No Pogba, no problem - Lingard confident Man Utd can cover derby ban

"Their goalkeeper was absolutely outstanding".

Wenger's side fired 33 shots at goal, with 15 finding the target.

But if anyone can, it's probably Man United, who now lead the rest of the Premier League pack and sit eight points behind their "noisy neighbours".

Only Tim Krul - for Newcastle against Tottenham in 2013 - and Vito Mannone - for Sunderland at Chelsea in 2014 - have recorded 14 saves in a game since Opta began gathering this piece of data in 2003-04.

The Gunners pulled one back through Alexandre Lacazette shortly into the second half and had a number of chances to add to their tally.

It's emerged that Pogba could see his three-game suspension extended if the FA decide to punish the 24-year-old for applauding the referee as he walked away from the incident.

"I told him after the match, what I saw today was the best from a goalkeeper in the world".

"It was physical and technical so I always loved it". We put ourselves in hard positions.


"But I have to say that my players deserve all the great words".

Danny Welbeck and Alexandre Lacazette, appealed in vain for penalties and, with his tongue firmly in his cheek, Mourinho said: "I know the pitch is fantastic and maybe breeds a desire to go to the floor".

City are five points ahead of United, but can extend that lead to eight if they beat lowly West Ham on Sunday.

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

Former Premier League champions Leicester City, enjoying a revival under new boss Claude Puel, won 1-0 at home to Burnley courtesy of an early strike from flying winger Demarai Gray. We were too on the edge mentally maybe - you can not be in a game like that.

He said "Some day I hope City are going to slip and I hope, and I know that it's bad to say things like that, but I hope for us that some very important players get injured". The attitude was impeccable until the end.

"At the beginning we needed to be patient with Brighton's style, " said manager Jurgen Klopp, whose side have scored 12 goals in their past three Premier League away games."We needed to get used to it".
