Arsenal vs United: Five Talking Points

Jose Mourinho cut a worried figure as he arrived at Carrington amid United's injury crisis

Rashford fizzed in a stunning free-kick in the 1-0 win at Celta Vigo in the first leg of a Europa League semi-final on Thursday, to put Jose Mourinho's side on the brink of the final.

But with both sides struggling to secure a top-four finish in the Premier League - and eyeing silverware elsewhere - the order of the day ahead of the contest at the Emirates Stadium has been contrition. "We are going there to fight for a result". Regardless of whether they win the Europa League, I can not imagine United would want to throw away all their season's work in the league.

Speaking to the Daily Mail about Mourinho's claim that Manchester United will field an under-strength team at Arsenal, Keown said: "I would take Jose Mourinho's words with a large pinch of salt!"

"I think the last match against Swansea was our last chance to fight for top four, so I am going to rest players", he added, referring to United's 1-1 home draw last weekend.

As a outcome Mourinho has indicated that he could rest some key members of his squad, but Keown is struggling to believe that Mourinho would give Arsenal an advantage in the race to secure a top four finish in the Premier League.

"He doesn't need to make peace", Mourinho said when told that Wenger had expressed willingness to bury the hatchet with him. We have got the belief and the manager believes in us to get there. I'd be surprised if Mesut Ozil caused any of United's players a moment's concern.

The discussion highlights just how impressive Rashford has been at club level and the 19-year-old is sure to have a key role in United ending the season successfully.

"I feel good, but you have to be careful as well".

"We have no choice".

'They give us energy, so we need them - they always help us.

United remain four points adrift of fourth-placed Manchester City with three games remaining, including a trip to second-placed Tottenham Hotspur.

Swiss midfielder Granit Xhaka is expected to miss out for Arsenal after sustaining a kick to the calf at Spurs, but centre-back Shkodran Mustafi could return after a thigh injury.

Small wonder Mourinho and Wenger are not snarling.
