By AFPMore by this AuthorMANCHESTERJose Mourinho accused his Manchester United players of shooting themselves in the foot as he saw his under-strength team gift Arsenal two goals in a 2-2 draw that extended their winless Premier League run to four games. United also trail Chelsea and Arsenal, who are now unbeaten in 20 games, by eight points in the battle for a place in the top four. That dramatic pattern would be repeated after 68 minutes when Arsenal regained a lead they could only hold, on this occasion, for 74 seconds. But there could be no faulting United's response as Arsenal panicked at a long ball punted forward, almost directly from kick-off. "I am proud of my players and the second half gives us confidence," said Arsenal manager Unai Emery.
