Jose Mourinho No miracle needed for Manchester United to finish in top four by Nick Metcalfe Published

Jose Mourinho will be without five first-team players when Manchester United welcome Arsenal to Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

David de Gea insists it is down to the Manchester United players to turn around their "bad season" and not only manager Jose Mourinho. Following Bernd Leno's diving save off Marcos Rojo's free kick, Herrera saved the ball from rolling out, crossing it back to Martial for the equaliser.

Arsenal twice took the lead through Shkodran Mustafi's first-half header and Alexandre Lacazette's second-half strike.

"Laurent is very close to playing for us", Emery said.

"There's a big difference in class, we knew that coming into this game", he said.

Liverpool also fell behind but stormed back to beat Burnley 3-1 and cut the gap on leaders Manchester City to two points. "Everyone else is in the chasing pack". The contest won't swing the direction of a Premier League title chase in either team's favor, but it instead offers them the chance to change their own position for a top-four finish and the accompanying spot in next season's UEFA Champions League.

The Gunners are in a fine run of form after securing a 4-2 comeback win over Spurs on Sunday afternoon and arrive full of confidence.

"That's something to build on".

Reports suggested the United manager gave Pogba a dressing down in front of his team-mates after last weekend's 2-2 draw at Southampton, as Scholes suggested France boss Didier Deschamps handled the midfielder better as he shone at last summer's World Cup finals. Befitting a game watched by Tyson Fury, this scrap of a match ended in a draw and plenty of bruises. Mourinho told BBC Sport.

Indeed, Arsenal's opening goal featured that rarest of collector's items, a mistake by United's Spanish global goalkeeper David de Gea.

Pogba and Lukaku both came off the bench in the second half, but we've reached the stage of the season when the perennially-embattled Mourinho begins to make not-so subtle points to the fans and boardroom.
