Comments:

League position: 2nd Unused substitutes: Tim Howard and Phil Neville The FA Premier League's Dubious Goals Committee ruled on the following: - Manchester United’s first goal against Arsenal on 1st February 2005 was in fact an own goal (Ashely Cole) and has therefore not been credited to Ryan Giggs.
