Unai Emery fearful over Rob Holding's knee injury

Unai Emery fearful over Rob Holding's knee injury

Unai Emery has confirmed that Rob Holding has suffered a serious knee injury during Arsenal's 2-2 draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

"This is a performance of big soul and heart, [Marcus] Rashford, just to give a name, gave everything for the shirt".

The latest blight on De Gea's record came in Wednesday's Premier League match against Arsenal at Old Trafford.

Arsenal took the lead through a Mustafi header, as David De Gea did his best Jordan Pickford impression to fumble the ball inches over the line, with Ander Herrera unable to clear it in time.

However, it took United just four minutes to find an equaliser.

It's often a tell-tale sign when a visiting player is applauded off the pitch by the home supporters as the United faithful did when Holding made his way down to the dressing room on the stretcher.

Arsenal nearly added a third goal in a matter of minutes, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang being superbly denied by De Gea from close range before Mkhitaryan somehow fired over from no more than three yards out. "We could have won this match in certain moments, but they equalised very quickly after both our goals".

Wilder remains WBC heavyweight champion after draw with Fury
Former two-weight world champion Andre Ward wrote on Twitter: "A draw, I understand (even tho I feel Fury won by a 2 or 3 rds)". This performance showed he has convincingly recovered from that, and he may even again prove the best heavyweight in the world.

James Milner levelled for the Reds after Jack Cork's surprise opener and substitute Roberto Firmino set Liverpool on course for a 12th win in 15 league games with his first touch before Xherdan Shaqiri rounded things off.

Ferdinand, who praised Mourinho's decision to make wholesale changes for the fixture after being held to a draw against Southampton, says the game demonstrated the gulf in class between City, Liverpool and the rest.

His only concern was a nasty-looking ankle injury sustained by Joe Gomez in the first half.

Tottenham have 33 points, six behind Liverpool, and two more than Chelsea and Arsenal.

Arsenal were barely done celebrating when the ball was in the net at the other end as a misunderstanding between Sead Kolasinac and Leno allowed Jesse Lingard to nip in and equalise.

"We shoot ourselves so many times during the season that it's really hard, but fantastic attitude, many players in difficulties, some good performances but players in difficulty, Diogo Dalot first start, Marcos Rojo first minutes, Matteo Darmian first start, Eric Bailly doesn't play for a couple of months, Chris Smalling a courageous guy to play with such difficulties he had".
