Wenger shrugs off breaking Mourinho curse

Mourinho said that defeat meant it would now be "impossible" for United to finish in the top four, insisting his team's chances of playing in Europe's premier competition next season now rest entirely on winning the Europa League.

The win puts Arsenal just six points off fourth-placed Manchester City.

But Wenger, who shook hands with his rival both before and after the game, brushed off the idea that finally beating Mourinho should give him extra personal satisfaction.

Everything else was familiar with United under orders to produce the sort of bodies behind the ball performance that makes them so hard to beat.

Not too long after, Danny Welbeck headed in an Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain cross that doubled Arsenal's lead.

Manchester United boss Mourinho said: "Arsenal fans are happy and I'm happy for them".

"I left Highbury, they were crying, I left Emirates Stadium, they were crying".

First came the game against Liverpool, where they drew 0-0, despite taking seven attempts on goal. The Arsenal fans were finally cheering and singing and it is nice for them.

"It was important because we lost at Tottenham", said Wenger.

"Like today, we try to play for a result".

Joao Castelo-Branco and Mark Ogden react to Arsenal's win over Man United, and the state of each club late in the season.

"All is not flawless but I think we are a bit more defensively focused at the moment than we were a few weeks ago and it helps us a little bit". I think Jones, Smalling, Mata were wonderful, the way they performed after seven weeks of being out. Hopefully it gives him confidence.

"We have still a chance mathematically, and we need some help as well from the teams around us", he added. This is a phase where we have to win every game, which we know.

Tuanzebe believes Mourinho's trust in youngsters bodes well for players such as Demetri Mitchell and United States youth global Matthew Olosunde, who also made the trip to North London but were not included in the squad. We have four games left that we need to approach in the same way as today. "Arsenal scored and afterwards they brought the block low and defended well and coped with our attacking football".
