Talking about luck, Arsenal certainly is been unlucky with injuries to Gallas, Clichy, Roscisky and Van Persie.Image Man U without Ferdinand, they would be leaking goals like a sieve. Lucky Man U, if Arshavin was not cuptied, he would have caused them a few problems? Ugo.

Most teams who win the first leg of the CL semi-finals do go on to the final (about 80%), but of the 4 teams which didn’t, one was Manchester United – they beat AC Milan 3-2 at home but lost 0-3 at the San Siro in the second leg in 2007.Arsenal have a fighting chance and they know it. United should have killed them off but they didn’t, and Arsenal may well punish them for their profligacy and wastefulness in front of goal.That said, the referees were quite poor as well, with two dubious offside calls and a pronounced inability to acknowledge blatant fouls. Hopefully they’ll be better in the second leg.

Yes, they have a clear advantage but Arsenal have kept it really tight in Europe this season and a 1-0 or 2-0 win at the Emirates is not beyond them.

FC “Next Season” did well to concede just one at OT but they have no chance of overhauling the deficit.

Oh Manchester, Manchester UNITED!”With that said, Arsenal doesn’t stand a chance @ the Emirates.

Think first goal at the emirates will be crucial. Whoever gets it will probably go on and win the tie. These ties are all about goals. Utd got one but could’nt build on the momentum. Utd also may be without Ferdinand and this could possibly swing the pendulum in Arsenal’s favour.Intriguing game ahead on Tuesday. Up for grabs as they say!

If Van Persie is fit and the team is more balanced with Fabregas playing where he plays best this tie is far from over.

Fabregas didnt get overwhelmed in midfield he saw sooooooo much of the ball, not many teams go to Old Trafford and have that much possession he just didnt have anything in attack to help him and Evra and Rooney did a good job on Walcott keeping him quiet, Van Persie is the key, if he is fit, in the second leg

Man u just too strong at the moment. arsenal might give them a fright but they just don’t have enough goal in them.
