From Chelsea's resurgence and Tottenham's impressive title challenge, to Manchester United and Arsenal's struggles to reach the top four, you have called all of the major stories at the top of the Premier League.

Mourinho once labelled Wenger a "specialist in failure" and the United manager believes talk of a truce is unnecessary.

He told reporters: "He doesn't need to [make peace] because there are no problems". I remember that I met him in the corner of the room for the press conferences and we shook hands again.

Wenger has won only one of 15 meetings with a Mourinho team, and even that came in the Community Shield. I am a big boy, I've been in football all my life.

"It's not a problem to go there and attack because at the end of the day I don't think the Man United fans are going to be happy with Man United just sitting back and doing nothing".

"Under him I have been playing regularly, more comfortable and I am feeling important in the team".


A second-half free kick from Manchester United striker Marcos Rashford was enough to give the English football club a 1-0 win away over Celta Vigo in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final here.

Both the Gunners and United are looking to catch Liverpool and Manchester City who are now in third and fourth in the Premier League. For the first time in 40 years, both Manchester United and Arsenal are outside the top-four when they play each other. To make that dream a reality we have to keep everyone motivated and try to overcome what is a great side by making a huge effort. We are going there to fight for a result. I can not do it in another way. "As soon as you are not at your best you can lose". In relation to the Premier League, I think it's too late.

The Portuguese has criticised a number of his players during his maiden campaign at United, with the likes of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial all feeling the public wrath of Mourinho.


The coveted Spain goalkeeper was reduced to a watching brief in Vigo as back-up Sergio Romero produced yet another solid display.

Manchester United are one of the biggest teams around and the only way to beat them is to stick to our identity and play with our hearts.

"When you are at one club for 20 years, it is impossible to have success every single year".
