Winners & 3 Losers From Arsenal vs Manchester United

Winners & 3 Losers From Arsenal vs Manchester United

David De Gea produced heroics between the sticks against Arsenal over the weekend in the Premier League.

"I told him after the match - what I saw today was the best goalkeeper in the world", the Man United boss told BT Sport.

De Gea made some classically excellent dives and parries, stretches to tip shots over the crossbar, but his brilliance extended to all four limbs.

After the break he continued to thwart Arsenal's best efforts, making an astonishing double save to first keep out Alexandre Lacazette's shot, then stuck out his leg to deny Alexis Sanchez from point-blank range.

Manchester United's decision to start with two strikers proved crucial in their win over Arsenal, according to defender Chris Smalling.

Given Paul Pogba's second-half sending off, Matic took on a role of enhanced importance to help see out three points as the Serbian made a clearance off the line.

Afterwards, Mourinho hailed De Gea as 'the best goalkeeper in the world, ' but has now cheekily retracted his claim, suggesting whoever he picks is the top player. The French forward had been ruled out of the game by Arsene Wenger earlier in the week, only to start and score Arsenal's only goal. This particular game, however, was the best since those days of old.

"I loved the way my team played and fought", he said.

"I don't know", he said.

"We played well but there is nothing more frustrating than when you have that quality of performance and nothing to show for it at the end".

United didn't really deserve to win, in the sense people mean when they say teams that impose their will on their opponent by doing lots of good things while preventing the opposition from doing good things "deserve" to win, but neither really did Arsenal. The attitude was impeccable until the end.

"They went after Arsenal straight away and put them under pressure, wanting to get behind and give them no time on the ball".
