We missed a great chance to remain at the top of the table, but it is never easy playing against Arsenal. They managed to convert 2 of their 4-5 chances and I think that tells its own story. We had a fantastic 10-minute period in the beginning when they were forced to stay back and keep almost all their player behind the ball but unfortunately we did not manage to score. I do believe that if we had scored first the game would have turned in our favour. When I saw Dennis Bergkamp scoring I thought he was quite lucky, as it did not seem to really want to dribble like he did. However when I saw the game on TV later in the evening it seemed that it was intentional in which case it was a fantastic goal! As far as the second goal is concerned I should have covered Campbell better. I have lost very few personal challenge of this sort since I came to United but in this one I should have done something better.

Now we go away at Anfield to face Liverpool. There is really no need for me to say that it a difficult game. However it is the last difficult game for the Premiership. Don't forget we have to face Arsenal in the FA!
