David De Gea: I felt unstoppable

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. "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".

"I told him after the match, what I saw today was the best from a goalkeeper in the world".

"He played well, ' United boss Mourinho said of Lingard after the final whistle in London".

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

"He is very frustrated because everybody knows that Paul is a clean player and it was not his intention at all to be close to a red card".

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 unbelievable and maybe breeds a desire to go to the floor".

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

"The grass is absolutely lovely - I think there is a desire to go onto the grass".

Pogba is likely to feature on Tuesday night when United will seek to secure their place in the Champions League knockout stages against CSKA Moscow.

Two goals from Jesse Lingard and one from Antonio Valencia earned United the victory - Mourinho's first away against a top-six club since he arrived at Old Trafford. "If you want to analyse well, watch the difference between them and us and then you will see", he said.

Arsenal sent the decibel level soaring after a lightning-quick start to the second half as Lacazette lashed home Aaron Ramsey's pass to pull a goal back, and the home side came forward in waves, forcing De Gea to pull off an astounding double save to maintain United's lead.

'We need to make sure that when we create chances in a big game we score and don't make mistakes. Son Heung-Min equalised midway through the first half but Spurs were reduced to 10 men when Davinson Sanchez was dismissed shortly after the restart.
