Arsenal boss Emery: We must improve defensively; what I told Kolasinac...

Arsenal boss Unai Emery admitted some frustration after their 2-2 draw with Manchester United.

Emery felt they had control of the game.

He said, "I think we controlled the game, the second half better than the first. We could have won this match in certain moments, but they equalised very quickly after both our goals.

"We need to improve defensively, but we need to have balance and not lose our attacking chances.

"We perhaps lost a bit of control there but we created lots of chances after 2-2 and I am very proud of our performance. We wanted to win but we can feel this point is good.

"Sead Kolasinac came off with his head down but I said to him he had a very good match in attack and you have to be positive and learn from this match."

On Rob Holding's injury, the manager added: "The worst news is the Rob Holding injury, the doctors think maybe it is a big injury but we are going to wait (to find out), it is his knee.

"Ramsey I think is a small injury but they showed us that afterwards every player responded with a good quality."
