First off Manchester City annihilated Tottenham Hotspurs on their own ground with an emphatic 5-1 victory and then Manchester United put the icing on the cake with a glorious 8-2 victory over Arsenal on their home territory.
The by line on the BBC website says it all:
“Manchester United inflicted total humiliation on Arsenal and their embattled manager Arsène Wenger with a brutal victory at Old Trafford.”
Wayne Rooney was United's inspiration with the sixth hat-trick of his Old Trafford career, but Ashley Young also made his mark with two stunning goals. Danny Welbeck, Nani and Park Ji-sung were the other scorers.
The goal margin sent United to the top of the league ahead of their rivals City but no matter, both teams and their fans had plenty to celebrate in Manchester last night.
