Not sure what I enjoyed more - the first half blitz and wave after wave of attacking football or the 2nd half where we put on our game management hats and competely controlled the game and result. I really am torn between the two halfs because 1st I have seen before albeit not against a top 4 team but the second half is what we have been crying out for a long time.

Great to see the players respond for the Fans, Club and Manager.

Firstly, it was good to see our team playing with incisiveness as opposed to the all too familiar tippy tappy football and limited creation of chances.

More important than the win for me was seeing Wenger showing tactical initiative for once. Kicking off with more or less our strongest team, and making substitutions to reflect the status of the game. 3-0 job was done. Man U were starting to retain possession in the mid 2nd half and were trying to pile on the pressure. Wenger responded with bringing on Gibbs, Ox and Giroud in order to keep our clean sheet. Gibbs to slot into a wing-back player if you like, offering greater defensive power. Giroud to attempt to hold the ball up top or within Utd's half and Ox to offer fresh legs to run at their defense. Also meant that Ozil, Sanchez and Walcott were not ran into the ground.

Very pleasing to see them beautiful triangle link up plays between speicifcally Ozil, Sanchez, Walcott and Santi. We play consistently like we did in this game and with Wengers apparent new-found tactical initiative - the league is there for a serious challenge.

He also moved Ramsey central in order to help shore up the middle.

Tactics were on point.
