Wednesday's fixture will bring back fond memories for Rashford, having scored his first Premier League goals in a 3-2 win over Arsenal back in February 2016, but much has changed since, with the forward highlighting Arsenal's improvement.

Meanwhile the Spaniard warned that the diagnosis for Rob Holding's knee injury "is not good".

Aaron Ramsey also came off with an ankle injury at Old Trafford, but Emery said "it's smaller than Rob's" and that the Wales global will also be assessed on Friday.

Should de Gea be dropped?

However, the Gunners once more failed to protect their lead, Lingard pouncing on some uncertainty in the visitors' box to slide the ball beneath Leno, 74 seconds after United had fallen behind.

Aubameyang was denied again by a sprawling De Gea and Jose Mourinho threw on Paul Pogba, but neither side could find a victor, with United's goalkeeper making a fine late stop to prevent Lucas Torreira from snatching victory. I think we were close, more than them, to do the third goal but De Gea saved two or three times with good action.


What does it mean?

The 37-year-old Swedish professional football star spent two terms at Old Trafford under Jose Mourinho and left the Premier League side in March this year for a move to LA Galaxy.

The first clash between the old rivals since 1986 not featuring either Alex Ferguson or Arsene Wenger in the dugout was a pulsating contest which Unai Emery's Arsenal side will feel they should have won. One of the things have noticed in England is that there are no weak games in the Premier League.

United twice went behind to goals from Shkodran Mustafi and a Marcos Rojo own goal, but they hit back on both occasions. We're just trying to get better game by game.

United had to twice respond to conceding freakish goals.

Nearly everyone, including the United faithful, had their money on an Arsenal win but a late error by Sead Kolasinac allowed the home side to level the score for the second time as the game ended 2-2 at the full-time whistle. "He couldn't play in Kiev in the Europa League or yesterday, and at the moment, I don't know if he can play in Manchester".
