Mourinho Unhappy With United's Missed Chances Despite Win, Praises Rashford

GETTY Graeme Souness has slammed Ander Herrera

Arsene Wenger claims that his Arsenal side's 2-0 victory over Manchester United on Sunday night was not an individual triumph against Jose Mourinho. Tuanzebe recognised he'd made an impression on those watching, pleased that "I seemed to do that quite well" but at the end of the game "we didn't win" so, therefore, he admitted his own performance really doesn't count for much in the end.

"So finally they sing, they [swing] the scarves - it's nice for them".

United have never won the Europa League and are bidding to reach a first continental final since their 3-1 loss to Barcelona at Wembley in the deciding match of the 2010-11 Champions League. You think I enjoy a big club like Arsenal not winning big trophies? We lost because we didn't score and we had great chances to score before them.

United remain four points adrift of fourth-placed Manchester City with three games remaining, including a trip to second-placed Tottenham Hotspur. It's the first time I leave and they're happy.

"I tell them we really need them to create a good atmosphere, a hard atmosphere for the opponents, who can push us to be in the final".

"It's a big club".

And Herrera again played a key role in helping his side get over the line and the midfielder credited Mourinho for helping him feel more important at Old Trafford this season. It's more important than finishing fourth.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has praised the efforts of Marcus Rashford, whose second-half goal has given United the advantage heading into next week's Europa League semi-final second leg. Overall pleasing, but the question is, how elusive will that top four spot be? It's a massive opportunity for us to win the European final.

The United boss, who joked that he welcomed the chance to end Arsenal fans tears at his hands after the defeat, insisted that there was nothing special about his relationship with Wenger. We still need Liverpool and Manchester City to slip up but stranger things have happened.

The very next game they travelled to London to take on Chelsea, where they unleashed an outrageous 16 shots. but still lost 4-0.
