"For sure, it has to be four wins, and on top of that we need some help", Wenger told Arsenal Player. Do not think that I am happy that they are not winning trophies. I leave Highbury (Arsenal's old ground), they were crying. I'm happy for them. "They deserve it because they're an wonderful club and fantastic fans also deserve some joy". Arsenal's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, top, jumps on Manchester United's Jesse Lingered during the English Premier League soccer match between Arsenal and Manchester United at the Emirates stadium in London, Sunday, May 7, 2017.

His importance to the Red Devils was underlined during the 2-0 win over Chelsea last month as he carried out strict instructions to man mark Eden Hazard out of the game to perfection and Neville admits he's been proven wrong by the midfielder.

But the best chance of the half fell to Wayne Rooney, who pounced on a defensive error before being denied by Petr Cech. Arsenal are probably having their worst ever season under Arsene Wenger. We're delighted for ourselves but also for the fans because they deserved that today, to go home with a smile on their faces.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho hailed the return of injured trio Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Juan Mata, with the defensive duo lasting 90 minutes and playmaker Mata coming off with five minutes left. Arsene Wenger is not a small manager, he is a big manager so to have that record of winning so many matches and losing so many matches is something that is not normal.

Proceedings had long since lost any real tempo, though, and Arsenal comfortably held on to move to within two points of United and six of Manchester City, while the Gunners still have a game in hand on both.

"That is what we're going to try to do in the remaining three matches in the Premier League but, obviously, everything for next Thursday". Alexis Sanchez did well to find Aaron Ramsey, but his cross-goal shot was saved by David De Gea.

Three minutes later, Welbeck doubled Arsenal's lead from a flawless Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain cross.

With Mourinho prioritising the Europa League semi-final second leg against Celta Vigo in midweek, United, who hold a 1-0 first-leg lead, fielded a much-changed side in north London.

The Arsenal star's aggression has garnered criticism after seeing red twice in his debut season as a Gunner.
