Mustafi Man United v Arsenal

Mustafi reveals Arsenal ‘tried everything’ to win after 2-2 Manchester United draw

Arsenal’s Shkodran Mustafi says his side ‘tried everything’ to win following Wednesday night’s 2-2 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford.

The German defender opened the scoring for Unai Emery’s side before Anthony Martial levelled in the first-half. Alexandre Lacazette put Arsenal back in front in the second period, but the lead lasted less than a minute as Jesse Lingard earned the hosts a point.

“I think we did well.’’ Mustafi told BT Sports.

“We tried everything to take the three points home, but we have to be a little more clever and sensitive to danger to avoid the second one.

“But we have taken four points from two difficult games after Tottenham at the weekend.

“We gave 120% in the derby, but we are not here to give excuses. With a bit of luck we could take three points, but it is always important not to lose.”

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.
