Arsenal manager Unai Emery has suggested that his club need to improve their game management after twice squandering a lead in their 2-2 draw with Man United last night.
Emery’s men went ahead in both the first and second half, but Red Devils equalised within four minutes after the first goal and less than a minutes after the second.
It’s not the W we were after…

The Spanish tactician has said that he is “very proud” of his team’s performance at Old Trafford, but feels that his boys failed to maintain control of the fixture.
“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.
Unai Emery had a message for Sead Kolašinac after his mistake led to Man Utd’s equaliser…
“He came in at the end with his head down.” 😔
“I said Sead, you had a very good match, this can happen.” 👏

“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.” The Spaniard told BBC.
Now Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 13 matches in the Premier League
