De Gea 'best in world' as United beat Arsenal 3-1

The Man United star cost £89million in 2016- but has since been outstripped by Neymar's £200m switch to PSG

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. When asked which was his favourite from a fine string of stops, he acknowledged: "Probably the double save when we were winning 2-1 [in the second half]".

"I don't know if you've watched many top-level shots, but when you have 33 shots on goal in a game of that stature, it means our dominance was top class".

De Gea made an incredible pair of stops on Lacazette and Alexis Sanchez in the 56th minute.

The keeper joked: "Yes, he almost scored an own goal!".

"He is very frustrated because everybody knows that Paul is a clean player and it was not his intention, not at all, to be close to a red card".

"If it was hard, no; if it was mud, no - the pitch is absolutely lovely but I think they were a bit too much". De Gea felt his team were successfully solid after the midfielder's dismissal.

Christian Kabasele opened the scoring for the Hornets before Son Heung-min equalised for Spurs, who had defender Davinson Sanchez sent off after his forearm hit Richarlison in the face.

"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". "You need the keeper to be there for you when the team needs him", said Mourinho, whose side closed the gap on leaders Manchester City to five points.

After impressing against Watford on Tuesday night, Mourinho stuck with the 24-year-old for the Emirates clash.

Manchester duo City and United continue to set the pace in this season's Premier League as the latest round of fixtures yielded few surprises. "We're really confident now, we score many goals and this is the key as we look forward to the next game".

Mourinho added: "I told De Gea after the match, what I saw today was the best from a goalkeeper in the world".
