Mourinho hails 'world best' De Gea as United beat Arsenal

"I told him after the match, what I saw today was the best from a goalkeeper in the world". "I didn't see the tackle", Mourinho said.

De Gea made 14 saves - several of them exceptional - as Arsenal threw everything at United after conceding twice in the opening 11 minutes in a sizzling clash at the Emirates Stadium.

But Lingard's second goal in the 63rd minute eventually made the game safe for the visitors before United midfielder Paul Pogba was shown a straight red card for a studs-up challenge on Hector Bellerin. "If I was in the stands or at home I would have been sad for the game to finish".

Goals from Jesse Lingard (2) and Antonio Valencia helped the Red Devils to victory despite the Gunners reducing the deficit to 2-1 just after half-time through Alexandre Lacazette. "I leave to you (to decide)", he said, when asked for his thoughts. Arsenal played in some period wonderful attacking football - creating difficulties for us.

There was no hiding Mourinho's joy, however, at an impressive all-round United display. I loved the way my team played and fought.

David De Gea was the undoubted star of the show, producing a masterclass between the sticks as he repelled attack after attack from the Gunners.

However, there have been suggestions Man United could appeal the decision and the respective three-game ban in an attempt to have Pogba back in the frame for City.

Lukaku played a cute reverse pass into the area for Martial, who produced a superb, rubber-ankled flick round the corner, allowing Lingard to run clear, clipping a first-time shot in off the far post to make it to 2-0 for Manchester United. We were too on the edge mentally maybe - you can not be in a game like that.

"Big matches need goalkeepers to be there for you, when the team needs them, but I think [from] all of our players, the effort was magnificent".
