Manchester United completely dominated Arsenal in their 1-0 first leg tie, but could United regret only taking a slender one goal advantage to the Emirates next week?
Ferguson went into the first leg of this epic Champions League semi final stating that he didn’t want to concede an away goal, his team achieved that. However considering United’s dominance he will be disappointed to only carry the single goal advantage into round two.
It was John O’Shea in the first-half who managed to get past the splendid Manuel Almunia. The Spanish goalkeeper was responsible for a number of first class stops in the first half, whilst his counterpart Van der Sar was rarely troubled. Almunia and youngster Kieran Gibbs apart, Arsenal looked a shadow of the side that waltzed past Villareal in the quarter finals of this competition.
Wenger put on a brave face after the game and reiterated his belief that the North London team can progress to the final once more.
We still believe we can do it at home and I still believe we can do it next week.
It is down to us to make sure they regret they didn’t.
It will be our biggest win over United if we do it because there is a final at stake.
And when we play at home and know that there is a final at stake we will be up for it.
Is Arsene Wenger playing mind games?
Will Fergie regret those missed opportunities from the first leg?
