Wenger - Arsenal couldn't afford to lose today

Granit Xhana's heavily-deflected strike was followed three minutes later by Danny Welbeck's header against his old club to give Arsenal a 2-0 victory, ending Manchester United's 25-game top-flight unbeaten run.

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.

Sunday's defeat leaves United four points behind rivals Manchester City in fourth place, and five points from Liverpool in third, albeit with a game in hand over the Anfield club.

Liverpool's James Milner, who had not missed a penalty in the league since November 2009, had his second-half spot kick saved by Fraser Forster after some mind games from the England worldwide as the mid-table visitors battled for a draw.

If they can win the tournament then they'll get a Champions League spot as well as their second trophy of the season and that would be massive for Mourinho in his first season at the club. I left Highbury they were crying, I left the Emirates, they were crying. Jose Mourinho has always been second or first in terms of goal scoring.

"So finally today they sing, they (swing) the scarves - it's nice for them". "We responded", he said.


"We play Celta Vigo and we need to focus on that from this moment", Mata told MUTV.

"The manager gave me one task, to stay with him [Sanchez], and I seemed to do that quite well, but again, we didn't win so it doesn't count as much".

In short, none of the four sides pushing for the top four behind Chelsea and Tottenham have been convincing. I am happy for them.

"So, hard to manage it but I think, in principle, the team was good, was organised, played to win and defended well". We still have a chance [of the top four] and we need some help from teams around us.

Mourinho's men have just one more chance to make amends this season, when they take on Tottenham at White Hart Lane on Sunday. We could not afford to lose today.

"We'll see. I don't know [whether he will feature on Wednesday]". "Arsenal defended, coped with our attacking football, and they did well to keep the advantage".
