Iwobi blames Man United draw on loss of focus

Iwobi blames Man United draw on loss of focus

Dalot impressed on his first Premier League start in the 2-2 draw with Arsenal and is hopeful of keeping his place against Fulham on Saturday. "For me, it is very good". There is no game in which you can relax.

Mourinho's men sit eighth in the league and eight points off the Champions League spots after the entertaining draw with Unai Emery's side. Every team is playing well this season so it's going to be tough, but we'll just keep going.

"Obviously it got to a point where I couldn't carry on, so that break did me well and I am raring to go now". "We knew it was going to be a hard game because Old Trafford is always a tough place to come".

The Reds Devils are winless in their last three games and need a win to take the pressure off Jose Mourinho who has once again come under a lot of criticism for his team's inconsistency. Obviously there will be a lot of rotation, but everyone is there to play and show 100 per cent in each game. It's obvious we needed a goalkeeper, we needed a decent back four, and we need somebody in front of the back four to protect them, and we've got one at long last. The centre-back will be assessed by Arsenal's medical team but he's expected to be out for a while which leaves us light at the back.

Diogo Dalot, who played on the opposite flank to Darmian, struggled against Arsenal's explosive left side, but also back his boss.


"I have been following the Premier League since I can remember, since I first watched football, and to be able to see from the stands for a while and then get on to the pitch, it has all been good experience for me", Dalot said.

Manchester United and Arsenal were forced to settle for a point each after an entertaining match ended 2-2 at Old Trafford.

"We knew that Arsenal like to press and they like to nip at things and bite at things, so we had to put them on the back foot straightaway", Lingard said.

"I think it is our main goal for now to get into the top four and we are going to fight for that and I think are will get there". Our manager is always trying to improve things, so we're never settling. Arsenal could have still scored a victor later on, with Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan both close to scoring, but Iwobi admits they were not focused enough to snatch all three points.
