Arsenal legend questions whether Ozil can 'adapt' to Emery's demands

"We wanted to win but we can feel this point is good". And despite the problems troubling Jose Mourinho and his side at the moment, the Spaniard still expects a tough game.

"It is very hard to win there because they are a very big team with big players and have a big atmosphere pushing them, but it is an exciting match and my motivation is very big". I don't know if Saturday is a possibility, but we're thinking the Europa League game against Qarabag could be a good match for him. "I think in the Premier League it's always a big game - that's one of the things I have noticed here".

United find themselves languishing in eighth position and 18 points adrift of leaders Manchester City after 15 games as pressure mounts on Mourinho, who tried to distance his current squad from the club's great teams of the past amid the Red Devils' inconsistent form.

"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".

Dalot's quick adaptation to life in Manchester has no doubt been aided by his near-flawless English.

Emery said such matters should remain between the players and forgotten come the end of the game, while also suggesting Guendouzi should copy Fellaini in having his flowing locks shaved off.

Both teams showed lots of fight in a frantic and often feisty encounter which saw Unai Emery's Arsenal rack up a 20th unbeaten game in all competitions.

Like Dalot, experienced centre-back Sokratis Papastathopoulos is looking to make an impact during his first season in the Premier League.

The match descended into a scrappier contest, with Arsenal losing Rob Holding and Aaron Ramsey to injury, as both sides seemed to struggle with the torrential rain and slick surface.

"He needs to think about his future, for his family and for him, but if he plays like he did on Sunday, it's the best for him and the best for us". The preparation for this match is also a big motivation for us.

"And we want confidence in every match and we are improving in this".
