Four things we learned from Arsenal v. Man United

Nemanja Matic will travel with Manchester United squad to face Arsenal on Saturday despite still being major injury doubt

Arsenal and Man Utd in title race showdown

Lacazette was twice denied by De Gea, who relied on his reactions to keep out a close-range toe poke before needing assistance from the crossbar to keep out another on-target attempt from the Frenchman.

Arsene Wenger felt Arsenal produced an "absolutely brilliant" performance against Manchester United that was ruined by early defensive errors.

"It's a mystery [we did not score more] but he [De Gea] was the man of the match by a mile", said Wenger.

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.

While Lacazette did finally beat De Gea when Aaron Ramsey's poor touch from Alexis Sanchez's cross dropped perfectly into his path, the Spaniard continued to defy a home team smelling blood.

The home side were camped in the United half in the final 10 minutes, and Hector Bellerin and Kolasinac forced David de Gea into a couple fine saves in the closing stages.

Everton Set to Appoint Sam Allardyce
His first game will be at home to Huddersfield on Saturday, and he will no doubt want to cap his first game off with a victory. So with that in mind it's no wonder Everton are throwing a lot of money at a manager who's never been relegated.

'I'm not sure that he's completely fit to do it but he wants to play and I trust his experience. Arsenal played in some period awesome 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 more in English". I don't know so many in English but wonderful, phenomenal, fantastic. Amazing, phenomenal, fantastic. They deserved three points.

United ran out 3-1 winners with two goals from Jesse Lingard and an early Antonio Valencia strike, but that only tells part of the story as Alexandre Lacazette scored for the Gunners, Paul Pogba was sent off and David De Gea was in sensational form.

They comfortably held on despite Paul Pogba being sent off for a unsafe challenge late on, punishing Arsenal for early defensive mistakes.

"Despite being 2-0 down, we should have come back".

"It was a big blow psychologically to be 2-0 down at the start". We were too on the edge mentally maybe - you can not be in a game like that. When you play at home, that can not happen. "But you can not make the mistakes we made at the beginning".
