Jose Mourinho calls David De Gea 'best goalkeeper in world' after heroics

Jose Mourinho calls David De Gea 'best goalkeeper in world' after heroics

Gary Neville posted a simple tweet to celebrate Paul Pogba's commanding performance in Manchester United's 3-1 win at Arsenal on Saturday evening.

The Frenchman's team are now fourth in the table, and a key man for them of late has been Mesut Ozil, who is out of contract next summer and has been linked with United. When asked which was his favourite from a fine string of stops, he acknowledged: "Probably the double save when we were winning 2-1 [in the second half]".

He said "Some day I hope City are going to slip and I hope, and I know that it's bad to say things like that, but I hope for us that some very important players get injured".

The keeper joked: "Yes, he almost scored an own goal!"

"I think the quality of our performance was good".

Man United's mercurial talisman Paul Pogba may have strayed into that risky territory this weekend when speaking to BBC Football Focus about City's players. De Gea felt his team were successfully solid after the midfielder's dismissal.

"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.

Arsenal 1-3 Manchester United: 5 Talking Points

"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.

"Of course, they can say they had chances but we fought and we had a great goalkeeper too and I think we deserved it".

The crucial win in North London meant United have recorded four successive league wins for the first time this season - including two impressive victories on the road in the space of five days, after Tuesday's 4-2 success at Watford.

But Arsenal are three points closer to the runaway Premier League leaders - and Wenger reckons this crushing defeat will just make his side even more determined to catch up.

The Spanish stopper added: "We're really happy".

"I don't think anybody thought it was the wrong decision, but psychologically it sends a message to the fans, to us, and to the players that they're already thinking about a bigger fish to fry next week".
