My Wenger unbeaten streak was not normal, says Mourinho

My Wenger unbeaten streak was not normal, says Mourinho

I left Highbury they were crying, I left the Emirates, they were crying. I leave the Emirates, they were crying, walking the streets with heads low. So finally today, they sing, they (twirl) scarves. "It's nice for them".

The former Chelsea boss said: "It's a big club". I don't enjoy. But today I tried to win. I felt that going in at half-time at 0-0 we would have a good chance to win the game. He's a big manager.

"Arsene Wenger 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".

"Normally it's win, lose, draw".

"I'm not really a fan of talking about myself too much, maybe others should judge (how my first season has gone)".

He added that there were no problems with Wenger this time round as the pair have clashed on the touchline previously, although he did complain about the Frenchman constantly pressurising the fourth official. Addressing the press before Mourinho, Wenger had played down the significance of his first league victory over the Portuguese. When we lost these players in a period of 17 matches in seven week, it was the impossible job.

Although Mata could not help United to beat Arsenal, he was pleased to get a game under his belt ahead of an important run of games coming up for the Red Devils.




"It's what we needed - we needed three points to start momentum", he said.

"I see a difference between games", Mourinho told a news conference.

Mourinho has already led United to victory in the League Cup, but they lie four points off the Champions League places with three matches of the Premier League season remaining.

Instead, following Thursday's 1-0 Europa League semi-final first-leg win over Celta Vigo in Spain, their attention is focused on winning Europe's second-tier tournament, with the associated prize of Champions League qualification. "So we have to fight hard tomorrow". When you don't go with everything, it's more hard.

Aaron Ramsey gave a man of the match display in the Arsenal midfield and went close to opening the scoring in the first half with a shot that was well saved by David De Gea.

United are facing the prospect of finishing outside the top four of the Premier League for the second consecutive season - they finished fifth under Louis van Gaal in the previous campaign.
