So, Manchester United bagged the first away win of the season on Saturday with a hard-fought 2-1 win against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

Who would have thought Louis van Gaal's Manchester United would beat Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium this season? With the current form and growing list of injuries, I bet, not many!

But United beat Arsenal on their turf to register their first away win of the season, which propelled them into the Premier League top-four. Many would say United were lucky to register a victory, but I think it was genius of LVG to change up the formation to 3-5-2 for this important game, and it got the right result.

A massive 3 points for Louis van Gaal but the Dutchman has emphasized their real test is whether they are able to maintain this winning momentum in their next two home games against Hull and Stoke City, both managed by former United stars Steve Bruce and Mark Hughes respectively.

Hull have lost their last three games against (seemingly) weaker teams. It's funny but they have spoiled the party for their hosts Liverpool and Arsenal by dening them all three points and I hope they don't continue this trend at Old Trafford.

Steve Bruce doesn't have a great record as a manager against United. Last night, they played a good home game against Spurs but failed to capitalize before losing the game in the last few minutes.

For United, Radamel Falcao is back in training and I hope to see him in action against Hull. I would also want LVG to play Ander Herrera who has been an unused substitute for the past four games. His creativity and guile will surely help United against Hull.
