Sokratis reflects on Arsenal's 1-1 draw with Man Utd.

Sokratis has praised Arsenal's defensive resolve in their 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.

Sokratis Papastathopoulos has taken the positives from Arsenal's 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Monday night.

The Gunners defender believes the result at Old Trafford will give Unai Emery’s side confidence in their quest to finish in the top four.

Scott McTominay’s goal at the stroke of half-time was cancelled out by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the 58th minute as both sides shared the spoils. 

"I think we played compact, a team that was better in the defence," Sokratis said as Sky Sports reported. "We were more disciplined and like a team in the difficult moments.

"We didn't win but we take a point and it gives us confidence to go into the next game."

On a potential top-four finish, Sokratis said: "It is a long road. I think it will be very difficult for every team and it is very important for us that we try to win every game at home.

"Last year we didn't have good results away from home, so don't lose. It is very important we are disciplined and take a point away from home."
