The Arsenal winger saw his side lose 2-0 to United in pre-season with individual errors proving costly on the night

Bukayo Saka insists Arsenal ‘must learn’ from their mistakes after losing 2-0 to Manchester United.

Jadon Sancho took advantage of a huge error from Gabriel to fire United ahead. Bruno Fernandes’ strike then squirmed past Aaron Ramsdale, who will feel he should’ve done better, to make it two.

Arsenal couldn’t find a route back into the match as United saw out the victory and recorded another clean sheet in pre-season. Erik ten Hag’s men are yet to concede after beating Leeds United, Lyon and now the Gunners to nil.

After the match, Saka admitted Arsenal can’t afford to gift goals away to a team of United’s calibre and insisted his side must improve.

“It’s obviously tough to take, whether it’s a friendly or not against United,” Saka said. “We’ll learn from it and you can’t really give two goals away like that against a team like this because then it’s really hard to come back. We just need to learn from it.

“Physically we want to get to a level that we were at last season and then go to another level and keep increasing that. Tactically we need to integrate everyone.

“We need to understand our game plan and how we play and keep progressing in each game so that when we come to the first game we’re ready.”
