The Manchester United winger's flamboyant celebration was perceived as taunting and Arsenal were determined to get their own back when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side returned to north London on Sunday.

With United already trailing to Granit Xhaka's opener, the decision was a hammer blow as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang slotted home the penalty to effectively seal the three points. He tagged the location of the Emirates Stadium as "Dancefloor", as he posted a picture of his moonwalk. "Proud to be a Gunner!"

'I don't know but in your mind you will never forget something like that, when somebody is celebrating, ' he said of Lingard's celebration.

"We can be proud because to play against a very good team, who play some of the best football in this league, is hard".

"The plan was to stay compact, close to each other, and wait for the mistake of Chelsea, then when we've got the ball, try to keep it and do something", he added.

The win lifted Arsenal up into fourth place in the Premier League and left them just one point behind their bitter local rivals Tottenham Hotspur with eight games left to play.

"We knew Manchester United could use different tactics but we wanted to impose our gameplan and I think we did that". If they win their game in hand (against Brighton) they will be equal on points with us as well!

The former Liverpool defender claims Arsenal's squad is the worst out of the top six clubs so he feels Emery is doing a fantastic job to be competing with superior teams such as Tottenham and Manchester United this season.

"Yes, of course", he told when asked if the race for a top-four finish could go down to the last day of the campaign. "It was important to take the three points and now we're back in the game".

On the performance at Stamford Bridge, which saw Raul Jimenez's strike cancelled out by a last-gasp Eden Hazard leveller, Saiss said: "It was very hard to concede this goal at the end because I think our plan was good".
