Subject: Keane double destroys Gunners Two goals from Roy Keane gave Manchester United a vital victory over their title rivals Arsenal, ending the Gunners' long unbeaten record at Highbury. Keane hit the winner two minutes from time to send his manager Alex Ferguson into a triumphant touchline jig and take United back to the top of the table. The Irish midfielder had earlier cancelled out a Frederick Ljungberg opener that had given Arsenal a 1-0 lead at the break. English football's big two produced a full-blooded contest, packed with incident and attractive football, that lived up to its pre-match billing as a potential title-decider. Both sides were desperate for victory in a fixture that has been the highlight of the domestic season in recent years. Such were the pressure levels that the match boiled over six minutes from the end, as Keane and Patrick Vieira clashed, prompting a face-off between the two sides which the referee did well to defuse. End-to-end A highly entertaining first half was full of chances for both sides. But it was last season's runners-up Arsenal who took the lead against the reigning champions, after Ljungberg finished off a flowing 41st minute move instigated by United's main tormentor Nwankwo Kanu. The Nigerian linked with Dennis Bergkamp, whose pass to Ljungberg left United struggling and the Swede finished in style. It was only his second goal for the Gunners - the other came in the same fixture last season, which Arsenal won 3-0. Keane, though, kept alive United's unbeaten Premiership record - which stretches back to December - with an impressive second-half strike. The Irish midfielder combined with Cole to spring Arsenal's well-drilled off-side trap and then stroked the ball past the advancing Alex Manninger. The equaliser set up an almighty scramble in the closing stages in which either side could have won it. But with 88 minutes on the clock, Keane kept his nerve to collect Ryan Giggs' deflected shot and beat Manninger to send Highbury's visiting fans home happy at last. It was the first time for 20 months that Arsenal had lost at home. Deputies on top The early plaudits in an entertaining game were earned by the two second-string goalkeepers. Manninger of Arsenal and United's Raimond Van Der Gouw were only playing because of injuries to David Seaman and Mark Bosnich. They needed to be on top form as the two teams carved out a string of openings. United, with David Beckham an influential presence, were the more impressive in the early stages as Andy Cole hit the crossbar in and Ryan Giggs missed after being sent clear through. But as the half went on Arsenal began to dominate. In the absence of the injured Emmanuel Petit, Kanu was proving the home side's most influential creative presence. After almost prompting a Bergkamp opener and a Phil Neville own goal, Kanu came close to scoring himself after 33 minutes - but Van Der Gouw somehow clawed away his rising long-range drive. Then it was Manninger's turn to pull off the goalkeeping heroics, as the Austrian produced two stunning saves with his legs in quick succession from Cole and Yorke. Gunners fired up Once Ljungberg had put Arsenal ahead they looked like extending their lead - but Van Der Gouw held Bergkamp's point-blank shot and early in the second half Matthew Upson hit the post. United desperately needed a goal - and against the run of play it came, courtesy of bucaneering captain Keane. The equaliser prompted Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger to reshuffle his side and wiith 15 minutes remaining the Highbury faithful welcomed new signing Davor Suker. The Croatian striker, who flew into London late on Saturday night after playing an international and only met his new clubmates just before the game, almost pulled off a sensational debut. Sensing Van Der Gouw off his line, Suker tried an impudent lob with his first touch in English football - but his effort trailed over. Keane's second gave United the advantage, but there was still time for Arsenal to press for a leveller. Deep into injury time Van Der Gouw saved Upson's header and Martin Keown kicked the ball out of the keeper's hands - but the referee over-ruled the strike for a foul. Teams: Arsenal: Manninger, Dixon, Keown, Upson, Silvinho, Henry, Parlour, Vieira, Ljungberg, Kanu, Bergkamp. Subs: Vivas, Suker, Overmars, Grimandi, Lukic. Man Utd: Van Der Gouw, Neville, Berg, Stam, Irwin, Beckham, Keane, Scholes, Giggs, Yorke, Cole. Subs: Butt, Sheringham, Curtis, Solskjaer, Culkin. Referee: G Poll (Tring)

Subject: FERGUSON SALUTES GOAL KING KEANE Sir Alex Ferguson saluted captain marvel Roy Keane, whose two goals led Manchester United to victory over Arsenal at Highbury. Ferguson insisted he has never doubted the commitment of Keane, who has so far refused to sign a new contract offer. Keane, who is keeping his options open until his current deal runs out next summer, cancelled out Fredrik Ljungberg's opener and grabbed a late winner. And his double-strike left Ferguson crowing: "I've never had any doubts and his performance today tells you that. "He's focused on the team, he's the captain and he wants to try to lead us to another triumph." While delighted with the 2-1 victory, Ferguson also sounded a note of caution about some aspects of his team's performance. "At times we played some great football but at times the defence was very poor," he added. "We almost played like a practice match - you attack and we'll attack - and that created a really open match. "I think you saw the quality of both sides today in quite an enthralling match to my mind. It's an important result." Ferguson added that United are waiting on the extent of Raimond van der Gouw's injury, after the Dutchman was taken off in injury time with a facial injury following a collision with Martin Keown.

Subject: Arseweb talks with their Arse... Manchester United fans - true fans, if there are any - will know that they didn't deserve the victory they took away from Highbury on Sunday, with the match (apparently) finishing 2-1 to United. Fred Ljungberg opened the scoring in the 41st minute when Dennis Bergkamp laid off a lovely ball to the Swede to smash home at Van Der Gouw's far post. And Arsenal came within inches on several occasions, with the Highbury woodwork getting bashed two or three times. Roy Keane gave the Mancunians a 2-1 lead with goals on 58 and 88 minutes - despite an outrageous foul on Vieira in the first few minutes which should have earned a booking, and dissent which should have earned his red card (admittedly after Paddy Vieira nutted him)... but the game ended in something of a farce when Arsenal were denied a perfectly legal injury-time goal. A free kick swung over from the left was headed down towards goal by Matthew Upson, and the United stand-in keeper dived to stop it. He only just succeeded, and only got one hand to it, placed ON TOP of the ball, with the ball sat right on top of the goal line. Martin Keown saw his chance, and stepped forward to smash the ball into the net, just as Raymond Van Der Gouw got a second hand BEHIND the ball. The referee, Graham Poll, didn't seem to know which way to give it, and went to consult his linesman, who called a free kick. The Arsenal players were, quite rightly, enraged. Law XII, as explained on FIFA's official web site, describes the means by which a free kick is conceded. It states that it is only a free kick if the attacker 'tackles an opponent to gain possession of the ball, making contact with the opponent before touching the ball'. As Keown made contact with the ball first, there is no foul. See for yourself if you don't believe us. Arseweb would never claim to be 100% impartial, but as far as we're concerned, the ball was still in play when Keown pounced. Unless the ball is in the full control of the keeper, as Forest's Steve Chettle memorably proved a few years ago, it's up for grabs. Perhaps Graham Poll was aware of the endless flak which a certain Knight of the Realm would doubtless have sent his way if he had dared called it a fair goal. It's a small consolation that the United reserve keeper was stretchered off (although this may have been a timewasting tactic??). Manchester United know they did not deserve that.

Subject: Sol Campbell heading for United? Spurs skipper Sol Campbell has been linked with a sensational 15m move to Manchester United. The Treble winners are in desperate need of a central defensive partner for Jaap Stam, with Wes Brown, David May, Ronny Johnsen and Gary Neville all currently out injured. And the United board has given manager Alex Ferguson permission to plunge into the transfer market in an attempt to repeat last season's feats. There is no reason why the reports would be inaccurate as Ferguson is a long-time admirer of the England international and would love to pair him with Dutchman Stam at the heart of his defence. The question is: would Spurs be prepared to part with their inspirational skipper? If George Graham wants to build a successful team at White Hart Lane, as he currently appears to be doing, then selling Campbell would be seen as a retrograde step. The 24-year-old is arguably Spurs' most important player, and his defensive partnership with Chris Perry is being tipped as the England centre-back pairing of the future. In the end, the decision will probably rest with Campbell himself. With player-power at an unprecedented height, if Campbell decides that he wants a move to Old Trafford then there is little Spurs will be able to do about it. It is also important to note that efforts to persuade him to sign a long-term deal have collapsed on three separate occasions. We await to see if there is a firm offer put forward by United.

Subject: UNITED ODDS-ON FOR TITLE REPEAT Hills make Manchester United 4-5 to retain the Premiership title after their win at Highbury. Roy Keane struck twice in the second half to take Sir Alex Ferguson's men back to the top of the Premiership. Fredrik Ljungberg gave the Gunners the lead on 41 minutes, but Keane levelled on 58. And the Irishman's second with just two minutes remaining settled a superb match. Hills responded to the result by cutting the Old Trafford men to 4-5 from a pre-match 6-5 to retain the trophy they won in May. Ladbrokes meanwhile weren't quite as impressed, and they go 11-10 from 11-8. Arsenal meanwhile have drifted slightly following their defeat. Ladbrokes pushed them out to 3-1 from 9-4, while Hills took exactly the same action. Hills also pushed Chelsea out to 11-4 from 9-4, but Ladbrokes left them unmoved. Leeds are 12-1 with Ladbrokes, and 14-1 with Hills. Meanwhile Tottenham, who topped the table on Saturday night, are currently 25s with Hills.
