Emery believes the injury was a key moment with Arsenal pressing for an equaliser at 2-1 behind.

Fellow defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos also left the field with an ankle injury, less than a week after full-back Hector Bellerin was ruled out for the season with a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament. "I think in the last two matches, at West Ham and against Chelsea, I think this year and after his injuries, they are the performances we want", Emery said of the Arsenal captain in his pre-match presser. "It's hard, you know, but I am working with our players and I think we need - and we can - sign some players to help after our injuries. I think Koscielny will go to the hospital [suspected broken jaw]". He has scored three goals and is still a useful part of Solskjaer's squad.

Two minutes later Lukaku was the provider again as he teed up Jesse Lingard, who calmly slotted past Petr Cech in the Arsenal goal.

United were particularly brilliant on the counter-attack and Emery was asked if the balance in his Arsenal side needs remedying.

Arsenal, sitting in fifth place in the Premier League and tied on points with Manchester United, return to action on Friday with an FA Cup fourth round clash with the Red Devils at the Emirates.

CHINA Chinese economic growth at the lowest level in 28 years
The government estimates China's population will peak at 1.442 billion in 2029 before beginning to decline the year after. "While official data indicated China's economy held up for much of previous year , it now appears to be slowing".

"There'll be a lot of changes (at Madrid) this summer", Calderon was quoted as saying by Sport Bild.

"Our gameplan worked well, we had pressure and chances but in the second half we can take some risk", said Emery.

In the week before Mourinho's exit he played out a 2-2 draw with Arsenal at Old Trafford, but tonight a rejuvenated United head to the capital with renewed confidence and swagger, having won all seven of their matches under Solskjaer.

"Now I can only say he [Monchi] is working in Roma", Emery told a news conference. "He's shown that for England, for us". Let us know in the comments section below.
