Diogo Dalot goes to sleep thinking of Champions League qualification, such is the 19-year-old's determination to ensure his dream move to Manchester United to play under "one of the best coaches ever" does not turn into a nightmare in his first season.

Speaking after the game, Unai Emery revealed that his team need to up their defensive game if they wish to convert good games into wins.

The England global made headlines recently after scoring the crucial equaliser in his side's 2-2 draw with rivals Arsenal at Old Trafford - his first goal of the season.

I think we were close, more than them, to do the third goal but De Gea saved two or three times with good action.

"That's the main thing". Obviously there will be a lot of rotation, but everyone is there to play and show 100 per cent in each game.

Not least, the collective spirit shown by the players after controversial midfielder Paul Pogba was left on the bench for most of the game. "There are a lot of games, especially this month, so we need everyone in the squad to be fully fit".

Basketball fans have been left in awe after Philadelphia's Ben Simmons provided arguably the pass of the season against Toronto. He was one point shy of his career high in scoring as a Raptor , which came in the team's overtime win against Golden State.

"There's always pressure on people's shoulders when it comes to Man United and it's how you deal with the pressure". We could have won this match in certain moments, but they equalised very quickly after both our goals.

After missing Saturday's 2-2 draw against Southampton due to a back injury, the 24-year-old partnered Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo to form a three-man defence against the Gunners. We're just trying to get better game by game.

"The first pretty much 20 seconds, it got the crowd up on their feet and it kind of gave us a buzz after that".

"So we have to keep working". "We knew it was going to be a hard game because Old Trafford is always a tough place to come".

"I think it's always been an area that we obviously never give up".
