Manchester United's Ashley Young has called for greater protection for players after his team's 2-0 Premier League defeat at Arsenal was disrupted by a fan running on to the pitch and shoving his team mate Chris Smalling.

Alexis Sanchez is set to dig his heels in and resist a transfer away from Manchester United this summer, according to reports in the British media.

.

Two years ago the French side led Barcelona 4-0 after the first leg at home but lost 6-1 in the Camp Nou to go out.

"I'm very proud of our supporters, they pushed us a lot and this is a big result and they created a big atmosphere for our players".

We are two points off Arsenal in fourth, with third placed Tottenham just one ahead of them.

United came back strongly but were unable to take their chances, thwarted by Bernd Leno in the Arsenal goal.

However, Solskjaer refused to condemn United keeper David de Gea after he was left flat-footed by Xhaka's swerving long-range effort. Arsenal are known to give opportunities to the opposition teams to score as they have the least number of clean sheets among the top 6.

Granit Xhaka will definitely receive the plaudits for his outstanding goal in the first half, but he put in one of his best overall performances for Arsenal today.

United were utterly dominant for the first 20 minutes of the second period, but to Solskjaer's frustration conceded a penalty when Alexandre Lacazette charged into the area and hit the floor under minimal contact from Fred.

"We are disappointed with the result but looking at the performance, you can not say it was a game we deserved to lose".

Manchester United pulled off a major coup in Paris midweek when they defeat Paris Saint Germain 3-1 to progress to the quarterfinal of the Champions League against all odds. And Romelu Lukaku's struggles against the Big Six continued, hitting the woodwork from close range with the game still goalless and very much in the balance. As for Chelsea, they face a trip to Anfield in addition to that game at United and, like Arsenal, must juggle league games with Europa League commitments. Ole Gunnar was credited for bringing the best out of Lukaku in the last few weeks but the striker was not up to the task for the visit to Emirates. We are happy today but Chelsea is with us, and so are United and Tottenham. They scored the first one and maybe let us have the ball a bit more than they wanted to.

"Against this team, to take this confidence and three points in the table gets us in a good position for our target".
