Arsenal manager, Unai Emery, has said his team was unfortunate not to beat Manchester United in the Premier League on Wednesday night.

It could have been a first win at Old Trafford since 2006 for the Gunners, but Jesse Lingard’s strike earned United a draw.

“I am very proud for our work and how we responded in the 90 minutes. When we are winning it was a good moment but they equalised very quickly then we got up after their two goals.

“In the second half, our players worked to find a way to win. I think we were close, more than them, to do the third goal but De Gea saved two or three times with good action,” he told Sky Sports.

Alex Iwobi also admitted his frustration over their failure to hold on for victory.

Twice Arsenal took the lead but on both occasions, they were pegged back.

“We knew it was going to be a difficult game because Old Trafford is always a tough place to come.

“I guess it’s a hard one to take because we were ahead twice. Both teams fought hard, though, so I guess a draw is a fair result for both teams,” Iwobi said.
