Manchester City Upstaged by a Dominant United

I almost feel sorry for Manchester City. They go away to Spurs on Sunday and beat them 5-1, a very good result.

Then, later in the day, Manchester United upstage everyone and demolish Arsenal 8-2 to go top of the Premiership table. And, naturally enough, it's United who are first on the football highlights on Match of the Day 2.

And whilst I'm sure the first thing non-United supporters will point to is that Arsenal put out a weakened side, the fact remains that you can only play what's in front of you. United could have actually scored a dozen times, and that scoreline in no way exaggerates just how superior their play was to an Arsenal side that looked defeated as soon as the first 5 minutes had passed.

Nice to see Rooney score his hat-trick, he played well for the team and never stopped running, even close to the end of the match.

On a final note it looks like Owen Hargreaves will be joining Manchester City later today before the transfer deadline. I hope he does well, he had a lot of injuries when he was on United's books and we never really got to see the very best of his talent.
