Arsenal 1 United 1
Unsurprisingly given the high pace throughout the game, both sets of players began to tire as the match entered its final 20 minutes and Arsenal tried to arrest that leggy play by introducing Jack Wilshere, Gervinho and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, while Anderson came on for Rafael, with Jones moving to right-back.
The pace naturally dropped towards the end but the match remained tantalisingly open as both sides continued to take it in turns to slog it out on the attack, like weary boxers in the final rounds of a bout. Late on, De Gea made a good save from Santi Cazorla, while substitute Ryan Giggs agonisingly had a shot deflected wide. In the end, it was a share of the points and, although United created more opportunities to win it, with the title already won there can be few complaints at the outcome.
