Manchester United forward, Marcus Rashford has taken to social media to post a heartwarming message after the team's painful defeat at the Emirates Stadium.
United, who recently dropped points during their mid-week trip to Crystal Palace, were hoping to secure maximum points when they took on the Gunners on Sunday evening, January 22.

The Red Devils looked set to secure at least one point in north London, if not for Eddie Nketiah, who cancelled out Rashford's opener to score at stoppage time.

Marcus Rashford's message
Rashford has now taken to social media to share his feelings in the wake of United's loss at Arsenal.
In a post shared on his Twitter feed, the Man United attacker admitted he was heartbroken with the result, but urged his teammates to keep moving forward.
"Never easy to lose a game like that at the last minute but we go again," he tweeted. "We're heading in the right direction and need to remain positive."
Was Saka mocking Rashford?
Sports Brief has also reported that fans were sharply divided on an Arsenal star's choice of celebration after scoring a stunner against Man United.
Bukayo Saka scored the second goal to give the Gunners the lead, after Nketiah had cancelled out Rashford's beautiful opener.
The 21-year-old was allowed to weave his way to the edge of the penalty area, before unleashing a ferocious shot which flew past a scampering David de Gea.
Saka then dashed towards the corner flag and pointed to his temple, in similar fashion to the style of celebration Rashford has adopted since the World Cup break.
