  • Arsenal can still “hurt” Spurs this season says Jamie Redknapp

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho stoked the embers of his rivalry with Arsenal counterpart Arsene Wenger after his side's damaging 2-0 defeat at the Emirates Stadium.

United were victorious, by a score of 1-0 at Celta Vigo in the Europa semi-final away leg last Thursday night.

The defeat for Manchester United has left any hopes of finishing in the top four this season hanging by a thread, which puts the pressure on Europa League success as they chase Champions League qualification.

Arsenal's win has seen them remain in sixth place in the Premier League table, but they are still 14 points and four places below Tottenham. I watched the Liverpool game [against Southampton] before we kicked off and I saw the penalty that the referee gave to them.

Mourinho said he was delighted with the performance of his players and said, under the burden of so many injuries and fixtures, he was surprised they managed to go 25 matches unbeaten in the Premier League.

"It was the first time Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has beaten him in a competitive game, at the 16th attempt and after 13 years of trying. I think it will be nearly impossible to qualify through the Premier League", Mourinho said. "We need everybody. We have such a small squad in this moment and these guys have a fantastic answer", he added. "The first goal was quite lucky and the second goal was a great goal".

But the Frenchman opted against taunting Mourinho, preferring to urge his players, who are also in the FA Cup final against Chelsea, to finish the season strongly. To have that record of winning so many matches (against him) and not losing is something that is not normal. We had just one blip and I think it was a bit physical. "You become cleverer, and since my [last] red card, I think things have improved". "I was really afraid that [Phil] Jones, [Chris] Smalling and [Juan] Mata could not cope with 90 minutes because they have been injured, but they did. We responded", he said.

"We didn't deserve to lose", he said.

"We shook hands before and after the game".

A disappointing afternoon for us at the Emirates as goals from Xhaka and Welbeck settle the game. The Arsenal fans are happy and I am happy for them.
