Mourinho: Europa semi is United's 'most important' match

Critics question Mourinho's negative approach

Critics question Mourinho's negative approach

I don't think the other ones (in the top four race), playing one match a week and being in a great situation, I don't think they are going to blow it.

"I leave Highbury they were crying". It is just a shame they have left it so late in the season to show what they are capable of.

"So finally today they sing, they (swing) the scarves - it's nice for them".

"Do you think I enjoy the fact a big club like Arsenal is not winning trophies?" I am not enjoying that, honestly.

"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. And Arsene Wenger is a big manager so my record (in never losing a Premier League game to him) is not normal". "So it's not normal and I really don't care about it".

The Spain global started against the Gunners despite a recent injury problem that looked like it could keep him out for the remainder of the season, and says he felt good.

"The situation is simple - 17 matches in seven weeks with 16 players is impossible".

Taking it further, Mourinho didn't relent on his jibe. "It is not manager against manager".

The day's results enabled Arsenal to close to within seven points of third-place Liverpool, on whom they have two games in hand, beginning with Wednesday's trip to Southampton.

"Now we play Celta Vigo and we need to focus on that from this moment", he told MUTV.

"I see a difference between matches".

Mata's return to the team after spending six weeks on the sidelines was one positive for United at the Emirates Stadium.

"All on the Europa League", Mourinho said, piling the pressure on his players ahead of the second leg of a semifinal that United leads 1-0 against Celta Vigo on Thursday.

Ander Herrera is under no illusions of how important it is for Manchester United to secure Champions League football for next season.

Meanwhile club captain Wayne Rooney said he wants to stay at United, even if the lack of game-time is grating on the club's all-time top scorer.

Carrick can not wait to step out at Old Trafford - a stadium "made for big games" - on Thursday night. "But the best help we can get is by winning our own games".
