Manchester United have considerable defensive worries ahead of Arsenal clash

Emery Provides An Update On The Injuries To Holding & Ramsey

Rob Holding we are going to wait for the doctors, but it is a big injury.

Given the relentless pace being set by City at the top of the table, Liverpool couldn't afford any slip ups at Turf Moor despite Jurgen Klopp making seven changes with Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino left on the bench and Sadio Mane missing through injury.

United's recent form has been in stark contrast to Arsenal's, as Jose Mourinho's side have only a single victory in their four most recent outings - a 1-0 defeat of Young Boys in the Champions League last week, a game they only won thanks to a last-gasp Marouane Fellaini strike.

The Portuguese boss' comments came after United's 2-2 draw against Arsenal at home, pinning back the opposition both times after conceding silly goals.

"Every time David de Gea had the ball all my defenders were dead in front of him and I want the team to come up, I want defensive line to push up, I want to play in the opposition half, at that moment we have [Marouane] Fellaini, we have Lukaku, we have Paul, but every time David had the ball, everybody was dead".

The latest blight on De Gea's record came in Wednesday's Premier League match against Arsenal at Old Trafford. Foraying into the opposition half from the very start, the home side had their first shot on target as early as the 4th minute, Rashford shooting with venom straight at Leno.

"Our injuries are leaving us in a very hard position to manage, and I have to say that some of our players deserve real credit for their team ethic and bravery to be playing in positions that are not natural to them; for example, Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic playing as central defenders in our last match". Sead Kolasinac's sloppy touch of a loose ball allowed Lingard to poke an equalizer through Leno's legs.

"We could not control the game like we wanted for the 90 minutes, but for the second half it gives us confidence this draw. It means we have to maintain these standards", said Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo. "You have to take the positives from somewhere and that's the job of the management, to say "listen there were certain things we can take positives from" then build on it".

But Lingard scored in less than a minute!

Honours were also even in a 1-1 draw between Everton and Newcastle as Richarlison cancelled out Salomon Rondon's opener.
