Arsenal were on top for long spells but striker Emmanuel Adebayor wasted some gilt-edged chances, before he appeared to use his arm to open the scoring.

United levelled through a twice-taken Cristiano Ronaldo penalty after William Gallas handled in the Arsenal box.

Owen Hargreaves won it with 20 minutes to go with a superb 25-yard free-kick.

The result all-but ends Arsenal’s hopes of winning the title and after their Champions League exit at the hands of Liverpool in midweek, means they will end a third successive season trophyless.

But the result was desperately harsh on the visitors after a first half in particular of some spellbinding football.

Indeed, they should have put United out of sight – from the first whistle they seemed steadfastly determined to prove they were still in the title race and they played with a verve and a tempo United struggled to live with.

Fabregas was at his orchestral best and with Hleb, playing just behind Adebayor, constantly pulling defenders out of position, the chances soon started to flow.

Fabregas sent a shot narrowly over before Emmanuel Eboue crossed from the right and Adebayor’s shot was superbly blocked by Rio Ferdinand.

Gilberto Silva saw a volley from a corner blocked by his own player, Alex Song, while Adebayor twice failed from promising positions on the edge of the box.
