Goals

Arsenal twice took the lead through Shkodran Mustafi and Marcos Rojo's own goal, but United later equalized with goals from Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard to ensure a share of spoils.

And Emery was happy with the teams good commitment and mentality despite two of his players Rob Holding and Aaron Ramsey having picked injuries in the tie; the Spaniard describing the result as not the best but not the worst too.

Happy

"It was the worst news for us, Rob Holding, we are going to wait for the doctors, but it is a big injury. It's his knee. After these two injuries, every player went out with good commitment and good mentality to keep our performance on the game.

"We couldn't control for the full 90 minutes. This draw is not the best, but not the worst. I said to the players now we need to finish this week well [against Huddersfield Town]. I am very proud for our work and how every player responded in the 90 minutes. When we are winning, it was a good moment, but they equalized very quickly.

"The second half, I think our players worked to win. We were close more than them to get the third goal, but [David] De Gea made good saves," he said

Standing

Arsenal are now unbeaten in 20 games in all competitions as they are in fifth position with 31 points in the Premier League table.
