  • Manchester United beat Arsenal 3-1 to keep heat on City

De Gea played down his role, saying it was simply a "good game for me" before focusing on the "confidence" United can take into next week's Manchester derby at Old Trafford. "I just know that Paul is frustrated and a bit disappointed with his [France] colleague [Laurent Koscielny] for his reaction, because everyone knows Paul is a clean player and it was not his intention".

"I don't think anybody thought it was the wrong decision, but psychologically it sends a message to the fans, to us, and to the players that they're already thinking about a bigger fish to fry next week".

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

'We played against Huddersfield and we were on the other side of it (winning 5-0 last Wednesday).

While Mourinho was coy about the derby, he was effusive in his praise of his players after they won at the Emirates for the first time since 2014, ending their long run of futility in away league games against top-six opponents. Arsenal played in some period fantastic attacking football - creating difficulties for us. And we put ourselves in a very hard position.

United were indebted to David De Gea for a superb display, the Spaniard making 14 saves, the joint most by a goalkeeper in the Premier League era.

This summer he saw Neymar smash the world transfer record with his move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain.

"De Gea was man of the match by a clear mile", Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said.

"All three played a certain way and got joy with certain things - counter-attack has been a problem for City this week, set-pieces and corners have been a problem this week, deep and compact defences have also been a problem this week in terms of breaking them down".

It was off a bad giveaway, and Arsenal had a second one moments later.

The England midfielder struck United's second after 11 minutes and a second-half third as Arsenal were pushing for an equaliser.

"You have to dictate from the start and show strength in duels from the back", Wenger said. And I believe that at the back we did not start well, at all.

"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".
