Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has heaped praises on the attacking trio of Jesse Lingard, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford after their draw with Arsenal.
The Red Devils started the game with a back three but Lingard played at the top of a three-man midfield behind Martial and Rashford, who led the team’s attack.
Martial scored United’s first goal to put the game at 1-1 after Shkodran Mustafi gave Arsenal the lead. Lingard also found himself on the scoresheet after his goal ensured a point for United following an own-goal by Marcos Rojo.
“They played well,” Mourinho said, according to Manchester Evening News.
“They gave good dynamic, good intensity, good movement, and we need that, we needed that happiness.”
“Especially in moments where we are not very happy with the result we need happiness on the pitch, we need people that gives that good feeling and the three young guys up front, all of them quite light, but alive, agile, creative, they were good.”
“Midfield was strong, Herrera pressed so, so well and so, so hard and the people behind was always in control.”
