Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud snatched a point for the Gunners in their trip to Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon, as his 89th-minute towering header resulted in a 1-1 draw.

The North London club struggled in their trip to the Theatre of Dreams and didn’t have a shot on target until the Frenchman’s attempt late on in the game.

United dominated the proceedings right from the start, but were unable to captalise on their domination until Mata found the back of the net around the 70 min mark to make it 1-0.

Wenger made a gamble by replacing Mohamed Elneny with Olivier Giroud in the 73rd minute, with Ramsey dropping to DM. However the change didn’t help the Gunners in their bid to take a grip of the midfield battle.

Giroud handed Arsenal their lifeline with barely a minute of normal time remaining, powering onto the end of a wonderfully floated Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain cross

The result showed great grit and determination on behalf of Wenger’s men but also the lack of creativity they suffer from sometimes in the absence of Santi Cazorla.

The Gunnners will savour a point that so nearly evaded their grasp, and they now prepare for a UEFA Champions League meeting opposite Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday evening.

Here are some of the reactions from Twitter:

It does seem so!

The performance was surely one of the contenders for the worst ever

Agree

You did wake up at the right time

I think maybe Wenger can answer that!

Mourinho affect?

True Analysis!

Mourinho might have been the one who reported this

Hope we can continue the run until New Year

Finally here’s the goal

It was satisfying indeed, not with the play though
