    MANCHESTER, April 30 — Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho hopes he gets the chance to face Arsene Wenger again after the outgoing Arsenal manager’s final w88 visit to Old Trafford as Gunners’ boss ended in a 2-1 defeat yesterday. Wenger was greeted by former United boss Alex Ferguson and Mourinho before kick-off and even presented with a glass momento. However, Wenger was left empty-handed when it came to points as defeat left sixth-placed Arsenal mathematically out of the race for a top-four finish.

    Marouane Fellaini rose highest to flick home the winner customer service w88 in stoppage time after Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s second-half strike against his former club had cancelled out Paul Pogba’s early opener. “I hope I play against him again,” said Mourinho, who has a history of spats with Wenger, most famously describing the Frenchman as a “specialist in failure” for his inability to win the Premier League since 2003/04.

    “I hope that can happen again. If not in the Premier League, who knows (where) we can have a big match somewhere?” United have now sealed their place in w88 bonus the Champions League next season and moved closer to their target of finishing at least second best to champions Manchester City by opening a five-point gap on Liverpool.

    “Ok progress at many levels, but (it’s) not enough to be first instead of second and not enough to win the Champions League instead of the Europa League,” added Mourinho. “It’s enough to finish second, to be stable, to win some trophies, to reach some finals, but we need more.” ‘Classy’ gesture Ferguson told the United website ahead of the game that his clashes for mansion88 many years with Wenger’s strongest Arsenal sides over a decade ago “made the Premier League.”

    But it was a sign of how far Arsenal have fallen that Wenger made eight changes from the side that drew 1-1 with Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final on Thursday as he had already given up hope of a top-four finish. “It goes to show you, once you are not a danger any more, people love you,” said Wenger on his fond farewell from the United fans.

    “I am thankful to Manchester United. They had a nice gesture before the game, it was the first time I got a trophy before the game. It was very classy from them. “I want to have a glass of wine now with Sir Alex because he has always good wine.” Alexis Sanchez became the latest of a number of leading Arsenal players to leave towards the end of Wenger’s reign in search of more success and more money in January.
