Can you name Manchester United’s XI from their 8-2 win over Arsenal in 2011?


On Sunday, August 28 2011, Manchester United hosted Arsenal at Old Trafford – and it turned into one of the most embarrassing days in the Gunners’ history as they lost 8-2. How well do you remember it?

As the Arsenal glory years gave way to the late-Wenger-era stasis, Arsenal traveled up to Manchester without a number of first-team players. United took full advantage.

Despite not fielding their strongest-ever side – it was a team that went on to lose 6-1 to Manchester City a couple of months later, for crying out loud – Sir Alex Ferguson’s men put in a barnstorming display, ripping Arsenal apart and scoring some wonderful goals.

What we want you to do is name the starting XI Ferguson put out.
