Arsenal defender Rob Holding could be facing a period of six to nine months on the sidelines with a knee injury, according to a report. A front two of Martial and Rashford with Lingard behind caused problems last night and Mata and Sanchez could also play in the system.

Emery added: "He had backache and now he's working with one physio. Tomorrow will be the decision".

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has again attacked the performance of Jose Mourinho's team after their 2-2 draw with Arsenal.

Emery thinks Ramsey's is just "a small injury" but fears Holding could be out for some time, and the Gunners head coach praised his side for responding well to those setbacks.

"The worst news for us", he told a news conference. "The club can give us communication about this". When we are winning, it was a good moment, but they equalised very quickly.

Aaron Ramsey also came off with an ankle injury at Old Trafford, but Emery said "it's smaller than Rob's" and that the Wales global will also be assessed on Friday.

Further, last night saw Eric Bailly and Marcos Rojo stride forward from the back with far more goal than United's defenders usually do in a four-man backline. "There's a long way to go in the season, so for us it's about taking every game as it comes and trying to get the three points".

'A result like today and how we are playing is good for our confidence.

" Even in matches like today, where we played well we always shoot ourselves."
"We need the same spirit as on Sunday [against Spurs]".
