Brawl on Field Between Arsenal and Machester United

Arsenal, Manchester United

“The brawl started as it was a really bad challenge on Denis Irwin. In the heat of the moment you don’t really understand what you’re doing, with so many people watching the game in the ground and on TV around the world,” McClair told Red Army Bet.

The referee was able to gain control of the situation and calmed things down.

“Looking back I’d have to say it was great having people in the team who had your back, but you could also say the same about the Arsenal players.”

Earlier, Limpar scored the only goal of the game – although replays appeared to show that United keeper Les Sealey stopped his whipped-in ball from crossing the line.

Frustration turned into anger when Winterburn sent Irwin tumbling in the game. Players from both sides joined the melee.

Only Limpar and Winterburn were booked by referee Keith Hackett for their actions.

The teams of Manchester United and Arsenal both fined several of their players. Additionally, Arsenal punished their manager, George Graham. Both teams were fined by the FA, with Arsenal docked two points and United one. Arsenal went on to become the champions.

The match instigated an intense rivalry between the two teams, who competed with each other for silverware regularly through the 1900s and 2000s.

There may not be any silverware on the line in the Sunday, March 10, 2019 match. However, the stakes are high with fourth-placed United and fifth-placed Gunners battling it out for a Champion League spot.
