De Gea 'best in world' as United beat Arsenal 3-1

Jose Mourinho hails Manchester United players for ‘giving everything’ against Arsenal

Jose Mourinho hails Manchester United players for ‘giving everything’ against Arsenal

Defender Chris Smalling added: "You come out before a game saying you need to get off to a good start, but that's the best start I think we've ever had".

Wenger's side fired 33 shots at goal, with 15 finding the target.

De Gea saved twice in quick succession from Hector Bellerin and Sead Kolasinac shortly before halftime and somehow kept out United striker Romelu Lukaku's miskick when trying to clear from a corner.

The only other goalkeeper to make so many saves in a Premier League match are Tim Krul for Newcastle United (versus the Spurs in November 2013) and Vito Mannone for Sunderland (versus Chelsea in April 2014).

Most remarkable of all was a double De Gea save to deny Alexandre Lacazette and Alexis Sanchez with the score at 2-1 early in the second half.

And the 24-year-old enjoyed a successful first season back at Old Trafford as United tasted success in the Community Shield, EFL Cup and the Europa League.

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

"I didn't see the red card", Mourinho said. Arsenal played in some period wonderful attacking football - creating difficulties for us.

It was down to the Tide and the Buckeyes (11-2) for the final spot and the committee ultimately went with Nick Saban's squad. Favoring a one-loss team without any substantial wins costs the fans more than it even costs the Buckeyes in the long term.

"But I have to say that my players deserve all the great words - I don't know so many more in English".

"The Neymar deal is special for me because it means journalists are not looking at the price any more".

"All three played a certain way and got joy with certain things - counter-attack has been a problem for City this week, set-pieces and corners have been a problem this week, deep and compact defences have also been a problem this week in terms of breaking them down".

His rivalries with Guardiola - whose side, now eight points clear of United at the top of the Premier League, United play at Old Trafford on December 10 - and Gunners boss Arsene Wenger are both well documented.

They comfortably held on despite Paul Pogba being sent off for a unsafe challenge late on, punishing Arsenal for early defensive mistakes.

"We have produced an excellent performance but have conceded three goals and had at least 10 chances and were not efficient enough in the box, that is the reality". The attitude was impeccable until the end.

"You can not give any other message out".
