Things We Learned From Manchester United and Arsenal's Entertaining Draw

Romelu Lukaku also said he had suffered from fatigue at the start of the Premier League season

United and Arsenal played out a 2-2 draw on Wednesday evening and went the majority of the match without Pogba on the pitch.

Fulham were held to a 1-1 draw with Leicester City at Craven Cottage in mid-week, after Claudio Ranieri won his first game in charge of the Cottagers following a 3-2 win against Southampton at the end of November.

Diogo Dalot has warned Manchester United that Fulham's visit to Old Trafford does not represent an easy chance to get back on track but insists Jose Mourinho is the man to guide his struggling team back into the top four.

Former Manchester United striker Owen is backing the Red Devils to ease to a win over Fulham on Saturday afternoon, despite the ex-England man tipping the Cottagers to find the net at Old Trafford. He has also been an unused replacement in five of the past seven games.

United, in eighth place in the Premier League, have already conceded 25 goals this season - compared with Liverpool's six - and have a goal difference of minus one.

"I think we believe as a squad", he said.

"You have other players at other clubs that needed time and some of them played even less than what Fred is playing".

Mourinho has questioned United's character and competitiveness after the disappointment of draws against Crystal Palace and Southampton, asking whether the team had enough "mad dogs".

"[We are taking it] step by step", Mourinho said when asked about Fred in Friday's media conference.

'We press the ball more, put difficulties to the opponent, we were fast in our transitions, so we had that spirit, we had that mentality that brought our game to a good level, to a better level.

"We're in it as a team".
