The win also takes Arsenal within two points of fifth-placed United, who stay four points behind City having played the same number of games as their local rivals.

He had never lost a competitive game against rival coach Arsene Wenger in nearly 13 years.

I left Highbury, they were crying, I left Emirates, they were crying. Everything was completely different about Sunday's game at Emirates Stadium, and it summed up where both teams are at right now.

Spain worldwide Herrera believes it is imperative his side secure their place in the final, as they bid to move a step closer to Champions League qualification, although he knows they will not have it all their own way against Celta.

Asked what he thought of Arsenal finally tasting victory against him, Mourinho said: "It's a big club".

Congratulations on your inconsequential victory, I hope it brings you great joy for many years to come.

"Arsene Wenger is not a small manager, he's a big manager, to have that record of winning so many matches is not normal". It's not normal. I really don't care about it.

And Mourinho again highlighted his supporters' efforts ahead of the crucial continental clash, lamenting a lack of atmosphere at their previous Europa League game against Anderlecht, in comparison to their recent Premier League win over champions-elect Chelsea. During the game I didn't like what I never like - he puts too much pressure on the fourth official all the time.

The England striker had scored against his former club before, in an FA Cup win at Old Trafford, and helped Wenger claim his first triumph against adversary Jose Mourinho in 16 competitive fixtures. "Impossible. I don't think so", said Mourinho. "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 told Sky Sports.

All round a good win against a Manchester United side who clearly have one eye on the Europa League. The Arsenal team managed to win comfortably by a margin of two goals whereas Man United failed to score any goal. "It doesn't matter what happened before, how big the matches we played before".

For so long a key player for club and country, this season the 31-year-old has found himself in the unusual position of scrapping for a starting role.

'On one hand, I was back on the pitch after several weeks out, and I felt good physically, which is something positive because the end of the season is going to be thrilling.
