United - Not a Defining Result!

United - Not a Defining Result!

After a shaky start to the season, that`s if you can have a shaky start when you remain unbeaten, United are on a roll.

The victory over Arsenal sets us up nicely for our weekend trip to Chelsea. Following on from the 1-0 victory over Arsenal, Rio Ferdinand spoke about those days when the media doubted out credentials as title challengers and also covered the fine win over Arsene Wenger`s highly respected side.

First up, a few pointers in the directions of those doubters,

"When I look around the changing room I see a fantastic bunch of players. I never doubt them or what they are capable of."

"If we concentrate and are focused on doing the things we are asked, we are difficult to play against."


As our long unbeaten record proves!

Moving on to the Arsenal victory, Rio describes the United philosophy, continuing,

"It is not just about defending as a back four and a goalkeeper."

"We score together and we concede together. If we are defending right from the front we are a hard team to play against."

"The game plan was to get into their faces and put pressure on them."

"We couldn`t afford to give Arsenal time. If you do that they will hurt you."

"This was not a defining result but it is a result you are looking for against one of the teams who are also at the top."


It may not have been a defining result but if can repeat this victory, against Chelsea on Sunday, it`ll be a massive statement of intent!

I would be more than happy with a draw against Chelsea then for Arsenal to go on and draw against them.
