FA Cup VIDEO: Manchester United – Arsenal 2:0
London Arsenal in FA Cup quarter-finals with a score of 0:2 and lost to Manchester United.
Fabio, 28, Rooney 49,
Arsenal bowed out of the FA Cup after a 2-0 defeat at Manchester United on Saturday evening, March 12 2011. Arsenal had the majority of possession and nearly twice the number of shots on target as their opponents but were found wanting in the key moments.
They came just before the half-hour when Fabio thumped home after Manuel Almunia palmed a header from Javier Hernandez into his path. Then, four minutes after the restart, Wayne Rooney guided home a header from close range.
The second goal came straight after a wonderful save by Edwin van der Sar from Laurent Koscielny. The two events were a microcosm of this encounter.
