Gift goals extend United’s misery
Jose Mourinho accused his Manchester United players of shooting themselves in the foot as he saw his understrength team gift Arsenal two goals in a 2-2 draw that extended their winless Premier League run to four games.
United, who started with Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku on the bench, showed great spirit to come back twice, with equalisers from Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard.
But after a defeat at Manchester City and dispiriting draws with Crystal Palace and Southampton, United are now 18 points behind leaders City and actually closer to the relegation positions than they are to first place.
United also trail Chelsea and Arsenal by eight points in the battle for a place in the top four
