Mourinho goads Wenger after defeat at Arsenal

On Sunday the Emirates Stadium hosted the captivating clash between Arsenal and Manchester United, now in 6th and 5th position in the standings.

Addressing the press before Mourinho, Wenger had played down the significance of his first league victory over the Portuguese.

Mourinho does now have more options at his disposal, but he has already suggested that he will include a number of youngsters in his Premier League plans if United are able to reach the Europa League final.

"The situation is simple - 17 matches in seven weeks with 16 players is impossible".

He added: "It is the first time I leave and they are happy".

"When they hear something like that they keep telling me: "Join that club" or "Go there!"

Kieran Gibbs says he is a fan of Arsene Wenger's three-man defence and believes Arsenal are learning the new strategy quickly after their victory over Manchester United. You think I enjoy a big club like Arsenal not winning trophies? I'm not enjoying that.

Mourinho was also annoyed by Wenger and accused him of trying to influence fourth official Craig Pawson during the game, although the bitter managerial rivals shook hands afterwards. He's a big manager.

"It was important because we lost at Tottenham, it didn't happen many times".

"And I want to give the players the conditions to compete on Thursday with a team that is resting all of their players in the Spanish league today".

The defender relished the opportunity despite his side's 2-0 defeat and hopes his first-team breakthrough will lead to him playing a bigger role in the United squad next season.

"We lost players, four in one week, when we lost Smalling and Jones in the national team and Rojo and Zlatan against Anderlecht".

"Then two days later we play Southampton and two days later we play Crystal Palace". In fact, we have recently won at Middlesbrough, we beat Manchester City in the semi-final of the cup, we won against Leicester and today. How they play matters and qualification for next season's Champions League, which will be secured if they triumph in the May 24 Europa League final in Sweden, might further expose the deficiencies of the Mourinho brand.
