Arsenal have missed a fantastic opportunity to record their first league win at Old Trafford since 2006 on Wednesday, giving up their heads not once but twice, but that's the way they've made it to Manchester United, which will be the most popular with Unai Emery.
Although they took the lead in every half, the Gunners kept the lead for less than six minutes overall and gave up the 2-1 advantage that was given to them by Marcus Rojo's goal. in just 74 seconds.
That smelled of the "old" Arsenal – the one supposedly swept away by the Emery revolution – but one could argue that Arsene Wenger's team would never have given itself advance in losing on a pitch where she had been returned regularly in the last two years. decades.

What has been said?
Unai Emery: "We are preparing the best we can to win, our team is playing with confidence and we have to do better, we concede too many goals, but by the minute, the balance is good and the score is enough.
"We must continue to improve and seek the best balance for both."
David Wagner: "I'll be [patient], also in the future [with the club’s strikers]. They are aware, like all of us, that our strikers need goals. This is the truth during the season and they still have some games to play to achieve these goals.
"They have their chances, they sometimes create them for themselves, and now, it remains only to put the ball in the nets.
"So, I will always be patient, I think anything else has no meaning, even though we all know that our strikers need more goals, just like the other positions."
