Arsenal loss has focussed Man United minds on Europa League, says Mata

"Arsenal fans are happy and I'm happy for them", said Mourinho, whose side had been unbeaten in 25 league games.

"It's a positive result that leaves us with the advantage, but it's a small advantage", United coach Jose Mourinho said. They were walking in the streets with their heads low. Today they leave with their scarves.

"It's a big club".

Owen added: "I think if you asked his teammates they'd probably prefer to play with Rashford up front because he gives them options". I'm not enjoying that, honestly.

Downplaying his rivalry with Mourinho, Wenger said: "It is not manager against manager. And Arsene Wenger is a big manager so my record (in never losing a Premier League game to him) is not normal". Wouldn't it have been better for United to go for it more in some matches, and therefore risk defeat, in an attempt to turn draws into wins? Build on this, exert a little pressure and who knows?

And frankly it should be discussed. "So we're looking at that, and we're also looking at the potential of going to Saudi Arabia". In a separate interview Monday night, Meacham, who wrote a biography on Jackson, called Trump's comments "disturbing".

The fighters believe this to be the case due to the fact that it has a common enemy with ISIS, the YPG (People's Protection Unit). Retaking the dam is considered a vital step toward further isolating the area around Raqqa and eventually recapturing the city.

Celta s greater attacking intent was offering United more space on the counter-attack and Rashford didn t make the most of one promising opening after skipping past Gustavo Cabral. "The game was under control".

Mourinho's warning that he may field a weakened team against Arsenal on Sunday and could play youth players against Crystal Palace on the final day is unnecessary. They surprised me in a positive way. I feared that my changes - instead of being to change Herrera and Mkhitaryan, players who played 90 minutes in Vigo, I feared that I would have to change Mata, Jones and Smalling. The kid [Tanzuabe] was brilliant. Slowly I think we became better and in the second half we controlled the game quite well. His lineups and risk-averse tactics for recent matches against City and Arsenal may have ensured United won't climb above its current position of fifth. "I felt that going in at half-time at 0-0 we would have a good chance to win".

That's despite the optimism of last summer when we were ready to watch Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola renew their La Liga rivalry in the Premier League, only to see two of the game's most high-profile managers spectacularly fluff their lines at Manchester United and Manchester City. United hasn't scored a goal in five away matches against teams in the top six this season, including the loss to Chelsea in the FA Cup.

But his side were well-beaten in north London with skipper Wayne Rooney missing their best chance with the game scoreless. United, on the other hand, will want an away goal this week with hopes of wrapping it up at Old Trafford.
