Emery proud of Arsenal after Holding, Ramsey injuries mar Old Trafford draw


Liverpool on Thursday closed back to within two points of Premier League leaders Manchester City by coming from behind to beat Burnley 3-1 as Manchester United and Arsenal shared the spoils in a thrilling 2-2 draw at Old Trafford. "I wasn't really 100 per cent fit, but I feel raring to go now".

"I wanted to kickstart this season in the same form and obviously you have setbacks throughout the season, but it's how you bounce back". "I'm not frustrated, I am very proud of the players because they had a very good match for every supporter".

The same goes for United as a whole, having limped through recent weeks.

United as a squad need to start bouncing back after three Premier League draws against Crystal Palace, Southampton and Arsenal caused the loss of six points in the race for the top four. But Lingard insists there is still confidence in the dressing room.

"If we can manage our game before it would be better but it's a fantastic mentality and we need to continue this".

"We played very well for 55 minutes and then suddenly we were another team", Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri said.

"They have a big squad to find a solution while it is more hard for us to put in place the team". That's the main thing.

"There's always pressure on people's shoulders when it comes to Man United and it's how you deal with the pressure", Lingard said, arguing that United could still finish in the Champions League places.

Asked to comment on his bit-part role in a 2-2 draw with Arsenal, the club's record £89million signing shrugged and said 'what do you want me to say?' before disappearing into the night.

"Jose Mourinho brings all his experience and knowledge of the game to us all, not just me".

"I feel ready now for a run in the side and as long as the coach needs me I will be ready for him".

One impressive trait that United have managed to display this season is an ability to come back, which they twice did to secure a point against Arsenal.

"In the game we conceded chances, we had chances also".

"We were unlucky because we started to play good in the first half, but we had two injured (players, Rob Holding and Aaron Ramsey) and we had to change so it was not easy for us".
