The Premier League heavyweights took part in a slugfest in the English capital, with Jose Mourinho's side somehow surviving some seriously heavy punishment to run out victors and close the gap on leaders Manchester City to five points.

United face a challenging away fixture at Arsenal later today, while City host West Ham tomorrow and then, after midweek Champions League commitments, City and United will meet next weekend for the first time this season.

"I loved the way my team played and fought", said Mourinho".

Arsenal had 75 per cent of the possession and mustered 33 shots, but were thwarted by a strong United defence and an exceptional display from goalkeeper David de Gea.

Matt Luke was named the permanent head coach on Sunday after serving on an interim basis throughout the 2017 season. Among the penalties, Freeze was given a two-game conference suspension should he be hired before November 30, 2018.

Despite being 2-0 down, the Gunners dominated for the remainder of the first half and they almost pulled a goal back in the 30th minute when De Gea cleared Mesut Ozil's free-kick off the line.

The only disappointment for United was the second-half dismissal of Paul Pogba, with the Frenchman's red card for a stamp on Hector Bellerin ruling him out of next Sunday's crucial derby with Manchester City at Old Trafford . But I have to say that my players deserve all the great words. Hazard also provided a potent reminder of what England can expect when they face Belgium in the World Cup in Russian Federation next year. Earlier, Chelsea came from behind to sweep past Newcastle United 3-1 at Stamford Bridge. "We know that we don't get them", he added. Liverpool were not weakened and after stand-in centre half Emre Can put them ahead with a bullet header, Roberto Firmino hit a double, Philippe Coutinho scored from a free kick and Brighton's Lewis Dunk headed into his own net. Son Heung-Min equalised midway through the first half but Spurs were reduced to 10 men when Davinson Sanchez was dismissed shortly after the restart. "We were disappointed after Leicester". It will be good for the future.

"It was a big blow to go 2-0 so early on - especially at home".

"Despite being 2-0 down we should have come back - we had enough chances", said Wenger, whose side are now fifth.
