Jose Mourinho resumes rivalry with Arsene Wenger



Arsenal will also still be without midfielder Santi Cazorla, who last featured in the Champions League win over Ludogorets in October.

Rooney played in England's 3-0 World Cup qualifying win over Scotland last week, but was withdrawn from the squad due to a knee injury and missed Tuesday's 2-2 draw with Spain.

Wenger was also asked if he would shake hands with Mourinho after the game and insisted he would have no problems greeting the Manchester United manager.

"He's ready. What happened in the national team happened in the national team". What happens there for good, for bad.

"Chris Smalling I don't comment". But other time, there are injuries frustrations, they didn't play etc.

"You can not ask [about Smalling]", Mourinho said.

Mourinho had appeared to criticise Smalling and Luke Shaw in the wake of the 3-1 win at Swansea City 12 days ago by suggesting neither player had been prepared to risk their fitness, but the Portuguese would only offer an update on Shaw's condition.

"What I will consider is the risk of injury, because he played while recovering from a hamstring injury", he continued.

"I am saying that he is my player, a young player with potential".

Manchester United and Arsenal games are always eagerly anticipated - but this time around the player I'm looking forward to seeing most is Marcus Rashford.

The duo have endured a testy relationship over the years - a period that Mourinho has dominated, losing just one of 15 previous encounters in all competitions.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho claimed on Friday he is not shown the same respect as his Arsenal counterpart Arsene Wenger, ahead of their Premier League showdown on Saturday.

Mourinho said his track record of winning league titles at every top club he has managed - FC Porto, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Inter Milan - demands that he gets more time.

"But they were really exciting games and things like the incidents in the tunnel would get you massively pumped for them".

"Our team's results, our CV, if you want to go to that direction".

"In the Premier League, going just on the Premier League, tomorrow is a match between the two managers with the best record".

"Sir Alex Ferguson isn't here anymore". United 0-1 Arsenal, 14 March 1998, Premier League This crucial game reopened the title race when Marc Overmars's 79th-minute goal left the Gunners just six points behind the pacesetting Reds with two months left in the season. The German might think that as big a legend as Gerrard was, he belongs to Liverpool's past and that to achieve what he wants this season, he needs to concentrate on this current crop of exciting players who look like they could achieve something special. This time a year ago, Sanchez picked up a hamstring injury following a grueling run of back-to-back games for club and country and ended up missing the next two months, which proved to be a huge blow to Arsenal's title hopes.
