Ferguson looks to Gunners for favour

Sir Alex Ferguson watched his Manchester United side demolish Arsenal at the Emirates and then invited Arsene Wenger to go to Stamford Bridge next Sunday and "batter" Chelsea.

United's 3-1 win against the Gunners cut Chelsea's lead at the top of the Barclays Premier League to just one point. It also saw Wayne Rooney notch his 20th league goal of the season and his 100th overall in the Premier League.

Ferguson singled out Rooney as the main difference between the teams and also insisted he was confident the striker was happy at Old Trafford. "Rooney was unbelievable. He was the key player and they couldn't handle him," Ferguson said.

"He's very happy at the club. He's popular among the players and couldn't be a better lad. He's down to earth and won't change because that's who he is.

"That's refreshing in this day and age of celebrity-type footballers with lots of money, but he never changes when some people do change with success."
