Four draws at home in a row for the first time in Premier League history for Manchester United as another promising display was to no avail as West Ham's early goal meant the visitors once again left Old Trafford with a point.

Diafra Sakho's strike 90 seconds into the game was the earliest ever goal scored at Old Trafford by an opponent in the Premier League era, and it was Jesse Lingard's reckless foul that led to the goal.

What a time to be a live! Manchester United may progress into the next round of the Europa League after beating Feyenoord on Thursday evening, but that's hardly what fans, pundits and journalists alike were discussing after the game.

Ando: I won four league titles and Gerrard won none

Following the retirement of Steven Gerrard, Anderson has reminded everyone that he won the Premier League four times, while the former Liverpool captain ended his career without ever being a champion.

I won everything at the club. I won four Premier Leagues. A player like Gerrard, who like, played for Liverpool, a player who has history in world football, didn't win one.

Mourinho: I know Mkhi is quality, that’s why I bought him!

Henrikh Mkhitaryan put in a great performance against Feyenoord in Manchester United's 4-0 win on Thursday night, having been given his first start since the Manchester derby in September.

Jose Mourinho has claimed Mkhitaryan's performance came as no surprise to him and has set the Armenian with the challenge of replicating that form in the Premier League.

Wayne Rooney made European history becoming Manchester United's all-time top scorer in continental competition, bagging his 39th strike moving ahead of Ruud Van Nistelrooy's 38 with a lovely finish which set United on their way to a romping 4-0 victory.

It was the Red Devils most complete performance in weeks, combining clinical finishing with excellent attacking moves in what might have been their best display under Jose Mourinho perhaps outside of their 4-1 thrashing of Leicester City in September.

Jose Mourinho has today confirmed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will stay at Manchester United for a second season.

Zlatan's situation is simple: he has a one-plus-one year [contract] with the club and we are happy with him. He is happy, committed and loving his life as a football player at Man United.

It’s Carrick, You Know

The world of football does not tend to be your first port of call for sober reflection on life. In an industry that can so often be brash, where television companies jostle for attention and matches are billed like blockbusters, and where the players on the stage are trained to speak in hollow soundbites with which to bat away searching questions, it is rare to hear real candour.

Herrera: I know what it means to be a United player

Ander Herrera has become one of Manchester United's most important players this season and is well-loved by our fans.

The Spaniard has spoken about how much he is loving life in Manchester and how much it means to him to play for United.

I feel very appreciated by the United fans and want to give the love back to the fans that they give to me by giving everything.

Thoughts On Arsenal Game – Nobody Walks Away Happy From Old Trafford

Lightning struck a third time in a row at Old Trafford as Manchester United bungled another chance to get a win. Six points have been lost as draws with Stoke City, Burnley and now Arsenal as a terrific late header from Olivier Giroud equalised for the traveling side in the 89th minute.

Manchester United put in another display that was worthy of victory, controlling proceedings as a static and off the ball Arsenal side could never find a groove in a clash where United's midfield took a strangehold on proceedings.

Rooney: The media wants to write my obituary but I won’t let them

Following Manchester United's 1-1 draw with Arsenal, Wayne Rooney had a pop at the media for the things that have been written about him following his drinking session while on England duty.

It feels as if the media are trying to write my obituary and I won't let that happen. What's been going on is disgraceful.

Moyes still won’t admit any United mistakes

David Moyes' time as Manchester United manager was an unmitigated disaster, with the current Sunderland manager taking the champions of England to seventh in the title. We finished below Everton, his former club, despite signing their top scorer from the season before, yet Moyes has never admitted any of his failings.

Ahead of Manchester United's game against Arsenal, Jose Mourinho has been asked about his excellent record in games against Arsene Wenger, but our manager was quick to play it down.

That is not important really as I don't play against managers. It is my team that plays against the opposition and you have some records that are better than others.

Wayne Rooney has apologised for the pictures of him that clearly show that he was drunk on Sunday evening. Apparently staying up drinking red wine until 5am, with him missing England's game against Tuesday night with a "knock", the pictures were published in a national newspaper.

Rooney has been booed in recent games for England and Fletcher has insisted he deserves more respect.

No, it was not a dream.

When Zlatan Ibrahimovic came in the summer, he took Martial's shirt number, meaning the Frenchman had to give up his number nine and now wears 11.
