Rooney was superb. The young guys and new signings continue to impress. And DeGea's save of Van Persie's PK was terrific. Have to feel bad for Arsenal. Dealing with this match with key players injured or suspended. It's too bad the transfers of Fabregas and that money grubber Nasri paralyzed the club most of the summer. I'm assuming Arsene was still looking for players despite the fiasco. They desperately need help at the back and the door will slam shut in 3 days. Clearly this result doesn't indicate what Arsenal's season will be like; but it has to be a big blow to confidence. Two weeks to recover with the international break.
