Watch match highlights of Arsenal 1-3 Manchester United”

The result left United in second place behind Manchester City before both teams meet next week. Alexandre Lacazette netted when United's defence stood still, but De Gea made a string of fine saves to deny the Gunners.

It was a pulsating contest from start to finish at Emirates Stadium, with a glut of shots on goal, wonderful goalkeeping, a sending off, and textbook counterattacks.

But the hosts largely dominated the fixture, totalling 33 shots at goal and enjoying 75 per cent possession against Jose Mourinho's men.

"In my case, it's different because I want to win".

By the half-hour mark, Arsenal were by far the dominant side and it was only due to the brilliance of de Gea in goal and Nemanja Matic around the penalty box that United somehow survived a Gunners onslaught till half-time.

Anthony Martial flicked on to Lingard in the area and the latter's effort careened in off a post.

For Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, who has had an often fractious relationship with Mourinho, there was pride in the way his side recovered from a horror start but ultimately a sense of frustration at their failure to take anything out of the game.

Arsenal got back into the match in the 49th when United defender Marcos Rojo tried and failed to play Lacazette offside.

Midfielder Aaron Ramsey was onside when he touched the ball back to Lacazette who fired it past De Gea.

Mourinho sarcastically referred to Lacazette's presence on the pitch, because before the match Wenger said the forward would most definitely not be available because of a groin injury sustained during the week.

"I would like it if Paul could play against us because I like to face the teams with the best players possible to see if we are able to beat them".

Jose Mourinho had set up his side to hit the hosts on the counter and Lingard would have a one-on-one with Cech soon after United conceded but the veteran keeper managed to make redirect his shot onto the bar to prevent the Red Devils from restoring their two-goal advantage.

The visitors had Paul Pogba sent off for a unsafe challenge on Hector Bellerin in the second half, while Gunners centre-back Laurent Koscielny escaped with just a yellow card when he tripped Romelu Lukaku to break up a promising attack.

Arsenal had two genuine penalty shouts waved away in the closing stages with de Gea nearly singlehandedly keeping the Gunners at bay with some incredible saves.
