Manchester United and Arsenal played out a gripping draw as José Mourinho's side twice responded to freakish goals and secured a share of the spoils at Old Trafford.

Shots were few and far between for the remainder of the first half and after Rob Holding was forced off injured, five players picked up yellow cards for separate fouls in the space of 310 seconds.

United's recent form has been in stark contrast to Arsenal's, as Jose Mourinho's side have only a single victory in their four most recent outings - a 1-0 defeat of Young Boys in the Champions League last week, a game they only won thanks to a last-gasp Marouane Fellaini strike.

Ferdinand was up first, saying: "I don't know it's a hard question that, is there a ready-made replacement out there that they can go and get immediately?"

A rotated starting XI, which did not feature Romelu Lukaku or Paul Pogba, pressed high - and well - from the first minute, and it worked.

"I could speak about everyone, including Marcos Rojo, that in my opinion played a very good game".

"I have to disagree with people who try to compare this to teams of Roy Keane, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Nemanja Vidic, give us a break and time", Mourinho said. "I knew it, with the surgery, when [Rojo] was coming back he went to the national team and played two matches in three days, and he had a problem again". "For us, for our confidence, our level in the competition and our way, I think we can think very positively". Following the match, his opinion wouldn't have changed much as Chelsea's surprise loss to Wolves meant that they still trail the 4th position by a total of 8 points and that United would certainly need their opponents to drop more points - while accumulating the maximum number of points themselves that they can.
