Jose Mourinho’s Last Stand
Deliberate isolation. Petty feuds. Constant turmoil. The Manchester United manager wouldn’t have it any other way, writes Sam Borden.
Kylian Mbappe and the curse of the World Cup
Is there such a thing as peaking too early? Given all that Kylian Mbappe, just 19, has accomplished, we might soon find out.
United came into the match against Arsenal with no win in three Premier League matches, while their opponents were unbeaten in 19; and while Darmian said he and his teammates had targeted a win beforehand, they were ultimately satisfied with a draw, having twice come from behind.
“I think that it was not the result that we wanted before the game,” he said. “But today was a tough game. We started very well but we conceded two goals.
“I think we had two good reactions after their goals and at the end it was a draw. Now we have to think game by game and try to win a lot of matches because this period is very important. A lot of games are coming and you have to be ready.
“Everyone who played did very well. It was not enough today but now we have to be focused in the next game. You know that when results are not what we want the feelings are not very good. But we have to keep working.”
