The Portuguese is having a hard time at Old Trafford with the Reds in eighth place - 18 points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City and eight off the top four. Nearly immediately after the game restarted, a mix up in defence allowed Jesse Lingard to draw United level with the final goal of the game. "I don't know if Saturday [against Huddersfield] is a possibility, but we're thinking the Europa League game against Qarabag could be a good match for him".

"Especially this month there's a lot of games, so we need everyone in the squad to be fully fit". That's what we want.

"The best news for me is [being] calm, but the doctors are looking at him and they are going to communicate with us".

Though the goal restored Arsenal's lead at Old Trafford, their joy was short-lived.

"He was the first who sent me a message to say welcome back". And if you don't get that, as far as I'm concerned you should be shown the door. He told me, "welcome back, all the best". "I'm not frustrated, I am very proud of the players because they had a very good match for every supporter". We are thinking he will start with us soon.

There is, however, a first league start for Diogo Dalot and returns in defence for Chris Smalling and Eric Bailly.

The dismissal of the prolific skipper, who rates Adelaide as his favourite overseas ground, sparked wild celebrations. The tourists won the toss and put Australia in the field first on the normally bat-friendly Adelaide Oval pitch.

Meanwhile the Spaniard warned that the diagnosis for Rob Holding's knee injury "is not good".

Arsenal were trying to follow up their 4-2 win over Tottenham on Sunday by knocking off another rival. "The spirit and fight is there and we will get there".

"The worst for us today was the news with Rob Holding".

Usually United create a lot of chances here, and I don't think we conceded a lot of chances. Will he take his United team to Liverpool on December 16 and surprise Jurgen Klopp with a bold, attacking display, or will we once again see a repeat of the past two trips to Anfield - both of which ended in dismal 0-0 stalemates - after Mourinho sent his team out to defend above all else?

"Our focus is to get into the first four".

Prizes include, a trip to Old Trafford to watch Man United take on Liverpool in the Premier League, tickets to Ireland's home games in the Six Nations, All Ireland football and hurling final tickets and much more.
