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.

"It was two very good teams going through different moments of the game", he said. I don't know so many in English but wonderful, phenomenal, fantastic.

Discussing the Pogba red card, he said: "I don't know".

The one negative for United was Paul Pogba's sending off for a studs-up tackle on Hector Bellerin in the 74th minute.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba admits he is glad to no longer be the world's most expensive footballer.

In a post-match huddle which also included Jose Mourinho, Thierry Henry and William Gallas, he gestured that it may have been Bellerin's unusual attempt to tackle that was to blame.

"You need the keeper to be there for you when the team needs him", said Mourinho, whose side closed the gap on leaders Manchester City to five points.

"Of course, they can say they had chances but we fought and we had a great goalkeeper too and I think we deserved it".

The one negative was Pogba's dismissal in the second half, which rules the France worldwide out of next weekend's derby with Manchester City.

Regardless of that result, United will remain in the title hunt when their hated neighbours arrive at Old Trafford next weekend.

Man United's mercurial talisman Paul Pogba may have strayed into that risky territory this weekend when speaking to BBC Football Focus about City's players.

"We are second and are chasing the top of the table".

Arsenal responded excellently, however, forcing David De Gea into a string of excellent saves. "David was wonderful. When they had the two or three clear chances David was there so we are very happy". "What I saw was the best goalkeeper in the world". "But we had nothing to show for it at the end and that is hard to take".

The French ace, 24, won both the League Cup and Europa League during his first season back in the English game, but believes that analysis was distorted because of his price tag.
