Mkhitaryan singled out by Mourinho in Man United training

Jose Mourinho did not care about Manchester United's defeat to Arsenal, according to the club's former defender Phil Neville.

The victor of the Europa League earns a place in next season's Champions League, increasing its significance for a United side that has only played in Europe's top competition for one of the last three seasons.

Mourinho does now have more options at his disposal, but he has already suggested that he will include a number of youngsters in his Premier League plans if United are able to reach the Europa League final.

"I'm personally desperate to get to the final and to try and win it", Carrick told UEFA's official website. In the second half, I thought we played really well and I thought we saw the game out well.

"I left Highbury, they were crying, I left Emirates, they were crying". So finally today, they sing. Honestly, I'm not enjoying that.

"Arsene Wenger is not a small manager". He's a big manager. "I really don't believe". It might be a little more light hearted this time round, but don't expect it to last too long...

"For Celta it's, in their words, "the most important match of their history". They were walking the streets with heads low.

The money United stand to receive will diminish the impact of failing to play in this season's Champions League, but the earnings on offer in that competition continue to dwarf those in the Europa League.

United made eight changes from their Europa League semi-final first leg against Celta Vigo last week in the 2-0 loss to Arsenal on Sunday, a result which put a dent in their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League via the top four.

"Hopefully we can get that confidence to take into the final".

However Coach of the loosing side Man United, Jose Mourinho, claims to be happy for the winning club.

Celta's Europa League commitments have had a striking impact on their league form, largely due to coach Eduardo Berizzo's determination to rest players.

"Three points was all we wanted and I thought it was quite convincing in the end". Realistically it's going to be hard to do it through the league.

"But it doesn't matter what, no regrets, We are giving everything we can - the players, myself, everyone that works around".

Sixth-placed Arsenal remain an outsider in the race for a top-four Champions League spot, although Liverpool's goalless draw with Southampton at Anfield allowed them to close the gap on Jurgen Klopp's side to seven points, with two games in hand.
