competitive league game since 1896.

The result leaves Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger staring at the biggest crisis of his 15 years long carrier at the helm of Arsenal. Which is a very well known and famous club of the Barclays Premier League because of its good fluid play and sensible passing.

For Arsene Wenger, there are far more searching and important questions that have risen because of the departures of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri, and the football pundits and critics fell he might not be able to answer them.

The match began at a very frantic pace both the teams played good attacking football.

It was Manchester United who opened the scoring through Danny Welbeck, a young player from the United youth academy who was on loan last season at Sunderland under Club Manager Steve Bruce and the young lad did a terrific job on loan too.

Welbeck paid back the faith put in him by United Manager Sir Alex Ferguson after he scored his 2nd goal in 3 games after he headed home Anderson’s superb chip pass.

The United’s Star summer signing Ashley young scored a sublime curl shot from outside the box. Later on United added a third from a free kick taken by Wayne Rooney a beautiful curling free kick in the top corner by the united’s Talisman.

Arsenal brought the deficit down by 1 when Theo Walcott scored. But Arsenal could have had further reduced the deficit but New Arsenal Captain Robin Van Persie’s penalty kick was stopped by United’s young goal keeper David De Gea.

After the half time Rooney struck twice for United from another free kick and a penalty. United’s second half substitue Ji Sung Park then added a seveth goal and Robin Van Persie scored for Arsenal bringing the scoreline to 7-2.

Ashley Young second superb curler was the final nail in the coffin for Arsenal on a day they would sure want to forget.
