Twitter Reacts As David De Gea & Manchester United Frustrate Arsenal In Thriller

Wenger refused to follow Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino's lead and rule his team out of the Premier League title race even though they are fifteen points behind leaders Manchester City.

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.

"The Neymar deal is special for me because it means journalists are not looking at the price any more".

'I am not Pochettino, I am Arsene Wenger, ' he said.

Antonio Valencia and Jesse Lingard put United 2-0 up in 11 minutes before Lingard struck again after Alexandre Lacazette pulled one back in a thriller of a game.

They comfortably held on despite Paul Pogba being sent off for a risky challenge late on, punishing Arsenal for early defensive mistakes.

'I am here to fight as long as I can, as long as mathematically it's possible you have to fight, you cannot give any other message out'.

"If it was hard, no; if it was mud, no - the pitch is absolutely lovely but I think they were a bit too much".

'That tells you what calibre of player he is. Do I think the players think that? Yes.

"But now not being the player with the price tag helps me, it helps me a lot to focus on the field and nothing else".

"We played well but there is nothing more frustrating when you have that quality of performance and nothing to show for it at the end. We're really confident now, we score many goals and this is the key as we look forward to the next game".

"We are second and are chasing the top of the table".

"There were awesome individuals performances and collectively we were very strong".

"We have produced an excellent performance but have conceded three goals and had at least 10 chances and were not efficient enough in the box, that is the reality". "I told De Gea after the match, what I saw today was the best from a goalkeeper in the world".
