Manchester United and Arsenal played out a 2-2 draw on Wednesday, a result that does not do much good for either side’s top-four hopes.
Arsenal stretched their unbeaten run in all competitions to 20 matches but were denied victory by Manchester United as they drew 2-2 at Old Trafford.
Shkodran Mustafi forced a header past David De Gea at a corner to put Arsenal ahead on 26 minutes, but Anthony Martial quickly levelled from close-range after Ander Herrera’s cutback.
An own goal from Marcos Rojo, who turned in under pressure from substitute Alexandre Lacazette, restored the Gunners’ lead on 68 minutes.
But within one minute, Jesse Lingard denied Arsenal their first win at Old Trafford since 2006 with his first Premier League goal of the season.
Both sides had chances to win it, with De Gea tipping away Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s shot and substitute Romelu Lukaku coming close at the other end.
The Gunners drop to fifth on 31 points, while United remain eighth on 23 points.
