ARSENAL defender Shkodran Mustafi says his side could have taken all three points against Man Utd with a bit of luck.

The visitors went in front twice at Old Trafford but failed to hold on to either lead for more than four minutes.

Mustafi’s header was spilt over the line by David de Gea for Arsenals first goal in the 26th minute.

United equalised through Anthony Martial soon after before a Marcos Rojo own goal put Unai Emery’s side back ahead.

Another defensive error saw United square the scores at 2-2 when Jesse Lingard capitalised on confusion between Sead Kolasinac and Bernd Leno.

Arsenal lost Rob Holding as Aaron Ramsey to injury as Emery was forced into changes before the interval.

But Mustafi thinks Emery’s side could have condemned the hosts to a defeat with a little more luck on their side.

“In the second half the game opened up a little bit and both teams were trying to win,” he told BT Sport.

“At the end of the day, we did quite well to come to Old Trafford…it’s not an easy place to come and win. We tried everything to get the three points.

“We went in front, conceded after that, went in front again and then that’s where we need to be a bit more clever and more sensitive of danger and not concede a second one.

“We’ve had two big games, Tottenham on the weekend and then Man Utd away and we took four points from two really difficult games. I think we can move on from there.

He added: “Obviously, when you play a derby [like we did on Sunday] you’re quite in it and you give 120 per cent. We’re not here to look for excuses.

“We could have done better today, we had a lot of opportunities and when we were going forward we were quite dangerous, a lot of crosses, especially a lot of crosses. And from our right side, as well.

“If we are a bit lucky we can get all three points but we’ll have to take the one point.

“It was important not to lose. We didn’t. Now we have to move on from here.”

The draw means Arsenal have now gone 20 games unbeaten.

The north Londoners welcome Huddersfield to the Emirates on Saturday (3pm).

Man Utd meanwhile host Fulham in their next Premier League at the same time.
