Top 5 Manchester United vs Arsenal Premier League matches at Old Trafford

4. Manchester United 0-0 Arsenal – September 21, 2003

While you would be forgiven for questioning a goalless encounter in our top five, this match was so fiercely contested it later became known as the Battle of Old Trafford.

Late in the second-half, Vieira was controversially sent off after kicking out at Van Nistelrooy.

Then, in the 90th minute, the home side were awarded a penalty after Martin Keown dragged down Diego Forlan.

Van Nistelrooy, the recipient of several choice words from the Arsenal players following Vieira’s sending off, smashed the penalty against the bar.

As the final whistle blew, Keown, Parlour, Lauren et al surrounded the disconsolate Van Nistelrooy, who quickly made his way off the pitch.
