Jose Mourinho has no issues with Arsene Wenger ahead of weekend meeting

"Last year we scored three goals away against Atletico Madrid to go through (in the Copa del Rey) and their defence is very strong, and this year we won 2-1 at the Bernabeu and they are nearly in the Champions League final". It's the first time I see them smile and enjoy. Because there have been more bad games than good ones in the last few weeks and they are always capable of abandoning ship disastrously, as they did at West Bromwich Albion or Crystal Palace.

With both sides needing a win to keep pace in the race for the top four, it soon became an end-to-end encounter with Aaron Ramsey first going close for the hosts after a clever through ball from Alexis Sanchez allowed the Welshman to force De Gea into an outstanding low save to his right.

And United manager Jose Mourinho hailed his wonder kid who has stepped up in the absence of top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic due to cruciate ligament damage.

Goals from Granit Xhaka and Danny Welbeck shattered United's 25-match unbeaten run in the league as sixth-placed Arsenal closed the gap on fourth-placed Manchester City to six points with a game in hand.

To do that, under-fire Wenger will need to finally beat Mourinho in a Premier League match at the 13th time of asking on an afternoon when cameras are sure to be trained on the dugouts. That would be hard to take normally, though at least Mourinho and his players took the Europa League seriously from the start and have that means of Champions League qualification as insurance.

"Already he has won trophies and he will be really disappointed if he doesn't get another from the way they played against Celta Vigo in the first leg of the Europa League semis".

If Mourinho does make wholesale changes, long-term nemesis Arsene Wenger will have no excuse as he chases a first Premier League win over the former Chelsea boss. You could make the argument that his "standards" are dependent on the team and I'd grant you some credit for that, but that doesn't account for his raving ambitions and how he will never settle for less.

'I remember that I still met him in the corridor for the press conferences, we shook hands again.

Lingard just failed to get a telling touch on a Mkhitaryan cross as the visitors looked to take the advantage in an entertaining first half.

"We've been speaking before about players dealing with stress".

"The Arsenal fans, they are happy", Mourinho said.

United have little wriggle room yet Mourinho intends to rest players in north London, saying they wasted their "last chance" to reach the top four by drawing 1-1 at home to struggling Swansea last weekend.

"The free-kick is fantastic and I don't think the goalkeeper has any chance because the shot is very fast". Wenger, meanwhile, has not only refused to give in to the temptation to publicly castigate his charges but has passionately defended them at their moments of greatest crisis, saying after the 5-1 Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich that his players had been "unjustifiably criticised".
