Walcott goes through, looking a shade offside, and bangs the ball home off De Gea at the near post. Arsenal lead inside two minutes!
Rooney tries to get on the end of a through ball, but again Arsenal stand firm. Sagna gives the ball away and Van Persie is in the area. Sagna fouls him. PENALTY TO UNITED, says the referee. Van Persie belts it to the left of Szczesny. A great penalty and a much muted celebration from the returning striker.
No effort for both teams in second half. Result ended at 1 – 1 draw.
