  • Marcos ROJO plays in first Manchester United match against Arsenal since May

United and Arsenal played out a 2-2 draw on Wednesday evening and went the majority of the match without Pogba on the pitch.

"I think when the team is defensively stronger, the horizons for Fred change completely". Despite the back and forth nature of the game, Emery's side still came away from Old Trafford with a 2-2 draw, a creditable result.

"Fulham is a big game now".

Mourinho is expecting a hard afternoon against the Cottagers, whose boss Claudio Ranieri he described as "one of the two most important managers in the history of the Premier League" on the eve of the game.

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

Manchester City vied with United for Fred's signature but, like January acquisition Alexis Sanchez, Pep Guardiola's men may well be thinking they have had a lucky escape.


United twice came from behind against Arsenal - fast becoming a feature of the season - to prove they are not ready to throw in the towel and Dalot insists the whole squad is behind the manager.

Jesse Lingard says there is plenty of time for Manchester United to claw their way back into the top four.

"And as footballers, we just enjoy our football and want to win games". The 47-year-old said, "Not frustrated, for example, he (Kolasinac) was coming at the end of the match with his head looking down". "I sat here a few weeks ago speaking about the December month and no defeats that's a reality, good fights, good spirit, but just one victory against Young Boys and three draws and we need points, but Fulham is the same, they need points".

A draw against Arsenal took their tally to 23 points from 15 games.

"We sleep thinking about getting into the top four and we wake thinking about getting into the top four", Dalot added.
