Manchester United fans optimistic despite loss to Arsenal

Manchester United fans optimistic despite loss to Arsenal

Moments later and Arsenal were celebrating the goal their early dominance deserved as Xhaka hit a speculative effort with De Gea badly caught out by the swerve on the ball.

They had already created a number of half-chances when Xhaka gave his team the lead in the 12th minute with a shot that seemed to catch goalkeeper David De Gea by surprise, totally wrongfooting the Spaniard as it dipped into the far corner from 25 yards (meters) out.

While United tried to come back into the match, the Red Devils were dealt a major blow when they conceded a penalty in the second half.

"We started slow, maybe it was a backlash from Wednesday night", Solskjaer said.

It will have been a case of Solskjaer saying in the dressing room before the game, 'right lads, you four and you four do the donkey work in midfield and defence and those two will win the game for us.

"The first 40 minutes I think we controlled, we scored and we didn't concede good chances to them".

If Everton scouts were at the game, they would have been impressed with the manner in which he took his goal, as well as his all-round performance.


"It's not scratching your head". They just need to have another couple of days' training with the team.

It should be a cracking match at the Emirates on Sunday, and one that could potentially make a massive difference in the league table. Of course, the penalty - I think the referee will be disappointed when he sees this, I don't think it's a penalty. 'It was great to have fresh legs - Scott (McTominay), Fred - they do cover the ground so much so it's something we have to consider.' Paul Pogba is available after serving a European ban in Paris, while fellow midfielders Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera are pushing for a return from injury. "The ball moves so unusual, and when you see it on telly, it looks like it goes to David's left and it just changes direction".

"Like the first 40 minutes, we can do it with our supporters also, to have the possibility to come back".

The difference could be up top, where Man United have a red-hot duo in Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku (who has 3 consecutive braces), while Arsenal have one low on confidence in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and one who could be considered the same in Alexandre Lacazette. With the scores level at 0-0, the home side began to press forward looking for the opening goal.

Remember the fans who scoffed when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was made caretaker manager of Manchester United?

"Not at all", he said. The talent at Emery's disposal certainly suggests that they have the potential to go far, but he can not play a weakened side as he did in the first leg.

"But we know this result is not good".
