Arsenal had no answer to United’s lively midfield, were ineffective upfront and carved out just a couple of half-chances before Wright had the last word. Full-back Kevin Gage almost broke the deadlock in the 25th minute with a curling 20-yard shot fingertipped over the bar by Seaman. Whitehouse finally got the better of Arsenal three minutes into the second half after Adrian Littlejohn twisted round Nigel Winterburn. His low cross was headed on by Deane and the little winger stormed in to crack the ball into the roof of the net. The match ended 1-1.
