Had to be given. Bad darts to celebrate like that though.

Tbf I doubt Smith Rowe had a clue De Gea was down. He just hit the shot. Unusual situation for sure

De Gea was pathetic there with his Barthezesque playacting to try to stop play. There is no way that he was too badly injured to get up and scramble across to that shot,

Fred is the biggest thief in the league by stealing a living. He’s a stunningly awful player.

Pathetic from de gea to curl up and look away from the ball. Could easily have saved it. Cowardly.

Hard to have sympathy with man United when De Gea isn’t really injured. Suspicion he went down presuming it was an Arsenal foot that tripped him.

Arsenal at least being consistent with their unsportsmanlike play and sticking the ball in the net with the keeper injured on the floor.
Tbf, I don’t think they’d seen that de gea was injured

That’s for the referee to blow the whistle. The right decision imo.
It's a far cry from Di Canio at Goodison Park.

Yep, looked like the VAR told him he couldn't.

De Gea wasn’t injured though was he? Straight back up.

Paul Gerrard was very clearly hurt that day. Not sure what Arsenal have done wrong.

And still the commentators don’t point out de gea’s shameful pretence. Get up and save the shot!

Take it as De Gea was so injured he's been replaced then, serves them right for staying down expecting to get the game stopped. Well done ref. Poor reaction from Man Utd, odd that they all surround the ref, assume they all got booked for that :chin: :crylol: :crylol:

Would have been interesting to see if the same decision would have been made, against one of the league's bottom sides..

I’m convinced premier league players are, in general, trained to stay down when they feel any pain.

Nothing wrong with that goal at all. De gea shouldn't have gone down like a sack of ****.

Oh there's no doubt De Gea was being a cock by feigning injury worse than it was, I'm just making the point that Arsenal didn't know that.

This on the back of them being unsporting not throwing back the ball ahead of their goal against I think Watford the other week.

Cannot stand Arsenal. A spectacularly arrogant club.
