Arsenal boss ‘proud’ despite feeling his side could have beaten Manchester United

Arsenal manager Unai Emery was ‘proud’ of his side’s performance after they drew 2-2 with Manchester United at Old Trafford.

The Gunners twice led in Manchester through goals from Shkodran Mustafi and Alexandre Lacazette, but were pegged back through equalisers from Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard.

The draw, coupled with Tottenham’s win over Southampton, see’s Arsenal drop out of the Premier League‘s top four, however Emery was full of praise for his side’s performance and feels his team could easily have taken all three points.

“I think we controlled the game, the second half better than the first. We could have won this match in certain moments, but they equalised very quickly after both our goals.’’ Emery told the press afterwards.

“We need to improve defensively, but we need to have balance and not lose our attacking chances.

“We perhaps lost a bit of control there but we created lots of chances after 2-2 and I am very proud of our performance. We wanted to win but we can feel this point is good.”

Arsenal will be looking to get back to winning ways when they host Huddersfield at The Emirates on Saturday, whilst Manchester United are at home to Fulham.
