- Manchester United were defeated 1-0 by Arsenal at home in the Premier League
- Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored the only goal from the penalty spot
- Aaron Wan-Bissaka has called for United to stick together through tough period
- United sit a lowly 15th in the Premier League, with seven points from six games
Aaron Wan-Bissaka has insisted that Manchester United need to stick together to end their nightmare start to the Premier League season.
United were defeated 1-0 by Arsenal on Sunday at Old Trafford, producing an insipid display as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s second half penalty sealed the three points for the Gunners.
The defeat has left United languishing in 15th in the Premier League with just seven points from their first six games.

‘It’s a disappointing result. To come out on the pitch second half and put all that effort in and not to come out with a result,’ the United right back told MUTV after the final whistle.
‘We come out every game with the mentality to win and put in a good performance but we’ve got to learn from it and put it right in the next game.’
After being dominated against in the first half, United came out stronger after the break but the tempo of the game soon swung in Arsenal’s favour again after Paul Pogba fouled Hector Bellerin in the penalty area.
Aubameyang then converted the penalty in the 69th minute at Old Trafford, sending David De Gea the wrong way.

‘It’s not easy after a goal goes in. The main thing is to stick together and keep going. That’s all we did,’ Wan-Bissaka added.
United – who had just thrashed RB Leipzig 5-0 at Old Trafford in the Champions League – have failed to win at home in the Premier League this season, having already lost to Crystal Palace, Tottenham and Arsenal while drawing to Chelsea.
This will come as a huge concern to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as he desperately looks to turn the tide and Wan-Bissaka admits he can’t put his finger on why United can’t get the results at home.

He continued: ‘It’s strange we’re winning every game away from home and we can’t get a result at Old Trafford.
‘The performance was different [to Leipzig], but as you could see in the second half, we came out with a different mentality and we wanted to create chances. It’s just about taking them.
‘Getting clear chances isn’t easy for both sides. It’s just about making them and taking them.’
