Wenger focuses on Arsenal win rather than Mourinho

08 May 2017

United, meanwhile, remain fifth in the Premier League after drawing twice in a row with Manchester City and Swansea.

Winning the Europa League now seems to be the best way for the Red Devils to make the Champions League next season.

United have a huge game on Thursday as they welcome Celta Vigo for the second leg of their Europa League semi-final. A focus on the Europa League has seen domestic form suffer, with the Galicians knocking out Shakhtar Donetsk, Krasnodar and Genk having finished second in Group G to fellow semi-finalists Ajax. Now, the competition could be his savior.

As are the team's top-four ambitions, if you listened to Mourinho after the game. Arsene Wenger is not a small manager.

Not a mutinous flypast in sight on this, Arsene Wenger's first competitive win over Jose Mourinho at the 15th time of asking.

"The Arsenal fans, they are happy", Mourinho said. "I think further down the line that leads to trouble". I leave the Emirates, and they were crying, walking the streets with heads low. So finally today they sing, they wave their scarves. It's nice for them.

They are already four points behind City in fourth place, with only three games left to play. Liverpool could only draw 0-0 at home to Southampton in the other league game played on Sunday.

The Gunners boss brought an end to that frustrating streak at just the right time as goals from Granit Xhaka and Danny Welbeck improved Arsenal's chances of salvaging a troubled season by finishing in the top four.

Over the last 13 years, the two supreme managers in world football have gone back and forth, from exchanging veiled insults to boasting about their superiority in front of the press.

"It was hard for me to manage the game because in the end the players I wanted to replace were players that in principle will start the game on Thursday".

Celta, playing in its first major European semifinal, lost for the first time in its last six European games.

Arsenal in recent seasons always have two huge home wins; at the beginning of the season like Chelsea in October and now Manchester United.

A fine effort scored straight from the set piece was an indication of Rashford's confidence and willingness to step up to the plate in the absence of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The penalty was awarded for a handball against Jack Stephens.
