GETTY Jose Mourinho has said getting into the top four is now impossible

"Arsene Wenger is not a small manager, he's a big manager".

He added: "It was an important win against United".

"Normally it's win, lose, draw". "I really don't believe".

"Today, no problem (with the scoreline)", he said, according Foottheball.

Arsenal suffered a damaging 3-0 defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace last month and Wenger made a decision to switch to a back three for the away game at Middlesborough which ended in a 1-2 win. "He puts too much pressure on the fourth official every time". "I am thinking about the club and the players", Mourinho said. "That's what he does in big games and I don't think, no matter who he manages, it will ever change". "It is not manager against manager".

A 2-0 defeat against Arsenal at Emirates Stadium on Sunday ensured United have now drawn a blank in away games against Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal, with Mourinho's less than ambitious tactics in all of those matches coming under fire from Sky Sports pundit Carragher.

"The team that Mourinho fielded on Sunday should be more than capable of beating Arsenal, and we all saw what happened there".

State Dept.: Assad using crematorium to hide atrocities
But they also said Russian Federation and Iran are aware of the facility, and accused them of complicity in Assad's war crimes. Satellite images provided by the State Department shows a prison complex that has been modified to host a crematorium.

"I see a difference between games", Mourinho told a news conference. It was very nice.

The Gunners can move to within three points of current fourth-placed Manchester City with a win over the Saints in midweek after seemingly being out of the race for Champions League football just a couple of weeks ago.

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

"Impossible", he said when asked about United's hopes of finishing in the top four. Because I don't think the others, playing one match per week and being in a great situation, are going to blow it.

"We must play Thursday (against Celta Vigo) and then we go again against Tottenham, but we can not go with everything against Tottenham", the United manager said. When you don't go with everything, it's more hard. We needed to rest players.

The Red Devils can still secure a top-four finish in the Premier League this season, but a 2-0 defeat to Arsenal means their fate is no longer in their own hands.

The Spanish side need to win at Old Trafford in the second leg of their semi-final tie on Thursday night to have any chance of reaching the final and Manchester United have not lost a game at home since September.
