Arsene Wenger's final trip to Manchester United as Arsenal manager ended in an agonising defeat after an injury-time victor from Marouane Fellaini.

"I don't know if he is going to be out or if he's not OK", Mourinho said after the match, quoted by Standard Sport.

'I know my quality I know if the ball comes in to the box I can be unsafe, it was a good ball, I tried to flick it, it's good for me and good for the club'.

Mkhitaryan never established himself in 18 months at United and was deemed surplus to requirements by Mourinho in January, setting up a move to Arsenal in a swap deal that saw Alexis Sanchez go the other way. "I will be surprised if I meet him next year".

Ashley Young nearly added an extraordinary second for Jose Mourinho's team when his cross crashed off the outside of the post with keeper David Ospina struggling to get there.

In the emotion of Arsene Wenger's last match in charge of Arsenal at Old Trafford, the opening 15 minutes was largely without incident.

"We won three points that kill the Champions League story".

The injured children are receiving treatment, the propaganda department of Mizhi County in Shaanxi province said on social media. Private gun ownership is strictly prohibited in China so mostly knives and homemade explosives are used in violent crimes.

"It is good to see them in this atmosphere - who can win challenges". But then you always have a question mark as long as you don't see that under pressure in big games.

He floated a cross for substitute Marouane Fellaini to score in stoppage time and win the game.

Plus, the fact that Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho presented the outgoing Gunners boss with a memento was a nice touch.

"Certainly, my successor will watch this game today and hopefully he will come to a positive conclusion for the players because I think for them it is (a case of) can they be part of the future of Arsenal Football Club?"

"Mkhitatryan I took off because he had a little knock on his knee again, the same thing, just looking at him in the dressing room", Wenger said. "It's been a good season for me, I just want to keep working hard and I'm looking forward to next season".

Especially so with his young team - featuring two 20-year-olds and an 18-year-old - doing their best with many senior players rested ahead of the second leg of the Europa League semi-final against Atletico Madrid on Thursday. "For him to be out is not okay; he wants to play all the time, he's never exhausted".
