It was a clever goal, but the next two hosts came from individual mistakes. First Nuno Tavares and Emile Smith Rowe lost the ball, while Odegaard knocked down Fred for a penalty. On both occasions, Cristiano Ronaldo made Arsenal pay.
The mistakes made the defeat frustrating for Arsenal and Arteta admitted that he and his team had no one to blame but themselves.
“It’s like that. If you concede three goals at Old Trafford it is difficult to get a result. I was disappointed with the goals we conceded,” said Arteta.
“We’ve come a long way since the game at Anfield. We were able to maintain higher periods for longer.
“When we were in control, we had a better structure and we created chances. When it was 2-2 we had to build momentum to get the win.
“There were a lot of things I liked about the game. I liked the behavior of individuals. When you score two goals at Old Trafford you expect to get something out of the game and that’s a regret, but it’s our fault.
“When you see the game you would say we deserve more, but that’s what happens against this quality of opponent. “
