A win is a win, no matter how or by how many. A brilliant first-half display coupled with a fantastic counter-attacking goal in the second-half gave Manchester United an important win. “I loved the way my team played and fought. Arsenal played in some period amazing attacking football – creating difficulties for us, said an optimistic Jose Mourinho after the game.
“But I have to say that my players deserve all the great words. I don’t know so many in English but amazing, phenomenal, fantastic. They deserved three points.”
Manchester United’s thumping victory over the Gunners was all down to the brilliance of that Spaniard standing between the sticks. Arsenal had 75% possession and managed 33 attempts on the night, but only one ended into the back of the net. Be it Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil, Alexandre Lacazette, Sead Kolasinac or whoever, David De Gea made sure he keeps his record clean.
“David de Gea was man of the match by a clear mile,” and those were the words of Arsene Wenger, whose side lost its first home game since January. Had it not been for the Spaniard, United would have easily conceded at least 4-5 goals. We might actually run out of adjectives in defining De Gea’s performance against the Gunners, hence take a look at how the Twitter reacted to his display.
I never thought it was possible that I would see a #mufc goalkeeper as good as Peter Schmeichel in my lifetime. I was wrong: David de Gea

He’s arguably the best goalkeeper in the world.
