Huge win, 3-1, not at easy as the score suggests, and Jose Mourinho had every reason to be over the moon after the final whistle at the Emirates Stadium, thinking of as many adjectives as he could, to praise his players.
I loved the way my team played and fought. Arsenal played in some period amazing attacking football, creating difficulties for us. 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
the Portuguese told BT Sport after Man United’s triumph over Arsenal. Antonio Valencia gave United the lead just four minutes into the game, and Jesse Lingard made it 2-0 soon after that, before adding a second personal one in the second half, but Mourinho started his flash interview singling out David de Gea.
I told him after the match, what I saw today was the best from a goalkeeper in the world. You need the keeper to be there for you when the team needs him
the Man United manager said, acknowledging that the Spaniard’s contribution to the win at Emirates was huge.
