After an evenly matched first half in which the two teams traded blows, Arsenal stepped up a gear in the second half and scored two goals in three minutes. Overall you play Man United, another big game, you can not afford to lose today.
"In football you get criticised if you are sent off", the 24-year-old said. "It's my style of play and nobody can make me change that", he added. Marcus Rashford was the player who found the breakthrough in Spain and it will be the young England centre-forward that will carry the main threat in the second-leg. "I try to do my best for the team".
Europe's secondary competition is the only major trophy to elude the Red Devils in their history and winning the trophy also represents their best avenue into next season's Champions League.
Arsene Wenger claims that his Arsenal side's 2-0 victory over Manchester United on Sunday night was not an individual triumph against Jose Mourinho.
"However he's done that, you've got to look and learn from it".
"Yes, Arsenal won, to end United's long unbeaten run, but nobody really cared - including United manager Jose Mourinho". I am thinking about the club and I am thinking about the players.
"We have had many draws (against Mourinho) as well and there were some fantastic teams that we played against".
"We always have hope - hope dies last", Xhaka told British media. Today I tried to win.
United remain fifth, one place above Arsenal, but have played a game more.
On May 11th, Manchester United will welcome Celta Vigo to Old Trafford of their Europa League semi final.
After the defeat, Mourinho said: "It's impossible to finish in the top four".
We can expect Vigo to play their strongest side at Old Trafford, and since they are a goal down, they could easily throw caution to the wind. Celta Vigo have to get the balance between defending and attacking ideal if they are to go through.
For the record, that potential number of matches for April and May is only 16, including a possible Europa League final.
The experienced midfielder fondly recalled home Champions League wins against Barcelona and Roma and clearly believes United will soon be back at European's top table under Mourinho.
"So, when we lost these players in a period of 17 matches in seven weeks, it was an impossible job".
