Jose Mourinho slated for Mata and Mkhitaryan use

Arsene Wenger got the better of managerial rival Jose Mourinho for the first time in a competitive game as Arsenal beat Manchester United 2-0 in the Premier League on Sunday to keep alive its Champions League qualification hopes.

The semi-final second leg will be United's chance to go one step closer to winning the Europa League and qualifying for the Champions League, and Mata wants to be part of it.

In 12 previous Premier League games against Mourinho the Arsenal boss had been unable to mastermind a victory, suffering five defeats and picking up seven draws. 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. I didn't give them the match, I tried to win, but we lost.

United suffered a 2-0 defeat at the Emirates to leave their hopes of finishing in the top four extremely hard, with just three games in the league season remaining. "Collectively they play well", Wenger said ahead of the coming trip to St Mary's Stadium. "I think it will be nearly impossible to qualify through the Premier League", Mourinho said.

"We have still a chance mathematically, and we need some help as well from the teams around us", he added.

"They had luck with that first goal".

Mourinho had a different take on the match at Arsenal.

Mourinho told reporters: "Arsene Wenger is not a small manager, he is a big manager, so to have that record of winning so many matches and losing so many matches is something that is not normal". I'm happy for Danny.

"It is the first time I saw them [the Arsenal fans] smile, I saw them enjoy [it] and they deserve [it] because they are an fantastic club and incredible fans [who] also deserve some joy". "We're having a season where things have been a bit more hard but I'm convinced that in the coming years we can show another side".

After the defeat, Mourinho said: "It's impossible to finish in the top four". This is a phase where we have to win every game, which we know.

"We didn't deserve to lose", he said.
