Marcus Rashford in talks with Manchester United over new contract

Marcus Rashford in talks with Manchester United over new contract

Manchester United's Ashley Young has called for greater protection for players after his team's 2-0 English Premier League loss at Arsenal was disrupted by a fan running onto the pitch and shoving his teammate Chris Smalling.

"Our goalkeeper is very important and sometimes the goalkeeper can save us, and today I'm very proud of his work". If they win their game in hand (against Brighton) they will be equal on points with us as well!

"I don't want that", Emery said when asked about the pitch invasion.

They may also lose Callum Hudson-Odoi, and nobody knows what the future holds with regards to the vacant technical director position, a possible vacancy in the manager's seat should things go south and, most importantly, Roman Abramovich's inability to return to Britain. "They gave all they could against the best team at this moment".

"We have won games we have not deserved to win, and today we lost a game we did not deserve to lose".

United's visit Wolves for an all-Premier League FA Cup quarter-final on Saturday night is followed by a 10-day window for Euro 2020 qualifiers and worldwide friendlies, and United want to pin things down in time to get the deal done.

Meanwhile the United manager said: " You have to be disappointed with the result but the performance was good. We created five big chances, hit the woodwork twice.

The Manchester United number one seemed to be completely bamboozled by a speculative looking effort from Granit Xhaka, moving to the left before helplessly watching the ball sail into the right side of his goal. We have two competitions now.

"In terms of what you can control we should not be too disappointed".

Initially, the plan was to leave the decision on Mourinho's full-time successor until the end of the season but United are now ready to bring it forward so they can get a headstart on planning for next season.

With the win, Arsenal have moved two points clear of the chasing pack for fourth place.
