David de Gea sends ultimatum to Man Utd team-mates after errors in Arsenal draw

David de Gea demanded better from his Manchester United team-mates after they drew 1-1 with Arsenal on Monday night.

United took the lead late on in a drab first half when Scott McTominay rounded off a counter-attack with a fierce drive into the top left corner.

Arsenal responded well in the second period and equalised, with the intervention of VAR, through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Axel Tuanzebe, drafted in for the ill Aaron Wan-Bissaka, gave the ball away deep in his own half and Harry Maguire was not able to get back in line quick enough, keeping Aubameyang onside despite the linesman’s initial flag.

“We had good chances, of course they had too, but the better ones I think we for us. It is time to look forward and try to win every game.

“This is Manchester United so we have to win these games. The lads have to react and play better than they are doing.

“We are a team but we have to improve. We are looking forward to the next game and we will try to win.”

Solskjaer has won four of his 14 league games in permanent charge but remained positive after the draw.

“We go 1-0 up and then we don’t get the second goal that we want to get,” he said. “That’s the learning now for this time. Be more cynical, clinical.

“There are so many games we have been 1-0 up. We will learn. It’s a bad goal to give away but sometimes you make those passes, you play out and it looks good. We learn from it.

“We are at the start of building something. It’s just a bit disappointing that we can’t get that second goal.

“Effort is never a problem with these boys. They are working hard in training to improve. They were a bit passive at the start. We could have taken more risks going forward.”

Arsenal fans also left the ground disappointed and Unai Emery reflected that in his post-match assessment.

“I want more – more in the result and in the performance but we are progressing,” the Spaniard said. “We were competitive but we can do better.

“We can control moments with the ball better and take more chances in the box. We have young players who can take confidence.

“Bukayo [Saka] is progressing well but we need other players too. This is not the best in terms of points but one point can be good if we win next Sunday against Bournemouth.

“We are very happy with him [Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang] and he is with his goal. We need more players with the ability to score.”
