Manchester United and Arsenal played out a grim stalemate at Old Trafford that provided compelling evidence to illustrate just how far away from a Premier League challenge both clubs are.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: "How many times have we have been 1-0 up and not got the second goal? This is a steep learning curve for us and we'll keep working hard and, with more experience, we'll make the right decisions.
"We didn't get out of the blocks quick enough at the start of the second half. It felt like Arsenal were the more proactive until they scored their goal.
"I felt we could get a goal at the end and we sent men forward. I've been in that situation as a player when you come off and think you could've got more out of a game, but we'll learn from this."
Arsenal manager Unai Emery: "I want more - more in the result and in the performance but we are progressing. We were competitive but we can do better. We can control moments with the ball better and take more chances in the box.
"We have young players who can take confidence. Bukayo [Saka] is progressing well but we need other players too. This is not the best in terms of points but one point can be good if we win next Sunday against Bournemouth."
