Aaron Wan-Bissaka in action against Arsenal

Wan-Bissaka calls for Reds' unity

Sunday 01 November 2020 20:58

Aaron Wan-Bissaka believes Manchester United didn’t deserve to be beaten by Arsenal at Old Trafford but hopes the Reds' second-half spirit is key to the right response.

It was a subdued performance from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side in the first half following the highs of the 5-0 Champions League thrashing of RB Leipzig last Wednesday.

The Reds picked up the pace in the second 45 minutes but fell to a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang penalty after a Paul Pogba foul in the 69th minute of the clash. 

Aaron Wan-Bissaka picks out a key factor in the Reds' defeat.

“It’s a disappointing result. To come out on the pitch second half and put all that effort in and not to come out with a result,” our right-back told MUTV.

"We come out every game with the mentality to win and put in a good performance but we’ve got to learn from it and put it right in the next game."

The spot-kick knocked the stuffing out of an improved second-half display but the Reds did launch a late rescue act that just failed to pull off an equaliser.

“It’s not easy after a goal goes in. The main thing is to stick together and keep going. That’s all we did,” he said.

The loss sees United still chasing our first Premier League home win of the season following defeats to Crystal Palace, Spurs and now Arsenal, plus a draw with Chelsea.

“It’s strange we’re winning every game away from home and we can’t get a result at Old Trafford,” said Aaron.

“The performance was different [to Leipzig], but as you could see in the second half, we came out with a different mentality and we wanted to create chances. It’s just about taking them.

“Getting clear chances isn’t easy for both sides. It’s just about making them and taking them.”

United now go to Turkey to face Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League on Wednesday before looking to get back on course in the Premier League against Everton at Goodison Park next Saturday lunchtime.
