Arsene Wenger is still keeping up hopes that Arsenal can qualify for the Champions League next season by finishing in the top four after their 2-0 victory over Manchester United.
Goals from Granit Xhaka and Danny Welbeck in quick succession put the Red Devils to the sword and Wenger was pleased with a “good win”.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Wenger said: “It was a patiently built win where in the first half you could see we were a bit nervous, in the second half we took the edge off and scored the goals. It was a good win.”
On finally beating Jose Mourinho in a Premier League game, Wenger said: “We have had many draws as well and there were some fantastic teams that we played against. It is not manager against manager.”
The Gunners are now just two points behind United with a game in hand, while they trail fourth-placed Manchester City by six points but with a game to spare on Pep Guardiola’s men.
“We still have a mathematical chance but we need some help. But the best help we can get is by winning our own games.”
