It was a mystery how we didn't score more goals - Wenger

Jose Mourinho has aimed a dig at Arsenal by sarcastically congratulating their medical team for getting Alexandre Lacazette back to fitness for the 3-1 defeat to Manchester United.

EPL giants Manchester United secured a 3-1 comfortable win against Arsenal on Saturday, December 2 to narrow Manchester City's lead to five points.

Manchester United winger Antonio Valencia opened the scoring for the hosts in the 4th minute as he pounced on Arsenal's error in their own box.

"I told him after the match - what I saw today was the best goalkeeper in the world", the Portuguese told BT Sport.

"Well, I don't know how to answer that question, but what I do know is where he went is unsafe". "I leave for you the Lukaku situation with Koscielny, I leave for you the Arsenal players on the grass".

"It was phenomenal game".

And the nature of United's vibrant display answered the critics who have accused Mourinho of "parking the bus" in away games against the sides challenging for top-four places.

"The plan was when they have to the ball we all have to defend, starting with the attacking players".

However, there have been suggestions Man United could appeal the decision and the respective three-game ban in an attempt to have Pogba back in the frame for City.

For Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, who has had an often fractious relationship with Mourinho, there was pride in the way his side recovered from a horror start but ultimately a sense of frustration at their failure to take anything out of the game.

"I think it was a fantastic game", Mourinho, whose United sides had managed only one goal in their previous seven away to Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea, told reporters.

"We played well but there is nothing more frustrating when you have that quality of performance and nothing to show for it at the end".

"It was a mystery yes (to not score more), but David de Gea was man of the match by a clear mile". But I have to also say that Arsenal played, in some periods, amazing, attacking football, creating difficulties for us. The attitude was impeccable until the end. We were too on the edge mentally maybe - you can not be in a game like that.
