"I loved the way my team played and fought".

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

The Frenchman deservedly received a straight red card and will miss three games, including next week's derby against City. "So people don't think about me, they don't care about me".

"I think it was a fantastic game", Mourinho, whose United sides had managed only one goal in their previous seven aways to Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea, told reporters.

"You would argue, given what happened at Arsenal on Saturday, that United do have that counter-attack ability with Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Romelu Lukaku and Jesse Lingard, and that they do have the ability to score from set-pieces, and they are a better defensive unit than Southampton or West Ham".

'He's deceptively quick and if you can get that extra [bit of work rate] out of him I'd take him on a free transfer all day long. But we have the experience to get better out of a game like that, you know. I always learned playing with my friends.

"We played well but there is nothing more frustrating when you have that quality of performance and nothing to show for it at the end". And we put ourselves in a very hard position.

After that David De Gea kept them at bay with a goalkeeping masterclass which included a Premier League record-equalling 14 saves, until Lacazette gave them hope.

While his "studs up" tackle on Bellerin in the 75th minute was a poor one, Mourinho felt some of the Arsenal players had hounded referee Andre Marriner to send Pogba off.

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

"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 are second and are chasing the top of the table. They deserved three points".

"You need the keeper to be there for you when the team needs", added Mourinho. And I believe that at the back we did not start well, at all.
