Written by on December 6, 2018

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has suggested that his players need to improve their game management after twice squandering a lead in a 2-2 draw with Manchester United

Arsenal went ahead in both the first and second half, but The Red Devils equalised within four minutes after the opener and less than two minutes after the second.

Emery has said that he is “very proud” of his team’s display at Old Trafford, but feels that the North London outfit failed to maintain control of the fixture.The Spaniard is quoted by BBC Sport as saying: “I think we controlled the game, the second half better than the first. We could have won this match in certain moments, but they equalised very quickly after both our goals.

“We need to improve defensively, but we need to have balance and not lose our attacking chances. We perhaps lost a bit of control there but we created lots of chances after 2-2 and I am very proud of our performance. We wanted to win but we can feel this point is good.

“Sead Kolasinac came off with his head down but I said to him he had a very good match in attack and you have to be positive and learn from this match.”
