Jose Mourinho was left ruing Manchester United's mistakes.



Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho blames his side for not being able to seal a win over Arsenal at Old Trafford.

Mourinho's Red Devils played out a 2-2 draw with the Gunners on Wednesday evening as they dropped down to ninth in the Premier League table, making it four games without a win in the league.

David de Gea's mistake handed Arsenal the opener in the 26th minute but United responded via Anthony Martial four minutes later with a close-range strike.

Alexandre Lacazette then took the lead again in the 68th minute before Jesse Lingard's goal 13 seconds later helped the homeside seal a point.

And following the match Mourinho rued United's mistakes on the day.

"We played against a team that is in the top of their season, in the top of their moment where everything goes well for them. That is clearly a team that is on a high, against a team that has so many problems," he said.

"At the top of these problems, during football matches, we shoot ourselves [in the foot]. Today we had a very, very good start, everybody was expecting 1-0 for us - we score. 1-0 for them.


"Then in the second half our best moment, where Arsenal were clearly trying to stop the game, getting an injury here, an injury there, stop the game again, they were trying to control the game and reduce the intensity of the game. We scored the second goal for them.

"The team had a very good response, had a big soul. We scored four goals and drew 2-2. Even in matches like today where we play well we always shoot ourselves [in the foot]. Sometimes we miss chances with open goals, sometimes we make defensive mistakes, but a fantastic spirit and good performances."
