Wenger Disappointed But 'Proud' Of His Arsenal Players Despite Man United Defeat

Wenger Disappointed But 'Proud' Of His Arsenal Players Despite Man United Defeat”

Leaders City can restore their eight-point advantage if they beat West Ham United in their game in hand on Sunday.

Antonio Valencia and Jesse Lingard put United ahead after just 11 minutes before Lacazette struck to provide a lifeline for Arsenal shortly after half-time.

Alexandre Lacazette, a surprise inclusion after Arsene Wenger had ruled him out in the build-up, was a lively presence and began to test de Gea's reflexes from a manner of angles.

"You need the keeper to be there for you when the team needs", added Mourinho. "All the effort from the players was magnificent". "I didn't see the tackle", Mourinho said.

"Well, I don't know how to answer that question, but what I do know is where he went is risky".

Asked about Pogba's possible suspension, the Sports Breakfast co-host said on talkSPORT: "I would appeal that".

De Gea played down his role, saying it was simply a "good game for me" before focusing on the "confidence" United can take into next week's Manchester derby at Old Trafford.

Arsenal rarely dominate games against the top six in such impressive fashion and the 75 per cent possession played into Mourinho's hands.

Mourinho added: "I loved the way my team played and fought". "I believe at the back, we didn't start well at all and we put ourselves in a very hard position". I have to say we deserve all the great words.

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

"Look, I'm angry and disappointed because when you produce that quality and have nothing to show for it it's hard to accept", the Frenchman said during his post-match interaction with the media.

"It was a mystery yes (not scoring more goals), but David de Gea was man-of-the-match by a clear mile".

"I'm angry and disappointed because at the end, we have nothing to show for it and even at 2-1, we made another mistake at the back that made the game even more hard". The attitude was impeccable until the end. "But you can not make the mistakes we made at the beginning".
