The midfielder started against United in Unai Emery's first visit to Old Trafford as Arsenal manager, the first time they have made the journey north without Arsene Wenger at the helm since 1996.

Nigerian star Alex Iwobi has said Arsenal's 2-2 draw with Manchester United in the Premier League is a "fair result" for both sides.

Claudio Ranieri's side are rock bottom of the Premier League table despite picking up a point against Leicester on Wednesday but the Portuguese. "The next step, I think, is with us". "There's a long way to go in the season, so for us it's about taking every game as it comes and trying to get the three points".

"I think we had two good reactions after their goals and at the end it was a draw".

"We sleep thinking about (getting into the top four) and we wake up thinking about that and for sure we will get there".

"The first pretty much 20 seconds, it got the crowd up on their feet and it kind of gave us a buzz after that".

Real Madrid 'Agree Terms' With Hazard
Hazard is about to enter the final 18 months on his contract at Stamford Bridge and is no closer to penning an extension. Madrid have always been interested in Hazard with club president Florentino Perez a big admirer of the 24-year-old.


"I have been following the Premier League since I can remember, since I first watched football, and to be able to see from the stands for a while and then get on to the pitch, it has all been good experience for me", Dalot said.

Aaron Ramsey also came off with an ankle injury at Old Trafford, but Emery said "it's smaller than Rob's" and that the Wales worldwide will also be assessed on Friday.

"I think he is one of the best coaches ever and for me it is a dream come true to be alongside him and to learn from him". It was an enjoyable summer and a good season for me on a personal level last season.

The 33-year-old has played twice for the U23's and U21's over the past two weeks and Unai Emery has suggested Koscielny could be in contention against Huddersfield - although the Europa League tie with Qarabag is more likely.

"Between us [there are] no problems - between the manager and the players", Darmian told ESPN Brazil. "Tomorrow we'll train before the game on Saturday and that's the moment you can know if the players will be okay or not for Saturday".

Burnley took the lead at Turf Moor through Jack Cork - but three second-half goals from James Milner, Roberto Firmino and Xherdan Shaqiri wrapped up an impressive comeback win for the Reds.
