Pogba produces commanding performance against Celta Vigo

Manchester United's players react after conceding a goal during the English Premier League soccer match between Arsenal and Manchester United at the Emirates stadium in London, Sunday, May 7, 2017.

United were the superior side for much of the contest, with Celta goalkeeper Sergio Alvarez keeping the La Liga side in the tie before halftime with a string of saves to deny Rashford, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Jesse Lingard.

"It's between the two teams", Wenger said.

"He works every day", said Mourinho of the England global.

"We didn't deserve to lose", he said. You think I enjoy that a big club like Arsenal is not winning big trophies? "We had just one blip but overall we look a bit more stable".

The Germany worldwide was spotted kicking doors and swearing at Arsenal staff following their 2-0 defeat at the hands of rivals Tottenham.

It also meant qualifying for the Champions League would be an uphill task for Wenger's side - although this win over United keeps any slim chances alive.

'It was a match between the teams in fifth and sixth place in the Premier League but it felt more like it was ninth versus tenth, in one of those dead rubbers you get at the end of the season, ' Neville wrote in the BBC.

Where he has gambled, however, is relying on winning the Europa League to secure a Champions League qualification spot, rather than achieve it via a top-four finish in the Premier League.

The manager's credit column this season already contains the League Cup, with the Europa League possibly to come.

Mourinho made eight changes from Thursday's 1-0 win over Celta Vigo in the away leg of United's Europa League semi-final, notably awarding a full debut to 19-year-old defender Axel Tuanzebe.

Rashford also had to be substituted, but Mourinho said that was a result of a problem he carried into the game. Wenger had failed to win any of his previous 14 competitive clashes against Mourinho dating back to 2004, with his only victory over his old rival coming in the 2015 Community Shield when the Portuguese coach was in charge of Chelsea.

"Let's hope Old Trafford wants us to win because when Old Trafford wants it, we win".

Mourinho aimed a subtle dig at Wenger in his post-match television interview, insisting that Gunners fans could finally go home with a smile on their face after so many years of pain when facing him.
