Man Utd's Van der Sar: Arsenal have surprised everyone

Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar admits he's surprised at how well Arsenal have coped after losing Thierry Henry to Barcelona in the summer.

"It would have been obvious to think they would have a poor season without Henry," he told BBC's Football Focus ahead of Saturday's game.

"But boss Arsene Wenger has an eye for talent. He motivates and educates them.

"They have done remarkably well and not many would have expected that. Arsenal are playing well and winning."
