Arsenal 1-1 Atletico Madrid: 'Worst possible result for Arsenal' - Wenger

Mourinho suggests United were 'not prepared to win&apos before his arrival

Arsene Wenger has admitted that it is "strange" seeing Alexis Sanchez in a Manchester United shirt ahead of the Chilean forward's first meeting with former club Arsenal. "100 per cent, yes", Pires told beIN SPORTS.

On Friday Mourinho said many of his antics should be seen in the context of trying to challenge Arsenal's position as England's leading team.

The visitors were on the back foot for nearly the entire game after defender Sime Vrsaljko was dismissed for two yellow cards in the first 10 minutes.

"I hope he has a good reaction - if not good then not bad at all, and from our club he is going to feel the respect we have".

There was a highly-charged atmosphere for Wenger's penultimate home game in charge and the hosts were given plenty of encouragement early on, even when still up against Atletico's full complement.

Atletico retreated ever deeper towards their own goal after the break and were finally punished on the hour mark when Wilshere's deep cross found Lacazette rising above Lucas Hernandez to head in his seventh goal in seven games.

"Not because he's my team-mate but because of the saves he makes, the points he wins us. We expect a euphoric atmosphere in the Wanda Metropolitano". "But they couldn't score with a combination, they could only do it with a long ball, so we have to look at ourselves".

He confessed: "It was a 90 minutes in which my body was filled with really strong emotions". "They stood firm for eighty-something minutes". For the players, better than for me because they had more time off than I did but that's just the nature of the job and I think they deserve that little rest.

This was Wenger's final home European tie in charge after he announced last week he will step down in the summer after over 21 years in charge but it ended in now familiar disappointment. "Yes, and I'm sure he does too". That's why he was chased by many teams, I believe, and why we fought to have him here.

He joked: "I got always a very good reception!" The majority of them, after the last match [against Chelsea in the FA Cup final], they will go to their national teams and to the World Cup, so to have a couple of days without football, I think it was nice for them.

That second wind in Manchester coincided with Arsenal's move to a new stadium and the financial constraints that came with it for a number of years.
