Jose Mourinho to put Euro adventure first for Man United

Two second-half goals from Granit Xhaka and Danny Welbeck saw Wenger securing his first Premier League win over the former Chelsea boss in 13 attempts.

Alvarez then charged from his net in the 35th to make a leg save that prevented Henrikh Mkhitaryan from finding the net after entering the area free of markers, and four minutes later the goalie deflected a close-range shot by Jesse Lingard.

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

"Before when I left Highbury, they were crying, I left Emirates, they were crying". They were walking the streets with heads low. Today they leave with their scarves. It's nice for them.

"But they are a big club". I'm not enjoying that, honestly. In a odd way, it might have been better if we had lost today. He's a big manager. "And Arsene Wenger is a big manager so my record (in never losing a Premier League game to him) is not normal".

"The free-kick is really well taken and I think the goalkeeper has no chance because the ball is really fast".

"[There was] no problem - we shook hands before the game, we shook hands after the game".

Trump says he would be "honoured" to meet Kim Jong
Lu Chao, from the Liaoning Academy of Social Sciences, said Trump's offer could be "positive" to the Korean crisis. The THAAD system has taken on new urgency for the United States as South Korea approaches its May 9 election.

"I think it'll be a step too far for them this time around". However, Wenger said that qualifying for the Champions League is still possible as the Gunners have one game in hand over both Manchester teams.

At this moment, the perspective is different because the Europa League becomes even more important for us. "It is not manager against manager". Liverpool could only draw 0-0 at home to Southampton in the other league game played on Sunday.

"Now we need to win all of our games and wait for Liverpool to drop points in their last two fixtures".

'It was a match between the teams in fifth and sixth place in the Premier League but it felt more like it was ninth versus tenth, in one of those dead rubbers you get at the end of the season, ' Neville wrote in the BBC. "It was very nice".

United's 1-0 Europa League semi-final first-leg win at Celta Vigo on Thursday was their 10th game since 1 April.

But with a Champions League spot at stake and the Europa League seemingly the best bet to reach there, Mourinho opted to field a weakened eleven on Sunday. I think he did an unbelievable job and I think Alexis [Sanchez] knows his name because the kid played very well.

"Of course it depends on the result, it depends on the way we analyse the situation tomorrow after the match, but if we have to rest players next weekend, we are going to do that". Live streaming is available Fox Sports Go and on FuboTV, which you can access through fubo.tv.
