Pogba reveals what he hates about Jose Mourinho's training sessions

The Frenchman received his marching orders after 74 minutes for a tackle on Hector Bellerin and he will now play no part in any of the Red Devils' next three domestic fixtures, at least.

Future team-mates at Manchester United?

"I just know that Paul is frustrated".

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.

The fly in the ointment for Mourinho was a straight red card for Paul Pogba, which will rule the French powerhouse out of next weekend's crunch derby with Manchester City.

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".

"If I am a player, and I think with what we produced we have a huge potential, and we lose the game, we can not accept that".

"If it's not a penalty, it's not a penalty".

The one negative was Pogba's dismissal in the second half, which rules the France global out of next weekend's derby with Manchester City. "It was a brilliant performance from the team, defensively and on the counter attack we killed them, so we're really happy with the three points".

Before welcoming City to Old Trafford, United have a midweek Champions League fixture to contend with.

But Mourinho refused to label the seismic showdown as a make or break moment in the title race. We go match after match.

"In the second half we had to regroup and reorganise".

United were certainly indebted to their goalkeeper at the Emirates, and Mourinho was effusive in his praise after the game.

"We started with that desire and intensity, we played high and created mistakes", he said. And we put ourselves in a very hard position.

But it was De Gea who took the plaudits after he made some magnificent saves - with 14 in total - and was beaten only by a close-range shot from Alexandre Lacazette.

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

Arsenal responded excellently, however, forcing David De Gea into a string of excellent saves.

"Last night I watched Napoli v Juventus on TV and we watched a top-class referee. But you can not make the mistakes we made at the beginning".
