A Kieran Gibbs own goal and a late effort from skipper Wayne Rooney handed United their first victory on the road in over seven months, with Arsenal only able to manage a consolation through substitute Olivier Giroud.

The Dutch tactician said : “First I hope the players are coming back from injuries because it’s unbelievably difficult to create the consistency in the team – because I have to change my line-up every week,”.

“Maybe you don’t know but I am a coach who always has the same line-up, maybe I change one or two. But not constantly so many players.

“I have also changed the formation. It is not always good to create optimism in the team.

“Shaw has to play. Then he is coming back from the international break with the English national team and he is not fit enough. We make him fit.

“Then he is injured with another injury. Ankle. You have seen that. Then I have to give Young (a game) but Young is not fit enough to play 90 minutes.

“I think the players have done fantastic. Blackett, McNair and Luke Shaw – how old are they? You play against a top team like Arsenal and they are always changing position, so you need a lot of communication. I think that is pretty good. But I was not pleased.”
