Nigeria international, Alex Iwobi, was an unused substitute as Arsenal forced Manchester United to a 1-1 draw on Saturday in an English Premier League duel.

The early kickoff at Old Trafford was highly anticipated but there was nothing to separate both teams at the end of 90 minutes.

Though he would have hoped for more in Saturday’s game, Jose Mourinho remains unbeaten in 14 competitive league and cup matches against Arsene Wenger.

It was an Olivier Giroud late goal that saved the day for the Gunners who had earlier fell behind to a wonderful strike from Juan Mata.

United produced a perfect teamwork to go in front as Paul Pogba and Ander Herrera combined to play in Juan Mata, and the little Spaniard made no mistake with a neat finish from 12yards.

Arsene Wenger reacted to that goal by throwing on Olivier Giroud for Mohamed Elneny as the Gunners chased the game.

The Frenchman rescued a point as he climbed highest to head home a cross from fellow substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the closing stages of the game to end it 1-1.

With the solitary point, Arsenal stay in third position on the log while United are 6th.
