Emery proud of Arsenal after Holding, Ramsey injuries mar Old Trafford draw

Emery proud of Arsenal after Holding, Ramsey injuries mar Old Trafford draw

After the game, a tweet from the Premier League's official Twitter confirmed that after looking at it, it would officially go down as a Rojo own goal - something Lacazette was quick to question.

Arsenal were trying to follow up their 4-2 win over Tottenham on Sunday by knocking off another rival.

The draw extended United's winless league run to four games , having not picked up three points since beating Bournemouth at the start of November. And Emery seemed to take mainly positives from the result.

A bonkers second half then materialised: mistakes all over the pitch, Marcos Rojo playing like Fabio Cannavaro, Marcos Rojo suddenly giving away a goal, Jesse Lingard equalising literally seconds afterwards, players kicking each other all over the shop, followed by a tense, scrappy finish during which De Gea made three important saves.

"We could not control the game like we wanted for the 90 minutes, but for the second half it gives us confidence this draw. It is not the best, but it is not the worst", he said.

"He's working with us every day in training and playing in the under-23s with good feeling".

"I think the assistant is a big one", stated Scholes.

Only a few seasons ago, Arsenal would have been happy with just a point on their travels to Old Trafford but not last night. "He was with him for a long time, at every club with him, suddenly he's gone".

"He had a backache and now he's working with the physio", Emery said.

"There is a big difference in class [between Manchester United and the Premier League top two] but it wasn't this game that showed us that, we knew that coming into this game because Liverpool and [Manchester] City, I think, are a cut above the rest in this league".
