LG PERFORMANCE OF THE WEEK: MOURINHO GUIDES MANCHESTER UNITED TO IMPORTANT WIN AGAINST ARSENAL
The League Managers Association’s
five-man panel, comprising LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson,
Joe Royle, Dave Bassett and Barry Fry, has determined that the LG Performance
of the Week Award should go to Manchester United for their crucial 3-1 victory
against Arsenal on Saturday 2nd December 2017.
The experienced and highly distinguished panel has managed a combined total of over 6,000 competitive matches in professional football.

Manchester United claimed a first Premier League win for three years over Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday tea-time in an enthralling encounter which featured great goals, a red card and a David De Gea masterclass.
Goals from Antonio Valencia and a double from the in-form Jesse Lingard were enough to see off an Arsenal side who had not lost at home since January. But the Reds' superb victory was down in no small part to De Gea, who was in scintillating form. The only negative of the afternoon was the red card for Paul Pogba, who will miss the next three matches including next Sunday's huge derby clash.
