Arsenal vs Manchester United: Mourinho reveals why his side defeated Wenger's men

Wenger replaced the German global with Alex Iwobi, but when asked about the defender's injury, he said: "I don't know what [injury] he has".

And while fans will never truly know the exact methods behind the Special One's masterclass, Chris Smalling did his best to provide an insight. The match at the Emirates was filled with incredible chances, lovely moves and good team goals, but Jose Mourinho's team was the one that won three points and continue their chase for Manchester City.

The 29-year-old's performances of late have been encouraging and his post suggests he remains committed to the Gunners cause at least till the time he is contractually obligated to them.

"Quite often, they [Arsenal] are only used to playing against one". Did quieten down as Arsenal put on more pressure, before being substituted off for Ander Herrera. The fact De Gea had to make over a dozen of saves to keep United safe says a lot.

De Gea told MUTV afterwards: "Sometimes, you just start a game with a really good save, with a good feeling, you feel that [unstoppable] but we started the game really well, we scored two important goals and it's true that we lost a bit of a control of the game after, but it was a good performance".

"We defended very well, I don't think they created many chances after that, so the three points stayed with us".

"You need the keeper to be there for you when the team needs", added Mourinho.

However, this all crumbled as one of United's most important players ruled himself out of the Manchester Derby after receiving a needless red card for a challenge on Hector Bellerin, massively reducing his overall match rating.
