Man Utd coach Mourinho admits winning Europa League is top priority now

Arsene Wenger

You think I enjoy that a big club like Arsenal is not winning big trophies?

"We always have hope (of finishing in the top four) - hope dies last".

United are nearly sure to go straight into the group stage of next season's Champions League by winning the Europa League whereas they would have to go through the tricky final playoff round if they qualified by finishing fourth in the league. At the end of the day, that's what I make of it.

The Red Devils lost 2-0 to Arsenal at the Emirates this past weekend, and it was another match between Wenger and Mourinho that was not short of drama. But watching Mourinho afterwards, it was probably the first time in about six months that I have seen him relaxed and smiling. I am not enjoying that.

Arsene Wenger finally conceded before the match that Olivier Giroud's presence in the starting eleven does have a negative effect on how the team play, with the team going more direct to Giroud rather than playing shorter passes.

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.

Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka could miss Wednesday's Premier League game at Southampton due to a recurring ankle injury, manager Arsene Wenger said after his side's 2-0 win over Manchester United on Sunday. It's not normal, and I really don't care about it.

Jose Morinho went "a step too far" by changing eight players to his Manchester United side ahead of Sunday's defeat to Arsenal, according to Gary Neville.

"It is impossible to finish in the top four".

"I don't think so, for two reasons".

The money United stand to receive will diminish the impact of failing to play in this season's Champions League, but the earnings on offer in that competition continue to dwarf those in the Europa League. At the Emirates, Mourinho gave a Premier League debut to Axel Tuanzebe, saying he was delighted by the 19-year-old's performance.
