Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says his team showed big heart and soul
to twice come from behind to earn a two all draw against Arsenal.
Mourinho dropped high-profile duo of Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku after recent disappointing
performances which have brought only three points from the past twelve available.
However despite the fact that the entire set up lacked initial quality lacking, no-one could doubt his side’s endeavour and character.
Goalkeeper David de Gea made an
uncharacteristic error as he failed to deal with Shkodran Mustafi’s tame 26th-minute header,
which Ander Herrera could not clear before it crossed the line.

extended their unbeaten run this season to 20
games, dropping to fifth.
Manchester United next play Fulham at the Old Trafford on Saturday while Arsenal entertain
Huddersfield at the same time.
