Why we lost to Manchester United - Wenger

Adjust Comment Print

Alan Pardew picked up a point in his first game in charge of West Brom as they drew 0-0 against his former club Crystal Palace.

Pogba is a world renowned midfielder with the best years of his career to come and he also provides a gravitas for other players to join Manchester United. I believe the game, it has to make us angry and even more determined.

Wenger said: "I am not Pochettino, I am Arsene Wenger".

The Portuguese's team beat the Gunners 3-1 in a classic match at the Emirates, with Jesse Lingard (2) and Antonio Valencia picking up the goals.

However, Pogba's crude "studs-up" lunge at Hector Bellerin revealed another side in the 75th minute.

'He's deceptively quick and if you can get that extra [bit of work rate] out of him I'd take him on a free transfer all day long.

Jose Mourinho insists he is "not surprised" Pep Guardiola was not punished for encroaching on the pitch on Wednesday - as the Manchester United boss was earlier this season. "If you want to analyse well, watch the difference between them and us and then you will see", he said.

Fresh from netting twice in a vital win over Arsenal, the England global forward told BBC Sport on Pogba's upcoming suspension: "It's a blow but the team have the players to adapt to that".

"If it was hard, no; if it was mud, no - the pitch is absolutely attractive but I think they were a bit too much". Do I think the players think that? Yes.

'But we have the experience to get better out of a game like that, you know.

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

'We have lost games here against Man United where we didn't deserve anything. "That's very hard to accept".

"In the second half we had to regroup and reorganise". "I told De Gea after the match, what I saw today was the best from a goalkeeper in the world".

"We have produced an excellent performance but have conceded three goals and had at least 10 chances and were not efficient enough in the box, that is the reality".
