Pogba happy not being world's most expensive player

Although Antonio Valencia's early strike and Jesse Lingard's brace ultimately secured a first win for United at the Emirates Stadium since 2014, De Gea's significant contribution can not be overlooked as the no.1 was in outstanding form between the sticks - beaten only by Alexandre Lacazette's strike early in the second half.

Wenger said: "I am not Pochettino, I am Arsene Wenger".

Wenger saw his side gift United two goals in the first 12 minutes on Saturday and failed to take anything from the game despite having an incredible 33 shots on goal.

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 incredible and maybe breeds a desire to go to the floor".

They comfortably held on despite Paul Pogba being sent off for a risky challenge late on, punishing Arsenal for early defensive mistakes. I leave for you that one. "It was a brilliant performance from the team, defensively and on the counter attack we killed them, so we're really happy with the three points".

"But, what makes you angry is that you produce that performance and in the end you have nothing to show for it. A bit disappointed with this colleague, Koscielny, with this kind of reaction", Mourinho said.

The one negative was Pogba's dismissal in the second half, which rules the France global out of next weekend's derby with Manchester City.

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

The last meeting between the pair was United's visit to the Emirates Stadium in May, when Wenger secured his first league win over Mourinho at the 13th attempt, a 2-0 victory.

The Gunners were thwarted in a chance to pull one back when David De Gea stopped Alexandre Lacazette at close range before Granit Xhaka laced the rebound wide of the frame.

Lacazette got one back but Lingard's second sealed the points.

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

Defender Chris Smalling added: "You come out before a game saying you need to get off to a good start, but that's the best start I think we've ever had".
