  • Iwobi Reacts To Arsenal's Draw With Manchester United

Jose Mourinho's men have endured a troubled start to the campaign, with the team languishing in eighth place and eight points off the top four after Wednesday's action-packed 2-2 draw against Arsenal at Old Trafford.

Meanwhile the Spaniard warned that the diagnosis for Rob Holding's knee injury "is not good".

The Uruguay international's energy and defensive nous has given Arsenal improved protection in front of the back four, although Torreira's Spurs strike was his maiden goal in the Premier League. "The 15 minutes he was on the pitch he played well, in a moment where our defenders couldn't push up".

Aubameyang was denied again by a sprawling De Gea and Jose Mourinho threw on Paul Pogba, but neither side could find a victor, with United's goalkeeper making a fine late stop to prevent Lucas Torreira from snatching victory.

"I think we had two good reactions after their goals and at the end it was a draw".

What does it mean?

Marco Asensio opened the scoring after the half hour, setting in motion a flurry of three goals in six minutes. This match is available in most nations through the rights holders' online platform, if they have one.

Mourinho certainly saw some of the spirit and "simplicity" he was looking for from his players and, given their injury problems, he will not be too disappointed to take a point.

Ozil was left out of the Arsenal's starting XI for their recent away win over Bournemouth and Emery admitted afterwards that he had doubts over whether his clubs highest paid player could handle the "intensity" required against Eddie Howe's side.

Manchester United and Arsenal square off at Old Trafford in an hour and we can confirm the teams.

Unai Emery's side extended their unbeaten run to 20 matches, insisting he was "proud" of his side's efforts against the Red Devils. One of the things have noticed in England is that there are no weak games in the Premier League. Shkodran Mustafi put fifth-place Arsenal ahead with a header that was fumbled over the line by United goalkeeper David De Gea, while an own goal by Marcos Rojo allowed the visitors to lead 2-1 later in the game.

"I need to adapt considering the team I'm now playing in, the coach and the league I am playing in".

Similarities there, sure, but the mood in the two camps is very different.
