Matic played his part from the start as the Red Devils drew 2-2 with the Gunners on Wednesday.
A David de Gea blunder saw Shkodran Mustafi open the scoring for Unai Emery’s side before Anthony Martial replied soon after.
And it was a similar story in the second half when Marcos Rojo’s own goal was instantly cancelled out by Jesse Lingard.
And while Matic says it’s clear that confidence isn’t high at the moment, he was proud of the “fight” shown by his team.
“Everyone knows the confidence is not high, but this is the fight that we have to show”
“Both teams attacked. It was a great game for the supporters but I thought we deserved a point,” Matic told BT Sport.
“Everyone knows the confidence is not high, but this is the fight that we have to show.
“Everyone is ready to play wherever the manager asks.”
While Matic thought his side deserved a point from the contest, defender Chris Smalling felt they were unlucky not to find a winner on the night.
“All of us know we are in a tough patch of form and everyone is giving everything to help us through,” he said.
“Everyone is digging in. We were on the front foot and pressing them because we know they like to play and I thought we were unlucky not to get the third goal.”
The result stretched Arsenal’s unbeaten run in all competitions to 20 matches while United now find themselves nine points away from fourth spot.
And they are now 19 points behind rivals Manchester City and 17 points behind Liverpool.
After the game though, Jose Mourinho praised his players for their performance.
“We scored four goals and drew 2-2! As always we made mistakes and we paid for the mistakes,” he said.
“Today was more the same, but with great spirit and people ready to have a go and fight hard, it was a credit to the team.”
