However, according to Spanish news outlet Diario Gol, De Gea has his heart set on leaving United.

It was De Gea, however, who Mourinho singled out for special praise, telling BT Sport, "I told him after the match, what I saw today was the best from a goalkeeper in the world".

Over the weekend, Ian Wright got into a war of tweets with Arsenal fans for some of his thoughts after the Man United game.

There was a dazzling double save as Arsenal pressed to add a second goal after Lacazette halved the deficit - de Gea sprang to his right to block from the Frenchman and, still grounded, denied Alexis Sanchez with his foot as the Chilean followed up.

The visitors led by two goals after only eleven minutes. United are usually better than this, and you shouldn't ignore a season of good-to-great defending off the strength of a single match.

Goalkeeper Petr Cech said on "The game was decided at the start with our two mistakes and they scored".

United need just a point from their Tuesday night match against CSKA to top their group ahead of the Russian side and Basel, who beat Mourinho's team in the last round of games to put themselves in the box seat to qualify behind the Premier League title challengers.

"He was absolutely outstanding against Arsenal". When you see the potential we have and in the end the way we started at the back is very hard to swallow.

"I think we were carrying on from Watford and the fact that, when we play, obviously in this system, we can play with two strikers", he told MUTV. The attitude was impeccable until the end. "Arsenal played in some periods wonderful attacking football - creating difficulties for us".
