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

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.

"If it was hard, no; if it was mud, no - the pitch is absolutely attractive but I think they were a bit too much".

Man United's mercurial talisman Paul Pogba may have strayed into that unsafe territory this weekend when speaking to BBC Football Focus about City's players.

Manager Arsene Wenger said a poor start sabotaged Arsenal's hopes of extending a 12-match home winning run in the Premier League as they went down 3-1 to Manchester United on Saturday.

There was controversy to be found, of course, with Arsenal having a pretty reasonable penalty shout denied in the game's later stages but perhaps the biggest scandal on the night was the sending off of United's Paul Pogba, who - as a result of his misdemeanour - will miss out on his side's crucial derby matchup with Manchester City next time around.

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.

Danny Welbeck and Alexandre Lacazette, appealed in vain for penalties and, with his tongue firmly in his cheek, Mourinho said: "I know the pitch is incredible and maybe breeds a desire to go to the floor".

"We are second and are chasing the top of the table".

The last meeting between the pair was United's visit to the Emirates Stadium in May, when Wenger secured his first league win over Mourinho at the 13th attempt, a 2-0 victory.

"I didn't see the tackle", Mourinho said. "What I saw was the best goalkeeper in the world".

"Despite being 2-0 down we should have come back - we had enough chances", said Wenger, whose side are now fifth.

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

Arsenal got back into the match in the 49th when United defender Marcos Rojo tried and failed to play Alexandre Lacazette offside.

Goals from Antonio Valencia and two from Jesse Lingard either side of Lacazette's strike moved second-placed United to within five points of their city rivals.

"But I'm angry and disappointed because we had nothing to show for it". We were not decisive enough.
