Sead Kolasinac

Arsenal manager, Unai Emery, has revealed defender Sead Kolasinac was sad after his error gave Manchester United the goal that saw the Gunners draw 2-2 on Wednesday night.

Marcos Rojo’s own goal looked to have helped Arsenal record their third straight Premier League win, but Jesse Lingard capitalised on the Kolasinac’s mistake to score.

The Bosnian opted to take a touch rather than clear first time, allowing Lingard to slot past a stranded Bernd Leno.

Speaking after the match which stretched Arsenal’s unbeaten record to 20, Emery refused to blame the Bosnia and Herzegovina defender.

He said: “I am not frustrated. At the end Kolasinac had his head looking down and I said to Sead you had a very good match and you gave us a lot of good circumstances where we could have scored with your actions – these things can happen in defence.

“These things can happen and above all be positive and learn with this action.”
