Paul Pogba sees red over Arsenal's Laurent Koscielny reaction to dismissal

Paul Pogba sees red over Arsenal's Laurent Koscielny reaction to dismissal

Until Pogba's dismissal, everything had looked ideal for United, for whom David De Gea was outstanding and was beaten only by Alexandre Lacazette just after the interval.

"I think we produced excellent quality and were not decisive enough, neither in our box nor in their box".

Jose Mourinho revealed Paul Pogba was furious with Arsenal's Laurent Koscielny for his role in the red card that rules the Manchester United midfielder out of next weekend's summit meeting with Manchester City.

He said the performance had been so impressive that he could not think of enough superlatives, adding: "I think it was a phenomenal game. It was two very good teams going through different moments of the game", he said.

But Arsenal are three points closer to the runaway Premier League leaders - and Wenger reckons this crushing defeat will just make his side even more determined to catch up.

"We are second in the table".

Despite the strength of United's counter-attacking and defensive display, the brunt of the attention was fixated on Arsenal's failure to capitalise on their consistent domination and understandably, the fans collectively voiced their frustrations with their team's result, despite the strong performance they put in over the ninety minutes. "What I saw was the best goalkeeper in the world".

"He made fantastic saves", Mourinho said.

"Last night I watched Napoli v Juventus on TV and we watched a top-class referee".

Seventy-five percent possession for Arsenal, and 33 shots tell some of that story, yet they lost thanks to wasted chances, the extraordinary goalkeeping of David de Gea and the excellence with which United were able to execute their breakaways.

Before this week, Jesse Lingard's only goals for Manchester United this season had come in the Carabao Cup, against Burton Albion and Swansea City, in games that have already been largely forgotten.

The Portuguese's team beat the Gunners 3-1 in a classic match at the Emirates, with Jesse Lingard (2) and Antonio Valencia picking up the goals.

"You have to dictate from the start and show strength in duels from the back", Wenger said.

"We didn't start well at all at the back but overall our performance was, for patches, absolutely brilliant", he told BBC Sport.
