De Gea 'best in world' as United beat Arsenal 3-1

Paul Pogba was spotted hugging Mesut Ozil in the Emirates tunnel in the moments leading up to Manchester United's 3-1 victory over Arsenal.

Koscielny responded to the foul by approaching referee Andre Marriner and appearing to call for Pogba's dismissal.

"I just know that Paul is frustrated".

"You know - if you are my friends, don't ask me the question, because you know I get into problems". "But I saved that ball and after that, I think he did a really good job".

"If it's not a penalty, it's not a penalty".

Alan Pardew picked up a point in his first game in charge of West Brom as they drew 0-0 against his former club Crystal Palace.

"We probably defended better after Paul was sent off", he said.

'We had a spell where we had four shots and everything went in, this time it was the opposite'.

"We are second in the table. I'm happy but there is no message".

I think they were both very tough games away from home so we now have confidence to play the last Champions League group game and after that, the derby.

"There were incredible individuals performances and collectively we were very strong".

While Pogba's red card in north London did not prove costly, it was the heroics of David de Gea which allowed United to collect all three points.

"He made fantastic saves", Mourinho said. "I told De Gea after the match, what I saw today was the best from a goalkeeper in the world". "But you can not make the mistakes we made at the beginning".

Even so, Wenger acknowledged Arsenal had only themselves to blame for a loss that effectively ended their title bid.

Most remarkable of all was a double De Gea save to deny Alexandre Lacazette and Alexis Sanchez with the score at 2-1 early in the second half.

"You have to dictate from the start and show strength in duels from the back", Wenger said. "I thought the lads dug deep, especially in the first half when we were under pressure", added Lingard.

"We have produced an excellent performance but have conceded three goals and had at least 10 chances and were not efficient enough in the box, that is the reality".
