Here are five interesting stats to digest...
1) Arsenal had twice as many shots as United, 10 to five, with both teams having two on target each.
2) Phil Jones completed 100 per cent of his passes in the first half, a figure which had slipped to 90 per cent by the end of the game, which was still the highest of any United player.
3) In five minutes on the pitch, Marouane Fellaini won as many aerial duels (2) as Wayne Rooney did the entire game.
4) Shinji Kagawa made more interceptions (4) than any United player, equalled by Thomas Vermaelen, Kieran Gibbs and Mikel Arteta.
5) Nemanja Vidic made 10 clearances in 45 minutes, more than defensive partner Jonny Evans made 90 minutes (9).
