Jose Mourinho calls David De Gea 'best goalkeeper in world' after heroics

Wenger said: "I am not Pochettino, I am Arsene Wenger".

The Frenchman's team are now fourth in the table, and a key man for them of late has been Mesut Ozil, who is out of contract next summer and has been linked with United.

The only other goalkeeper to make so many saves in a Premier League match are Tim Krul for Newcastle United (versus the Spurs in November 2013) and Vito Mannone for Sunderland (versus Chelsea in April 2014).

After the break he continued to thwart Arsenal's best efforts, making an astonishing double save to first keep out Alexandre Lacazette's shot, then stuck out his leg to deny Alexis Sanchez from point-blank range.

"He played well, ' United boss Mourinho said of Lingard after the final whistle in London".

Mourinho added: "I told De Gea after the match, what I saw today was the best from a goalkeeper in the world".

Asked about the transfer rumours, BT Sport pundit Rio Ferdinand said: 'Since he signed for Arsenal and moved to the Premier League he's got the most assists and created the most chances out of every player.

Despite the strength of United's counter-attacking and defensive display, the brunt of the attention was fixated on Arsenal's failure to capitalise on their consistent domination and understandably, the fans collectively voiced their frustrations with their team's result, despite the strong performance they put in over the ninety minutes.

"But I have to say that my players deserve all the great words".

"I just know that Paul is frustrated and a bit disappointed with this colleague, Koscielny, with this kind of reaction".

Twitter reacts as Manchester United manage to steal away three points from the more dominant Arsenal, who will be kicking themselves after not being able to capitalise on some serious pressure from start to finish.

Right now, it doesn't look like anybody is going to catch Pep Guardiola's free-scoring Man City side.


They comfortably held on despite Paul Pogba being sent off for a risky challenge late on, punishing Arsenal for early defensive mistakes.

"It was a big blow to go 2-0 so early on - especially at home". But we have the experience to get better out of a game like that, you know.

"But, what makes you angry is that you produce that performance and in the end you have nothing to show for it".
