Manchester United are now four matches without a win in the Premier League following their 2-2 draw with Arsenal.
Jose Mourinho’s side were behind twice during their clash at Old Trafford but fought back to earn a point thanks to goals from Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard.
The truth is, though, United are now closer to the relegation zone than they are to table toppers Manchester City - who are 18 points ahead of them.
While a draw against an in-form Arsenal side isn’t a terrible result for United, Mourinho was frustrated with some of the tactics employed by Unai Emery’s side.
Mourinho said that Arsenal were “wanting the draw, diving, getting the game stopped and waiting for the game to go to the end.”
However, United were guilty of some foul-play as well.
Marcos Rojo, Jesse Lingard and Nemanja Matic were all booked in the first-half but it was Marouane Fellaini that everyone was talking about after the game.
That was because Fellaini was seen pulling back Matteo Guendouzi by the hair as the Arsenal midfielder ran past him.
It wasn’t spotted by referee Andre Marriner, although he did give Arsenal a free-kick.
And it’s for that reason Fellaini won’t be punished.
Chief football correspondent for the Daily Telegraph, Jason Burt, confirmed that news by tweeting: “There will be no retrospective action against Manchester United's Marouane Fellaini after pulling the hair of Arsenal's Matteo Guendouzi during Wednesday's Premier League match as referee Andre Marriner gave a free-kick for the incident.”
Fellaini is a very lucky boy.
There was a belief that the midfielder would be banned for three matches - the same punishment Robert Huth received by being found guilty of pulling Fellaini’s hair back in 2016.News Now - Sport News
