Sir Alex Ferguson finds 8-2 result over Arsenal “unusual”

Sir Alex Ferguson found the result against Arsenal to be unusualManchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has claimed that Sunday’s 8-2 demolition of North London side Arsenal was unusual as no one expected it.

United ran riot against Arsenal on the Sunday afternoon with Wayne Rooney scoring a hat trick and Ashley Young grabbing a brace to fire United on top of the Premiership table on goal difference ahead of neighbours Manchester City.

Talking to MUTV after the game, Ferguson said:

“It’s unusual because you don’t expect it, we’ve scored six against them twice in the past, so maybe when we hit form like that somebody suffers. Today it was Arsenal who unfortunately suffered.”

“We’ve had a couple of big results against them in the past, but when you see Arsenal’s team like that, we do expect to score goals. I felt all their quality was in the forward positions and they were a threat at times. They could have scored more than two goals.”

“It was a funny game, a strange result but we can only do our jobs and I think the players kept it professional that way and did their best. We’re showing great energy at the moment and great enjoyment in our game, and that’s important.”
