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

David De Gea said he felt unstoppable after playing a starring role in Manchester United's thrilling 3-1 victory over Arsenal on Saturday evening. "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". However, Mourinho thinks his team were hard done by, citing a challenge by Laurent Koscielny on Romelu Lukaku which only drew a yellow card.

Jose Mourinho insists he is "not surprised" Pep Guardiola was not punished for encroaching on the pitch on Wednesday - as the Manchester United boss was earlier this season.

"I don't know if you've watched many top-level shots, but when you have 33 shots on goal in a game of that stature, it means our dominance was top class".

Speaking after the game, which saw their 12-game home unbeaten run end, Wenger said he was "angry and disappointed".

There was controversy to be found, of course, with Arsenal having a pretty reasonable penalty shout denied in the game's later stages but perhaps the biggest scandal on the night was the sending off of United's Paul Pogba, who - as a result of his misdemeanour - will miss out on his side's crucial derby matchup with Manchester City next time around.

"He is very frustrated because everybody knows that Paul is a clean player and it was not his intention, not at all, to be close to a red card". "So people don't think about me, they don't care about me".

Before welcoming City to Old Trafford, United have a midweek Champions League fixture to contend with.

The England midfielder struck United's second after 11 minutes and a second-half third as Arsenal were pushing for an equaliser. "But you can not make the mistakes we made at the beginning".

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

"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 French ace, 24, won both the League Cup and Europa League during his first season back in the English game, but believes that analysis was distorted because of his price tag.
