In overseeing Arsenal's 2-0 win over Manchester United at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon, Arsene Wenger recorded his first ever competitive victory against a Jose Mourinho team.

We have to focus on the remaining fixtures, starting with Thursday's important match: the Europa League semi-final second leg against Celta.

"You can not say that we didn't try to win the game and that's what we will try to do in the remaining three matches in the Premier League".

Mourinho continued: "But today I tried to win. We will try to win our remaining games and maybe we (will finish) in the top four".

I don't think that you could say that we're in a state of euphoria. "We still have the second leg". We are going to try until the end, until the final whistle is blown in the second leg".

Comparing the match to his own playing days, Neville added: "When I played for Manchester United, Arsenal was always our biggest game of the season - the build-up was electric and I felt as if I was going into battle against our greatest rivals". It's the first time I leave Highbury or the Emirates Stadium and they're happy.

"It is not manager against manager", he told Sky Sports.

'Once they went 2-0 up they had no answer and no way of getting out and no idea of how to get a goal back.

"The kid was brilliant", said Mourinho, who asked him to play at right-back instead of his normal position in the centre of defence.

Fellow Argentinean Javier Mascherano agreed a one-year suspended sentence with authorities for tax fraud earlier this year. Neymar and his family are also being investigated in Brazil over alleged irregularities related to the deal.

Gunners manager Arsene Wenger confirmed Xhaka's injury post-match, telling reporters: "He got injured last time and he got a recurrence of that", per the Metro. "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". You think I enjoy the fact that a big club like Arsenal are not winning big trophies? I think he did an fantastic job and I think Alexis [Sanchez] knows his name because the kid really played very well.

"It can help all the young players coming through the system to believe they can do it. Marcus Rashford was an example and now I'm an example, Tim Fosu-Mensah and Scott are examples".

Liverpool are third in the table on 70 points, a point clear of fourth-placed Manchester City, who have a game in hand. We shook hands before the game, we shook hands after the game. We couldn't afford to lose today.
