Once again Jose Mourinho took the best of Wenger's coaching and Arsenal. Antonio Valencia beautifully fired home the opener, before Jesse Lingard drilled home the second after some impressive link-up play involving Romelu Lukaku and Anthony Martial.

Manchester United punished Arsenal with a clinical performance, bagging two early goals on their way to a 3-1 win at Arsenal's Ashburton Grove; a venue which has proved something of a fortress throughout 2017.

The former Manchester United keeper has opted against placing the current No. 1 at Old Trafford on top of the global rankings in a rather bold call.

Arsenal had over thirty attempts in the match and De Gea was more than up to the task and delivered a record-tying appearance.

"He was a doubt, he managed to play 90 minutes but I think the best words must go to Arsenal's medical department because [Alexandre] Lacazette went from a "no" to a "90 minutes" and that's great". "It was hard, but it was a good game".

"I think that was the most important save but, like I said, the full team defended very well and fought for the three points".

In total, David de Gea pulled off 14 magnificent saves, equaling the Premier League held jointly by Vito Mannone and Tim Krul.

I think even at 2-1 we can not afford to concede another goal.

It can also be argued that not only is he the best man between the sticks but that De Gea is now better in his position than any other player is in theirs. I don't know so many more in English!

De Gea displayed nearly unfathomable reflexes, matchless athleticism and typically dependable distribution to make a case for being the world's greatest goalkeeper.

The plan was when they [Arsenal] had the ball, we all had to defend, starting with the attacking players, and when we have the ball, we had to try to counter-attack fast and try to score goals, which we did.
