Manchester United played out a goalless draw with Arsenal at Emirates Stadium, missing the chance to increase the pressure on Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Two good chances came the way of United striker Edinson Cavani late on but Arsenal fully deserved their point on a bitterly cold night in north London.

The Gunners went closest when Alexandre Lacazette’s clipped free-kick hit the bar after the break while United keeper David de Gea saved well from Emile Smith Rowe and Nicolas Pepe also threatened to break the deadlock.

De Gea’s counterpart Bernd Leno also made a difference with an athletic fingertip save from Fred in the first half.

United came within inches of winning it in the closing stages when Cavani saw a close-range effort deflected wide off Leno and the Uruguay striker then hooked a superb cross from Aaron Wan-Bissaka just wide when he looked certain to score.

Martin Odegaard, signed on loan from Real Madrid was handed a late debut by Arsenal, but he had little impact and the stalemate leaves United three points behind Manchester City having played a game more.
