Danny Welbeck scores against Manchester United again, restores faith in football

Manchester United's dour unbeaten run came to an end against arch-rivals Arsenal on Sunday, as the Gunners secured a vital 2-0 win to keep their hopes of a top-four finish in the English Premier League alive. I liked individual performances and also collective performances.

"You can not always say to the players "we are all in the same boat and in this together to achieve something" and then you jump out of the boat and say, "it's your fault now", but when it goes well you take the credit".

"We had a bit of luck today with the first goal".

"I can't ask anymore from my players who haven't played a minute for several weeks - Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Juan Mata were all fantastic". In the 14 times that the two have clashed (in Premier League and EFL Cup), Mourinho has won seven times and there have been seven draws. "Everything for Thursday now".

"I left Highbury and they were crying".

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

"They were walking the streets with their head low".

"It was important because we lost at Tottenham - that didn't happen many times", Wenger said. But the best help we can get is by winning our own games.

"A hectic schedule at this stage of the season is normally what you want because it shows that you are still involved in the competitions, so I am not going to speculate on any weakness of Manchester United".

Arsene Wenger's Arsenal side are now sixth in the Premier League table with 60 points from 33 games this season, coming off the back of three wins from their last five.

"I think he did an fantastic job and I think Alexis (Sanchez) knows his name because the kid has played really well and other players were trying to do everything", he said.

One of the players to be rested is expected to be Eric Bailly who, as recently as last week, was one of only two United first team players to have played first team football.

"We had a good spell and took advantage of it with two goals in two minutes and that was the win today".
