"There's no weak games, there's no chance to relax and most of all for us because we need to get points and to climb up the table".
The 25-year-old established himself as a key player for club and country last season as Jose Mourinho's men finished Premier League and FA Cup runners-up, before helping England reach the World Cup semi-finals.
United came into the match against Arsenal with no win in three Premier League matches, while their opponents were unbeaten in 19; and while Darmian said he and his teammates had targeted a win beforehand, they were ultimately satisfied with a draw, having twice come from behind.
"We are improving and we are fighting to get results and I think we are getting and better", said Dalot, who signed from Porto in the summer. It was an enjoyable summer and a good season for me on a personal level last season.
"That's the main thing".
"A lot of games are coming and you have to be ready".
"Now we have to think game by game and try to win a lot of matches because this period is very important", Darmian added.
Not least, the collective spirit shown by the players after controversial midfielder Paul Pogba was left on the bench for most of the game.
"And as footballers we just enjoy our football and want to win games".
"We knew that Arsenal like to press and they like to nip at things and bite at things, so we had to put them on the back foot straightaway", Lingard said. Every day we are working with the movies and with tactical moments on the pitch before the matches, we are repeating that. "But today was a tough game".
