Mourinho hails 'world best' De Gea as United beat Arsenal

Share

Matic has helped to reinforce Mourinho's midfield and give Pogba more freedom to dictate Manchester United's momentum.

David de Gea admits that he felt "unstoppable" when playing a leading role in Manchester United's 3-1 victory over Arsenal. Manchester United came to Emirates Stadium with fury and scored quickly two goals into the first minutes of the game.

As impressive as those shot attempts and expected goals stats are, the biggest reason why the game's score did not match the underlying statistics was de Gea, who faced down all 33 of those shots-16 of which were on target-and was equal to almost all of them.

Despite having burst out of the blocks to establish a two-goal lead in north London, United spent much of a testing encounter on the back foot.

David De Gea made 14 saves against Arsenal, equaling the record for the most stops in a Premier League match.

I think even at 2-1 we can not afford to concede another goal.

New Jersey Has A Tangled History With This Sports Betting Law
Courts, citing the federal law, have blocked New Jersey's repeated attempts to allow sports betting at its racetracks and casinos. In 2012, with voters' support, state lawmakers authorized sports betting at the state's casinos and racetracks.

As the Red Devils prepare to host CSKA Moscow on Tuesday night, Mourinho told reporters in his pre-match press conference that he will go into the game looking at Sergio Romero - who will start at Old Trafford - as the "best goalkeeper in the world" with Joel Pereira, deputising, as the second-best.

"I loved the way my team played and fought", Mourinho said. I do not think I have seen a better shot-stopper than De Gea.

Greater responsibility may fall on Lingard in the coming weeks when Paul Pogba will be suspended for second-placed United. I don't know so many more in English!

However, it was his performance against Arsenal that really proved just how brilliant De Gea truly is.

The plan was when they [Arsenal] had the ball, we all had to defend, starting with the attacking players, and when we have the ball, we had to try to counter-attack fast and try to score goals, which we did.
