Manchester United defender Phil Jones has admitted that the club's 1-1 draw with Arsenal at the weekend felt like a defeat, but insisted that there is "no need to panic yet" over the Red Devils' indifferent run of form.
Substitute Olivier Giroud's 89th minute header cancelled out Juan Mata's opener and ensured that Arsenal's unbeaten run since the opening day of the season continued.
The Gunners were subdued as an attacking force for much of the encounter at Old Trafford and did not have an effort on target until Giroud rose at the far post to head in Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's cross.
The result left United stuck in sixth place on the Premier League table with just two wins from their last nine league matches.
"It feels like we have been slapped 6-0. We completely dominated the game from start to finish," Jones told United's official website.
"I thought we defended well, created chances and it was just one of those things. They got one chance and scored. We have to pick ourselves up, we are pleased with the performance but not with the result.
"There is no need to panic yet. We have been playing well and creating chances, it is just that bit of luck that we need and hopefully it will come soon."
United are nine points behind league leaders Chelsea and are on a three-match winless run at Old Trafford that also includes draws with Stoke City and Burnley.
Jones added: "It is crazy. If we had won then we would have been three points behind Arsenal.
"Arsenal have had a world class season and we are supposed to have had an average season. That is just the way the Premier League works. But we are pleased with the performance. We created chances and probably should have scored more."
United's next assignment sees them hosting Feyenoord in the Europa League at Old Trafford on 24 November.
