TWITTER couldn't believe how terrible the Manchester United vs Arsenal game was – with some branding it "pub football".
Players from both sides really struggled to get any rhythm as the match ended in a miserable 1-1 draw.

Scott McTominay finally lit it up with a brilliant strike in the 45th minute – as Arsenal captain Granit Xhaka ducked – but the rest of the first half was a tragic affair as the rain poured down at Old Trafford.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang then netted a second half equaliser after VAR reversed an offside decision described as one of the "worst ever" to allow the goal to stand.
But the lack of quality from both sides was clear as the game failed to live up to the quality of previous encounters between the two heavyweights.
Manchester United legend Roy Keane was in the Sky Sports studio and unsurprisingly blasted the two sides for a "shocking" opening 45 minutes.
He said: "Shocking. We can't believe how bad it is, a real lack of quality, struggling to keep their feet.
"The lack of quality is frightening."
And fans were not afraid to vent their utter frustration on social media.
One said: "This is like watching pub football, just horrid," to which one replied that was being "harsh" on pub football.
Another wrote: "I can’t believe how bad the standard of deadball delivery is in elite level professional football these days. Boys out the pub could put better balls in."
