Pogba reveals what he hates about Jose Mourinho's training sessions

The Portuguese's team beat the Gunners 3-1 in a classic match at the Emirates, with Jesse Lingard (2) and Antonio Valencia picking up the goals.

Wenger said: "I am not Pochettino, I am Arsene Wenger".

That they didn't was a result of bad first 10 minutes, during which two defensive errors led to United goals.

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

Arsenal had a few more chances after conceding the third, but after Pogba was sent off in the 74th minute for a stamp on Hector Bellerin, United finally started defending with some objective, and limited the Gunners to half chances to see out the result. Amazing, phenomenal, fantastic. They deserved three points.

'I am here to fight as long as I can, as long as mathematically it's possible you have to fight, you cannot give any other message out'. I think they were both very tough games away from home so we now have confidence to play the last Champions League group game and after that, the derby. We were too on the edge mentally maybe - you can not be in a game like that.

"There were incredible individuals performances and collectively we were very strong".

But if anyone can, it's probably Man United, who now lead the rest of the Premier League pack and sit eight points behind their "noisy neighbours".


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. Martial turned and flicked the ball in one breathtaking movement back to Lingard, who finished first-time off the post.

In a post-match huddle which also included Jose Mourinho, Thierry Henry and William Gallas, he gestured that it may have been Bellerin's unusual attempt to tackle that was to blame.

Wright told BBC Radio 5 Live: "Ozil to Man United on a free is a shoe-in".

"I told him after the match what I saw today was the best goalkeeper in the world", Mourinho told BT Sport.

Wenger refused to follow Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino's lead and rule his team out of the Premier League title race even though they are fifteen points behind leaders Manchester City.

"We are second and are chasing the top of the table".

"Despite being 2-0 down we should have come back - we had enough chances", said Wenger, whose side are now fifth.
