It wasn’t a classic United performance but they showed an ability to grind out a point from their trip to the Emirates and fans were delighted.

@SUFC_memories said on twitter: “Fantastic for us to grind out a point this afternoon when we weren’t nearly at our free-flowing best. A very scrappy game overall, but a moment of class from Flecky has earnt us a well deserved point. On to Tuesday!”

@tyronej1984 posted: “16 points from 12 away matches including trips to Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Spurs and Arsenal is nothing short of brilliant. What a team”

Blades_Mad said: “A fair result in the end. A game that lacked quality in the final third of the pitch from both teams, but we battled hard and a point at Arsenal is not to be sniffed at. Four points we've took off the Gunners! Not bad, eh?!”

@tomred666 joked: “Very disappointing to drop 2 points in our quest for the Champions League we need to start putting these mid table sides away... never mind 3 easy points on the way Tuesday”

@Jhill_90 said: “Wilder just gets better and better. Losing away at Arsenal and not playing well, changes formation, throws 3 strikers on and it changes the game completely. What a manager we have”

@brownblade said: “Not a great game (we missed McGoldrick so much), but that's an epic equaliser! #twitterblades Great to gain points from matches like that”

@TravelingBlade said: “Brilliant result but I think we missed McGoldrick today. There were times when we lacked attacking cohesion and creativity; two things that Didzy personifies. Fortunately Fleck and Norwood stuck at it and created the spark we needed”

@unitedite added: “I honestly thought we would go on to win it when we equalised and it just didn't quite fall for us. When McBurnie chested it down I thought it was happening”

@Johnstone_87 concluded: “If we get a goalscorer this transfer window we finish in Europe”
