Manchester: Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho dubbed his side "the unluckiest team in the English Premier League" after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Arsenal on Saturday.
United claimed reward for their mounting pressure when Juan Mata put them ahead in the 69th minute, only for Olivier Giroud to equalise a minute from time with Arsenal's first attempt on target. United have won just two of their last nine league games and trail Arsenal by six points.
"Of course it is two points dropped. We were the best team by far. They had no chances to win," the Man U manager said.
"They are the lucky ones and we are the unlucky ones. The team played very well. This team at the moment is the unluckiest team in the Premier League. That is the reality," Mourinho added.
Arsenal had not troubled United goalkeeper David de Gea until Giroud climbed to head home fellow substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's cross.
