Arsenal player ratings: Kolasinac struggles, Iwobi fails to impress again and Mkhitaryan shows why he should not start

Unai Emery's men gave away the lead twice as they were held to a 2-2 draw against Jose Mourinho's side at Old Trafford.

Bernd Leno

Made a good save to deny Marcos Rojo's free kick, but he couldn't react quickly enough to stop Anthony Martial's equaliser. Was left with little chance to save the second after some sloppy defending from Arsenal.

Hector Bellerin

Quiet performance from the Spaniard, who wasted a number of chances when he moved up the pitch. Received a yellow card for a pointless foul on Matteo Darmian.

Shkodran Mustafi

Mustafi bagged his second goal of the season when he broke the deadlock for the Gunners. But he was one of the defenders at fault when Jesse Lingard scored the equaliser to make it 2-2.

Rob Holding

Made a promising start, but he was forced off the field after 36 minutes after appearing to pick up a serious knee injury. Following a collision with Marcus Rashford, he was checked over by medics before he carried off on a stretcher.

Sead Kolasinac

Arsenal looked menacing when he charged up the pitch, but they looked massively under threat when he tried to defend. He inadvertently played the ball into the path of Jesse Lingard as United bagged their equaliser.

Lucas Torreira

Looked particularly promising in the first half and his tracking back saved Arsenal on a number of occasions. He linked well with Guendouzi in the middle.

Matteo Guendouzi

Guendouzi looked like he was struggling at times and he was getting overrun in the middle of the pitch.

Aaron Ramsey

Returned to the starting XI tonight after his impressive display against Spurs. But he was forced off at half-time after he appeared to injure his ankle just before the interval.

Alex Iwobi

Gave Manchester United very few problems in the first-half and he was rightly replaced by Alexandre Lacazette in the 65th minute. Didn't do enough to cement his spot in the starting XI, with Lacazette looking dangerous again.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Very quiet first half, but he appeared saw more of the ball after Alexandre Lacazette was introduced. But he missed the chance to make it 3-2 when his close range effort was denied by David De Gea.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan

Started the match on the sidelines – and most fans would argue that is where he should have stayed. Poor performance. Scored a late goal, but it was ruled out for offside.
