Celta Vigo star John Guidetti slams Manchester United tactics

It would be wrong to say all of United's players are fresh, though, which is why Mourinho will make changes at Arsenal.

"In the last match at Old Trafford, we shook hands before, after, I remember that I still met him in the corridor for the press conferences and we shook hands again", added Mourinho.

"Sometimes the training session finished and he keeps working with my assistant", said Mourinho. When there is peace, we don't have to have problem.

The United boss was pleased with the first-leg performance in Spain but the narrow 1-0 win was not enough to kill the tie in a competition that offers both a trophy and Champions League return.

"We are going to try [to win on Sunday]".

"Of course every big game boosts your confidence", said Wenger, who is still to make an announcement about his Arsenal future.

It is also why this 1-0 win felt like something of another signpost night in his career, as if he'd taken a metaphorical stride forward as a player, to go with all of the exhilarating strides on the pitch.

Celta Vigo had suddenly upped the speed of their game shortly after half-time of this Europa League semi-final first leg at the Balaidos, and looked like they could be starting to cause Jose Mourinho's side some real problems.

"But it is impossible, I can not do it in another way".

The one question out of this is whether his evolution as a player will be affected by United's transfer plans, given that Mourinho wants to bring in two forwards.

"I am going to change my team to play against Arsenal, so I think (Wenger) will be really happy with me", Mourinho told reporters.

The Portuguese believes drawing at home to Swansea last weekend meant they blew their "last chance" to break into the Champions League places, but Lingard suggests the manager is displaying a different attitude within the dressing room despite their precarious position.

"I don't like to say this competition is for that goalkeeper, this competition for another one", Mourinho said.

"Last year we scored three goals away against Atletico Madrid to go through (in the Copa del Rey) and their defence is very strong, and this year we won 2-1 at the Bernabeu and they are nearly in the Champions League final".

After Leicester's elimination at the quarter-final stage to Atletico Madrid, United's hopes of direct entry to the group stage was reduced to a third place finish in the league.

"Sergio also played one match in the League Cup, David played in the other matches and in the final".

"We have great goalkeepers, and (against) anyone in the world I trust completely".
