Unai Emery reveals match for Laurent Koscielny's return

Man Utd news

Manchester United dropped Paul Pogba and was held to a 2-2 draw with Arsenal in a bruising match at Old Trafford, leaving Jose Mourinho's team 18 points behind City.

Neither Sir Alex Ferguson or Arsene Wenger were involved in the fixture for the first time since 1986, but the former was in the stands for an encounter as entertaining as some of the memorable clashes during their Premier League duopoly.

Mesut Ozil of Arsenal celebrates after he scores his sides first goal during the Premier League match between Arsenal FC and Leicester City at Emirates Stadium on October 22, 2018 in London, United Kingdom.

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.

But the spirited display against Arsenal was encouraging, given how the Reds twice fought back to quickly draw level after going behind. Nearly immediately after the game restarted, a mix up in defence allowed Jesse Lingard to draw United level with the final goal of the game.

Yet, like so many times this season, they faded.

United were looking increasingly uncomfortable, but few would have predicted De Gea being culpable for the opening goal in the 26th minute.

Shkodran Mustafi put fifth-place Arsenal ahead with a header that was fumbled over the line by United goalkeeper David De Gea but Anthony Martial, who later went off injured, equalized inside four minutes.

Holding had to be carried off on a stretcher in the first half after injuring his knee in a tackle near the sideline, and Emery indicated that the 23-year-old could be facing a lengthy layoff.

United continue with a back five for the visit of Arsenal, but have been able to name a trio of centre-backs with Chris Smalling, Eric Bailly and Marcos Rojo all returning. I played [against Arsenal] and scored and now I am raring to go.

The otherwise impressive Rojo gave possession away under pressure and Lacazette broke through the middle. A front two of Martial and Rashford with Lingard behind caused problems last night and Mata and Sanchez could also play in the system.

Both second-half goals came in a insane minute as firstly Rojo turned the ball off Alexandre Lacazette and into the United net in his attempts to make a last-ditch tackle.

The French striker was joined in the replies by teammates Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
