  • David De Gea oozes “greatness” says Man Utd teammate Ander Herrera

It seems as though Arsene Wenger and José Mourinho have been at odds with each other forever.

The pair frequently clashed with Mourinho often appearing to relish baiting Wenger, who he has previously referred to as a "voyeur" and "a specialist in failure".

Speaking ahead of Sunday's clash at Old Trafford, Wenger is quoted by Arsenal's official website as saying: "Of course [it will be a little bit unusual to face Alexis]".

"Then I arrive [at Chelsea], the next few years it was with them [battles for the title]".

Mkhitaryan, who helped inspire Manchester United to Europa League glory last season, could now be part of the squad that travels to the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid next week for the second leg if he gets through the trip to Old Trafford unscathed.

Arsenal's hopes of sending outgoing manager Arsene Wenger off with a trophy suffered a major blow as the Gunners could only draw 1-1 with 10-man Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their Europa League semifinal on Thursday.

DE GEA NOT GOING ANYWHERE When Jose was asked by a reporter if he thought there was going to be more speculation about De Gea possibly leaving in the summer the boss replied: "No chance".


In light of the occasion, Mourinho has chose to drop the usual fireworks and admitted he isn't proud of some of their bust-ups in the past.

"Do I regret the little negative episodes?" "There are little things where it would be obviously be better without them, some gestures, some words would be better without it", said Mourinho.

"I feel we produced the performance we wanted to produce, but the result is not in line with the performance", said Wenger.

Mourinho added: "They pushed us to the limits, the two matches we played, not at the Emirates, but at incredible old stadium, were unforgettable". I think Manchester United fans know that, until 2004 for about a decade, it was between United and Arsenal. I arrive and for the next couple of years was with them - [Dennis] Bergkamp, Thierry [Henry] and [Sol] Campbell - an fantastic team, so again, thank you very much for that. For the next couple of years [our rivalry] was with them, (Dennis) Bergkamp, Thierry (Henry), (Sol) Campbell, incredible team. They pushed us to the limits.

Speaking ahead of the clubs' latest Premier League meeting, which takes place at Old Trafford on Sunday, Mourinho said: "We had big matches, big fights, so thank you so much for that".

Mourinho claims that he always knew that Sanchez would come good, even though he maintains that United will not see the best of him until next season.
