Arsene Wenger finally gets Premier League win over Jose Mourinho

But Wenger, who welcomes United to the Emirates for a crucial Premier League fixture on Sunday, says this style is not always effective.

A damaging 2-0 loss to neighbours Tottenham last weekend means he will finish beneath Arsenal's main rivals in the table for the first time since he took charge. Because there have been more bad games than good ones in the last few weeks and they are always capable of abandoning ship disastrously, as they did at West Bromwich Albion or Crystal Palace.

Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Juan Mata had played a total of four minutes' football between them since March, while Tuanzebe was thrown in for his full debut at right-back and the increasingly peripheral Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial were also given starts.

Paul Pogba is convinced Manchester United can make the top four - despite Jose Mourinho's insistence they have already blown it.

Granit Xhaka, with a deflected shot, and former United player Danny Welbeck, with a bullet header, scored goals in a four-minute span early in the second half to end United's 25-match unbeaten in the league dating to October.

Wenger, whose Arsenal face United at the Emirates on Sunday, said: "You can not always say to the players: 'We are all on the same boat, ' and: 'We are all in this together, ' and then you jump out of the boat and say: 'It's your fault now.' But when it goes well you take credit".

The pair have endured a fractious relationship over the years, and in their previous 15 competitive meetings Wenger had never beaten a Mourinho team, with his only victory coming in the Community Shield in 2015.

The teenager was the star of the show once again as his free-kick earned Manchester United a 1-0 win over Celta Vigo in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final clash on Thursday. The return leg against the Spaniards is next Thursday and Mourinho has suggested he will rest key players at Arsenal as he aims to win the Europa League. You think I enjoy a big club like Arsenal not winning big trophies? Even the timing of the goals, separated by three minutes roughly 10 minutes after the restart, was nearly exactly the same as at White Hart Lane last week.

"He started the game with a little problem and with all the running he was feeling it".

"We still have a mathematical chance but we need some help", Wenger said. "The first goal was quite lucky and the second goal was a great goal". "It is half-time, they are leading 1-0 and we have to go out and make the second half count".

"No one thinks we can keep battling till this moment".

"Sunday plays David. We have two fantastic goalkeepers, we have a third goalkeeper that I think will be the best Portuguese goalkeeper of the next generation (Joel Pereira)".

"With such disappointing home form, United can have no complaints if they fall short, although Mourinho will no doubt be on hand to offer a conspiracy theory".
