Hope for Arsenal as Wenger breaks Mourinho hex with 2-0 beating

Arsene Wenger finally recorded a Premier League victory against Jose Mourinho as Arsenal kept their slim top-four hopes alive with a well-deserved win over Manchester United.

Goals from Granit Xhaka and Danny Welbeck in quick succession put the Red Devils to the sword and Wenger was pleased with a "good win".

Sixth-placed Arsenal are now six points behind fourth-placed Manchester City with four games to play, while Pep Guardiola's side have only three matches remaining.

The Gunners welcome United to the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon with the once bitter title rivals now battling it out for the outside chance of sneaking into the top four of the Premier League.

"The truth is that I hope Wenger keeps his job at Arsenal, I really do", claimed Mourinho. And, because we go with everything on Thursday [against Celta Vigo], we can not go with everything at Tottenham. When you go with everything against Tottenham it's hard.

"When you see someone like Rashford, it is right to want to push him even more - you don't want him to think he has made it, and stop putting the work in to improve".

"Two days later Southampton, two days later Crystal Palace". We missed chances but the team played well, they were compact against a team who are hard to play against.

United, who hold a 1-0 lead from the first leg, will qualify for the Champions League if they win the Europa League, so Mourinho wasn't too concerned with the result against Arsenal.

The second leg is at Old Trafford next Thursday with the winners of the tie meeting Ajax or Lyon in the final.

If Mourinho does make wholesale changes, long-term nemesis Arsene Wenger will have no excuse as he chases a first Premier League win over the former Chelsea boss.

"When he was asked about what his secret with free-kicks was, Beckham always said it was just down to practise, and the time he spent to get every part of executing them exactly right".

The Old Trafford chief has questioned the desire of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones to return from injuries for United.

If that was a fortuitous way to take the lead, Arsenal had no need to apologise for their superb second goal three minutes later.

"A hectic schedule at this stage of the season is normally what you want because it shows that you are still involved in the competitions, so I am not going to speculate on any weakness of Manchester United". "We can accept the opponent scoring one goal, but we didn't score enough goals". Anders Herrera has had an impressive season for United and we need him to be firing on all cylinders on the tackling front this weekend, hopefully alongside [Paul] Pogba.

"The bar is ridiculously high, but that is where he is aiming and, you know what, I think he can make it".

There has been no evidence to support this theory of Hernandez dying an innocent man due to his death occurring during an appeal. In the report compiled by a state police detective assigned to Worcester County District Attorney Joseph Early Jr .

"It was important because we lost at Tottenham - that didn't happen many times", Wenger said.
