Manchester United players and Jose Mourinho have 'no problems' - Matteo Darmian

Manchester United players and Jose Mourinho have 'no problems' - Matteo Darmian

Only 15 matches have been played in the Premier League but United are already eighth and eight points adrift of the top four following Wednesday's entertaining 2-2 draw at home to Arsenal.

"There are no weak games [in the Premier League], there's no chance to relax and most of all for us because we need to get points and to climb up the table", he told Sky Sports News.

Speaking after the game, Unai Emery revealed that his team need to up their defensive game if they wish to convert good games into wins.

United came into the match against Arsenal with no win in three Premier League matches, while their opponents were unbeaten in 19; and while Darmian said he and his teammates had targeted a win beforehand, they were ultimately satisfied with a draw, having twice come from behind.

"I think it is our main goal for now to get into the top four and we are going to fight for that and I think we will get there".

"A lot of games are coming and you have to be ready".

"I mean, everyone that came off the bench showed their fighting spirit".

"Now we have to think game by game and try to win a lot of matches because this period is very important", Darmian added.

After missing Saturday's 2-2 draw against Southampton due to a back injury, the 24-year-old partnered Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo to form a three-man defence against the Gunners. We can only focus on our own performances.

"Jose Mourinho brings all his experience and knowledge of the game to us all, not just me".

"The first pretty much 20 seconds, it got the crowd up on their feet and it kind of gave us a buzz after that".

"I think we had two good reactions after their goals and at the end it was a draw".

"I am very proud for our work and how we responded in the 90 minutes". "We knew it was going to be a hard game because Old Trafford is always a tough place to come".
