Why we lost to Manchester United - Wenger

Pogba sarcastically applauded Marriner as he headed for the tunnel and United boss Mourinho made it clear the France star wasn't happy with the decision or his worldwide team-mate's part in it.

United were indebted to David De Gea for a superb display, the Spaniard making 14 saves, the joint most by a goalkeeper in the Premier League era.

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

Danny Welbeck and Alexandre Lacazette, appealed in vain for penalties and, with his tongue firmly in his cheek, Mourinho said: "I know the pitch is awesome and maybe breeds a desire to go to the floor".

"I am really disappointed because it was a good performance", he said. In my case it was different, because I wanted to win, I wanted the game to finish.

"We scored two quick goals but at the end of the first half we lost control of the game".

Antonio Valencia intercepted a poor pass from defender Laurent Koscielny that was meant for wing back Sead Kolasinac.

Valencia looked to have been denied by his extra touch off a Paul Pogba through ball, but spun the ball through Petr Cech's legs to make it 1-0. Anthony Martial flicked on to Lingard in the area and the latter's effort careened in off a post.

"I felt that at the back our concentration was not sharp enough from the start and not dominant enough".

Arsenal piled on the pressure for much of the rest of the game, but Alexandre Lacazette's goal counted for little as Lingard netted his second following more slack defensive work from the home side.

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 on Wednesday.

Discussing the Pogba red card, he said: "I don't know". But when United are playing on the break, countering with speed, a player like Lingard is flawless.

Pogba drove forward into the box and held off Koscielny to pull back a pass for Lingard, who converted an easy tap-in.

However, Pogba's crude "studs-up" lunge at Hector Bellerin revealed another side in the 75th minute.

"De Gea was man of the match by a clear mile", Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said.

Wenger's side fired 33 shots at goal, with 15 finding the target.
