Until Pogba's dismissal, everything had looked flawless for United, for whom David De Gea was outstanding and was beaten only by Alexandre Lacazette just after the interval.

"If I am a player, and I think with what we produced we have a huge potential, and we lose the game, we can not accept that".

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

Pogba was sent off for a studs-first tackle on Hector Bellerin in United's 3-1 win over Arsenal on Saturday.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola was sad to see Paul Pogba get a red card that will cause the Manchester United midfielder to miss the top-of-the-table derby match next weekend.

Twitter reacts as Manchester United manage to steal away three points from the more dominant Arsenal, who will be kicking themselves after not being able to capitalise on some serious pressure from start to finish.

He said the performance had been so impressive that he could not think of enough superlatives, adding: "I think it was a phenomenal game".

'I played against him when he was at Real Madrid and he's a different player to what he was then. Arsenal played in some period awesome attacking football - creating difficulties for us.

"I told him after the match, what I saw today was the best from a goalkeeper in the world".

David de Gea's lightning reflexes have been beyond doubt for some time now but with Arsenal's shot-count hitting 15 on target, it was clear when all was said and done who José Mourinho's side were indebted to.

"Last night I watched Napoli v Juventus on TV and we watched a top-class referee".

"They had chances but we fought and we have a great goalkeeper too".

Arsenal got its goal from Alexandre Lacazette, and sits fifth with 28 points.

It was off a bad giveaway, and Arsenal had a second one moments later.

The Portuguese's team beat the Gunners 3-1 in a classic match at the Emirates, with Jesse Lingard (2) and Antonio Valencia picking up the goals. We were not decisive enough.

"We didn't start well at all at the back but overall our performance was, for patches, absolutely brilliant", he told BBC Sport.
