Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho sends message to Gary Neville after Arsenal thriller

Before the match the Portuguese boss had a defensive crisis on his hands.

Mourinho was without the likes of Victor Lindelof, Phil Jones, Antonio Valencia and the suspended Ashley Young.

Diogo Dalot was handed a rare start amid pleads from United fans and he did not disappoint.

After the match, the United boss made a huge claim about the young full-back which says a lot about his performance vs Arsenal.

Gary Neville must be thinking now Manchester United has a very good right-back for 10 years,” he told the BBC.

“We drew 2-2, but we scored four goals, and even when we play well we always shoot ourselves.

“Reality is, in last four matches we didn’t lose. Bad results yes, but we didn’t lose.”

United came from behind twice to earn a draw against the Gunners.

Shkodran Mustafi had given the visitors the lead after a costly error from David de Gea.

Anthony Martial then levelled the scores before half-time.

Marcos Rojo turned into his own net after a scramble with Alexandre Lacazette but a minute later Jesse Lingard was on hand to equalise.

“We shoot ourselves so many times during the season,” Mourinho added.

“Big soul by the players, fantastic attitude from the first minute.

“Some good performances, some players in difficulty, Dalot, Rojo, Darmian, Bailly, Smalling – the boys left their souls.

“We should win the game. We made two big mistakes for the goals.

“The second goal comes in an awful moment when the team was on top of the game.”
