A game that Sky Sports hyped to the moon not living up to expectations? That NEVER happens.
Yes, Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger were REUNITED at Old Trafford in a pretty important game this morning. The handshake was about as frosty as you'd expect.

About half an hour in we had Mourinho leaping around the place after being denied what looked to be a clear penalty.

But that was the only exciting thing to happen in the first half. Literally.
Twitter was not too impressed with the penalty incident, or Matteo Darmian's sideburns.
Darmian is actual filth. Should be sent off for having that kind of facial hair alone.

Penalty or not. If you think that is rugby tackle(ish), then you've probably never watched rugby. #MUNARS

Rooney definitely gonna score and neck a can of Bav to celebrate #MUNARS

Juan Mata finally gave us something to talk about when he put United ahead with 20 minutes to go, although he was booked for celebrating

How dare Juan Mata go and celebrate with the fans. That's totally out of order. A yellow card is not punishment enough - send him off.

Love to see a midfielder arriving late like Mata did there. Lampard-esque.

Stat in today's Times: since Arsenal last won in the league at Old Trafford, Lionel Messi has scored 442 goals for Barcelona.

Just as that looked to be the winner, Olivier Giroud headed in an equalizer after being given the space of Old Trafford. It was the definition of a smash and grab

That was a terrible performance by @Arsenal - one shot in 90 mins but a decent point nonetheless. United needed win more than us.

Was impressed with United. Herrera and Mata particularly good. Midfield looking better and better.

Not a good performance, but a decent result. Once again unable to win at Old Trafford, and once again unable to beat Mourinho. 😕

The irony was I thought it was United's best display of the season far - more complete display than Leicester.

Wenger on Sky Italia says it was a "positive result" and a "scrappy game".
