Arsenal star: Manchester United didn’t deserve to win

Szczesny

Goalkeeper Szczesny says Gunners deserved draw at Old Trafford.

Arsenal might have taken some criticism for their lacklustre performance against Manchester United on Sunday – but goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny says they deserved a point.

The Gunners were beaten 1-0 at Old Trafford thanks to Robin van Persie’s first-half header, failing to score despite having 60 per cent possession and 10 shots on goal.

The result brought to an end Arsenal’s 15-game unbeaten run away from home, although Arsene Wenger’s side remain two points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

And Szezesny believes they did enough to merit a draw against David Moyes’ side.

“I thought it was a very even game and it looked like a 0-0 to me,” he told Arsenal Player. “It probably would have been a fair result but they scored a good goal from a set-piece so we'll take that on the chin and try to move on.

“I think we controlled the game in the second half. But they set up to defend more than anything else and we were always going to take control of the game with our passing.

“I don't think there were a lot of chances in the whole 90 minutes but they took the one they had and that made the difference.

“Of course [we’re still in a good position]. The other teams dropped points this week as well but we didn't want to drop three points - we came here for all them and we're disappointed about not getting it.

“It’s important for us to get back to winning ways as quickly as we can and make the difference at the top of the table bigger.”
