Mourinho: We scored four goals and drew 2-2!

Manchester United are now 18 points away from top spot while being eight points away from a top four spot.

United had an answer in the 31st as Leno palmed a Marcos Rojo free kick toward the end line but Herrera kept it in bounds with an industrious effort that went right to Martial. It was all United from then on, followed by a period in which Arsenal finally gained some foothold into the match with a sustained period of possession.

The pair were part of the United side to draw 2-2 with Southampton on the weekend, with Mourinho reportedly calling Pogba a virus in the aftermath.

Arsenal nearly added a third goal in a matter of minutes, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang being superbly denied by De Gea from close range before Mkhitaryan somehow fired over from no more than three yards out.

At one stage it looked as if Arsenal would struggle to see them game out with their full compliment of players as Lucas Torreira, Shkodran Mustafi and Alexandre Lacazette all suffered knocks in the second half.

The Gunners had slowly begun to get on top and it came as little surprise when they took the lead, but their goal came as a result of a glaring error from David de Gea.

A rotated starting XI, which did not feature Romelu Lukaku or Paul Pogba, pressed high - and well - from the first minute, and it worked. While Pogba's performances certainly warranted a demotion to the bench, Lukaku's benching was thought to be queer due to the fact that the Belgian only recently scored his first goal in 12 matches, ending his goal drought.

Wolves registered their first win in seven games despite going behind to Ruben Loftus-Cheek's 18th minute opener for Chelsea. Why must they concede the first goal before they come alive in attack?

Indeed, the quick nature of United's comebacks each time they went down was astonishing as they were behind only for a total of 4 minutes 15 seconds.

United restored parity in fortunate circumstances after Anthony Martial fired home from close range despite replays showing that Ander Herrera was in an offside position when he crossed to the Frenchman. Watching on ahead of the game tonight two of the regular pundits, Rio Ferdinand and Paul Scholes, were unsure of whether Mourinho deserved to get the sack if United get beaten by Arsenal tonight.
