Wenger ready to make peace with Mourinho

"But I think one explanation why Mourinho is successful in bigger games generally is that he appears to demonstrate an understanding of the strengths of the opposition and the strengths of his own team, using that information to determine his tactics, philosophies and psychological approach going into such big games".
Mourinho, after the game in Vigo, said: "He doesn't need to say he is ready to make peace".
I'm not confident United will make the top four.
"The long-running feud between Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger inevitably spices things up, not to mention United desperately needing the three points if they want to remain serious about a top four place".
Keane believes Mourinho is right to seek the continental trophy, which would see Champions League football return to Old Trafford.
"We've got to win the games and hopefully we beat Arsenal and can concentrate on the next game".
Mourinho overtly said yesterday at a news conference that he will prioritize the Europa League over Premier League competition, and thus could rest some, if not many, of his starters during the run-in. I think he is right.
Speaking of Shaw in April, he said: "I can not compare the way he trains and commits, the focus, the ambition". When there is peace, we don't have to have problem.
"For me personally Jose has a lot of importance because he has played me regularly and has made me feel important to the team".
"So, we have to be human with the players, we have to be sensible and common sense in relation to our situation in the Premier League".
'I am a big boy, I'm in football all my life - I know a problem on the pitch the next day is not a problem at all. Playing Arsenal away from home is always going to be tough, but I don't think any present United XI needs to feel vulnerable against them.
"I disagree", said Brennan in response to Meagher.
"We have two matches in one week against Celta".
Mourinho has hinted he may field a weakened side in the Premier League, according to James Ducker of the Daily Telegraph: "Mourinho confirmed David De Gea, rested for Sergio Romero against Celta, will start in goal against Arsenal but Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Juan Mata, Michael Carrick and Anthony Martial, none of whom started on Thursday, are also likely to be drafted in".
"I don't like that complete separation".
If Arsenal lose on Sunday then their top four hopes are all but over and the focus will switch to the FA Cup final against Chelsea on May 27 and, once again, to the decision on Wenger's future by the Frenchman and the board. "We have great goalkeepers and [against] anyone in the world I trust [them] completely".
