Wenger Loses Cool as Arsenal Beaten 2-1

Arsene Wenger received a red card in the final seconds of Arsenal's 2-1 loss to Manchester United on Saturday night.

He was sent to the stands by referee Mike Dean after kicking a water bottle down the touchline in frustration after Robin van Persie`s equaliser was ruled offside.

Andrey Arshavin scored the first of the goals. Wayne Rooney converted a penalty after being brought down by Manuel Almunia. Abou Diaby then headed an own goal that ultimately proved to be the matchwinner.

I felt a bit sorry for Wenger as he headed for the seats behind the dugout, only to find there were not any, and was eventually ushered towards the tunnel as his side suffered a defeat which was very hard to take.

Rooney has now scored five goals in five games this season, and is in excellent form.
