Giroud to the rescue as Mourinho, Wenger settle for draw

It was a fight to finish at the Old Trafford as Manchester United and Arsenal settled for a draw in another fixture of one of the fiercest rivalries in football.

Giroud rescues Arsenal as Mourinho, Wenger settle for draw

Jose Mourinho appeals for a penalty

Jose Mourinho’s nightmare at Chelsea Juan Mata became the cornerstone when he notched the ball into the net in the 69th minute to send the stands into the wild as Manchester took the lead barely 20 minutes to the end.

There was a controversial moment when Valencia went down after Monreal pulled him down in the area late in the first half, but the centre referee rebuffs calls for a penalty by the Manchester United fans, as Jose Mourinho expressed shock at the decision.

With just a minute left, Olivier Giroud headed home the equalizer in a spectacular fashion to deny the hosts maximum three points.

It ended: Manchester United 1 – 1 Arsenal.

Wenger has never defeated a Jose Mourinho-tutored side in the English Premier League but the Manchester United coach feels he should personally get the accolades.

Ahead of the game, Mourinho took a jab at Wenger saying he last won the EPL 18 months ago and not 18 years.

The 53-year-old went on to lament that he is not given enough respect in English football as he could not resist another swipe at long-time rival Arsene Wenger.
