Jose Mourinho Says Arsenal Players 'Love The Grass' In Reference To Playacting

Arsenal eventually ended the game with 32 shots with the expected goal metric suggesting that the Gunners could have eventually won 5-2.

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

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

The Spaniard made 14 saves, equalling the record since statisticians Opta began collecting data. However, his red card in 74 minute was foolish and unnecessary.

Man United's game must improve against bigger sides.

"I think the quality of our performance was good but we were not decisive enough".

"We didn't take our chances and they capitalised on that and made it three, which basically killed the game". United proved to be deadly on the counter-attack, but possibly the most important match of the Premier League season demands better.

It was an unfortunate end to another sterling display from the 24-year-old, who had assisted two of United's three goals on Saturday evening as his impressive form this season continued.

Ashley Young 7/10- Whilst Young's performance wasn't as spectacular as the one he put in away from home against Watford, he was still very effective both going forward and dealing with the threat coming from Arsenal's right flank, reliable as ever.

United will be hoping Manchester City falter in their pursuit of the Premier League title when they play West Ham United on Sunday, live on Sky Sports Premier League, as Pep Guardiola's side look to return their lead at the top of the table to eight points.

Their defence was very poor, which was epitomized by Man United's first and third goal, while individual mistake of Shkodran Mustafi meant the Reds were in for a great game.
