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.”
