Arsenal players loving the beauty of the grass, says Mourinho

Arsenal players loving the beauty of the grass, says Mourinho

Anthony Martial flicked on to Lingard in the area and the latter's effort careened in off a post. Whether it was the change or the fact that they were 2-0 down, Arsenal responded by dominating the visitors from there on.

The result left United in second place behind Manchester City before both teams meet next week.

By the half-hour mark, Arsenal were by far the dominant side and it was only due to the brilliance of de Gea in goal and Nemanja Matic around the penalty box that United somehow survived a Gunners onslaught till half-time.

But it was De Gea who took the plaudits after he made some magnificent saves - with 14 in total - and was beaten only by a close-range shot from Alexandre Lacazette.

Manchester United were taking on an Arsenal side following 13 successive Premier League victories at The Emirates to give Arsene Wenger's side confidence ahead of the visit of their bitter rivals.

No save data exists prior to the 2003-04 campaign, but De Gea's tally is the joint best since Opta began collecting save data. The midfielder shrugged off his compatriot's Koscielny's challenge on the wing to square it for Lingard to stroke home into an empty net in the 63rd minute.

But it was the way that Pogba sarcastically applauded referee Andre Marriner's decision which could land him in more hot water. The United resistance prompted the Frenchman to state De Gea was "man of the match by a clear mile". He was however, full of praise for his goal keeper David De Gea who pulled off a string of spectacular saves to keep United in front and in the hunt for the Premier League title.

Arsenal now sit in fifth place and are 12 points adrift of leaders Manchester City, who have a game-in-hand over the Gunners. "It was a brilliant performance from the team, defensively and on the counter attack we killed them, so we're really happy with the three points".
