Twitter Reacts As David De Gea & Manchester United Frustrate Arsenal In Thriller


Antonio Valencia and Jesse Lingard punished bad Arsenal defending to put United two up in 11 minutes. I believe the game, it has to make us angry and even more determined. "I just know that Paul is frustrated and a bit disappointed with his [France] colleague [Laurent Koscielny] for his reaction, because everyone knows Paul is a clean player and it was not his intention".

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

And though City have come out of those three close encounters with maximum points, Neville thinks there is a glimmer of hope for United ahead of next Sunday's Manchester derby, live on Sky Sports Premier League.

"If it was hard, no; if it was mud, no - the pitch is absolutely attractive but I think they were a bit too much".

Pogba took the mantle in August 2016, when he returned to Old Trafford for £89million, after four years with Juventus.

"It has been a tough week for Manchester City, but a good one, though it has also been a good week for Manchester United as well, in terms of competitors chasing City", Neville said in his latest podcast.

'We played against Huddersfield and we were on the other side of it (winning 5-0 last Wednesday). Arsenal played in some period incredible attacking football - creating difficulties for us. "That's very hard to accept".

David de Gea's lightning reflexes have been beyond doubt for some time now but with Arsenal's shot-count hitting 15 on target, it was clear when all was said and done who José Mourinho's side were indebted to.

De Gea made 14 saves at the Emirates Stadium - matching the most in a Premier League game - to ensure United left North London with a vital victory in the title race.

Twitter reacts as Manchester United manage to steal away three points from the more dominant Arsenal, who will be kicking themselves after not being able to capitalise on some serious pressure from start to finish.

'We need to make sure that when we create chances in a big game we score and don't make mistakes.

"That really set us up in a place which can be really intimidating, because Arsenal are known for their fast starts".
