Mourinho accepts top four finish is impossible

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho resumed his favourite game of Wenger-baiting after his side lost at Emirates Stadium on Sunday

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho resumed his favourite game of Wenger-baiting after his side lost at Emirates Stadium on Sunday

Mourinho has played weakened teams in recent Premier League matches, despite United still being in with a chance of a top-four finish and gaining Champions League qualification via that route. Honestly, I'm not enjoying that.

"It's up to us, we need some luck along the way, but if we win the next four games, I'm convinced that we can do it".

'Arsene Wenger is not a small manager, he's a big manager, to have that record of winning so many matches [against him] is not normal. That is not normal.

"Normally it's win, lose, draw". I really don't care about it today.

However, prior to Sunday's match both teams were seen hugging and sharing a joke with the opposition in the tunnel - something former United player and now pundit Phil Neville criticised following Arsenal's 2-0 win.

There was no way back for United and, for once in a troubled season, the Arsenal fans could relax and forget the will he-won't he concerns about whether manager Arsene Wenger will renew his contract.

Flynn's disclosure, on January 4, was first made to the transition team's chief lawyer, Donald F. And Republican Senator Ben Sasse said yesterday that "there's a lot here that's really scary".

While United remain two points and one place above Arsenal following the loss, they have played a game more than the Gunners.

The victory at the Emirates Stadium keeps sixth-placed Arsenal's hopes of a top-four finish alive, but they are six points adrift of Manchester City, who now occupy the final Champions League qualifying slot, albeit with a game in hand. I left Highbury, they were crying, I left Emirates, they were crying. They were walking in the streets with their heads low. So finally today, they sing.

"I don't think so because I don't think we are playing one match per week", he added.

Manchester United claimed a 1-0 win in Spain last week to put them in the driving seat ahead of tomorrow's semi-final second-leg against Celta Vigo at Old Trafford.

"We had a disappointing result last week and we needed to pick it back up". We all have to play our games. "That's what I've done and when called upon I'll try my best to help the team". "But we didn't win, so it doesn't count as much. I've been at this club 13 years", he said.

While United have struggled in the Premier League this term, Jose Mourinho could end his first season at the club with two major trophies, having already won the EFL Cup. "I don't think we're going to do it".
