As Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger prepare to renew their rivalry on Saturday we look back at which game was the most ill-tempered between both clubs.
1) Manchester United 2-1 Arsenal – Premier League, August 29, 2009
This ill-tempered match recorded 9 yellow cards and a sending -off for Arsene Wenger. The Frenchman was sent to the stands after kicking away a plastic bottle in frustration when Robin van Persie’s injury time strike was ruled out for offside.
Abou Diaby’s 64th minute own goal sealed the win for United after Wayne Rooney had scored from the penalty spot just five minutes earlier. Six of the nine yellow cards shown in this match were to Arsenal players.
