Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho backtracks on top four 'miracle' claim

Zinedine Zidane

"But I don't think Everton is going to be in front of Manchester United by the end of the season".

Alexandre Lacazette capitalised on a Marcos Rojo mistake in the second half only for Jesse Lingard to respond nearly immediately, meaning each side had to settle for a draw that does not greatly benefit their top-four ambitions.

However - like in the first half - United found an immediate equaliser.

Arsenal didn't have long to enjoy their lead though - 13 seconds after the restart it was 2-2 as Sead Kolasinac, Sokratis and Bernd Leno were confused by a simple long ball, allowing Jesse Lingard to poke in.

Those were the days when Mourinho could try nearly anything and come out the victor.

That chopping and changing is neatly illustrated by the Portuguese's recent selections at right-back; he has fielded three different options in United's last three starting elevens.

Exhausted legs heighten the chance of injuries but it was still odd to see such an abundance of problems at Old Trafford. Some now are wondering if Emery's Gunners are better off without him in the lineup.

It's a misty evening in Manchester, but Arsenal are in full spirits!

Antonio Valencia is also a doubt due to injury, so youngster Diogo Dalot is in line for his first Premier League start alongside Matteo Darmian who has played just twice in the league this season.

Two others taken off in the Southampton match were forwards Romelu Lukaku (knock) and Marcus Rashford, and there is a question mark over the former.

Rio Ferdinand says the lack of quality during Manchester United's 2-2 draw with Arsenal demonstrates the gulf in class between Manchester City and Liverpool and the chasing pack.

These two teams slogged it out to produce the Premier League's first great rivalry, and while neither are the dominant force of English football these days, Wednesday night's latest war at Old Trafford still promises plenty.

He is one of the best assistants in England but this was a static situation and there were no defenders blocking his view.
