Manchester United win Arsenal thriller despite Paul Pogba sending off

Manchester United win Arsenal thriller despite Paul Pogba sending off

United survived a late scare to beat Watford 4-2 at Vicarage Road on Tuesday to cement second place, though Mourinho's men nearly threw away the win after coasting into a three-goal lead against the Hornets.

Arsenal will wonder quite how they ended up with nothing from a pulsating encounter, albeit their problems were all of their own making when a side who had previously only conceded four league goals at home in the season gifted their opponents a 2-0 lead inside 11 minutes.

Seven minutes later, United doubled their lead as Romelu Lukaku and Anthony Martial combined to set up Jesse Lingard who fired past Cech from close range.

Wenger was proud of the attacking endeavour of his players, but was left angry that their efforts were in vain because of a lack of early concentration.

"The plan was when they have to the ball we all have to defend, starting with the attacking players".

New Everton manager Sam Allardyce watched his side beat Huddersfield 2-0 and Stoke came from behind to beat Swansea 2-1 while West Brom, under new boss Alan Pardew, drew 0-0 against Crystal Palace. We had enough chances. We were too on the edge mentally maybe - you can not be in a game like that.




"I think there is a desire to go for the grass!"

"I loved the way my team played and fought", said Mourinho". When you play at home, that can not happen. But most of you doing the quiz won't remember football before 1992, so that's why we're sticking with the Premier League era. "But you can not make the mistakes we made at the beginning".

As the match lost some of its high-octane momentum, referee Andre Marriner sent off Paul Pogba for a studs-up tackle on Hector Bellerin to change the balance of the contest, but Arsenal could not take advantage.

David De Gea's performance was the "best from a goalkeeper in the world" according to Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho after his side's thrilling 3-1 win at Arsenal. The United resistance prompted the Frenchman to state De Gea was "man of the match by a clear mile".

Arsenal had a late penalty shout ignored when Matteo Darmian clipped Danny Welbeck, but Wenger suggested it was a decision that was never likely to go their way.

"Just like what is happening with us because every time we are having important players that get injured and missing important games".
