Alexandre Lacazette celebrates after scoring Arsenal's first goal

As for Pogba's dismissal, which will rule him out of the Manchester derby, Mourinho said Arsenal had been fortunate not to go a man down as well following a challenge by Laurent Koscielny on Romelu Lukaku.

The Spaniard single-handedly kept the Gunners at bay with 14 saves at the Emirates, a joint-record in the Premier League since records began.

Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho defended Pogba after the Arsenal match and insisted that there was no malicious intent in his actions.

Later on in the press conference, Pep Guardiola discussed the form of Sergio Aguero and hinted that he may have to play two up front at Manchester United next week.

Manchester United will have to play the city derby without one of their key players.

'I take a lot of positives and I feel sorry for the players, that's why I'm angry.

It meant Sanchez's expected departure was delayed for 12 months.

As he was leaving the pitch, Pogba was seen clapping.

"I loved the way my team played and fought", he said.

It's worth noting that they conceded chances in games against Burnley and Huddersfield, but perhaps the £200m+ firepower of United was too hot to handle on a chilly evening in north London.

ARSENE WENGER has gone all Johnny Rotten as he claims that anger is an energy to help Arsenal rise from yet another major disappointment.

'But we have the experience to get better out of a game like that, you know.

The Frenchman is reported to have told compatriots Olivier Giroud, Thierry Henry and William Gallas after the Arsenal game that Bellerin's unorthodox attempt to block the ball with his trailing leg led to the accidental contact.

"We worked pre-season well and hard about playing sometimes with three at the back, sometimes four".

'But we had situations where, despite De Gea, we should have scored. "We produced excellent quality, but were not decisive enough", the veteran French boss added. But it's very difficult to accept when you produce a performance like this and still have nothing to show for it.

"We made two big mistakes right at the start".
