Armenia international Henrikh Mkhitaryan has said Arsenal's desire and commitment saw them through to the final whistle at Old Trafford, earning a point from a highly competitive encounter against Manchester United on Wednesday night, according to Arsenal’s official website.

"There is a lot of frustration because we should have won today," he told Arsenal Media after the game. "I think we deserved to win but we drew. We were trying to score the third goal but unfortunately we couldn’t.
