Video : Classic Game : Manchester United v Arsenal 2011

There can be no contending which game stands out as Manchester United’s most best victory over this weekend’s visitors, Arsenal.

There have been big scoreless – 6-1 in February 2001 – and more intense games – the 2-0 in October 2004 – but for sheer glee and delight, the 8-2 victory over Arsene Wenger’s men in August 2011 stands alone.

Ashley Young had just arrived from Aston Villa and demonstrated his worth with two outstanding goals but it was Wayne Rooney who was the star man of the day, with a hat-trick in this rout.
