It looked like Manchester United would beat Arsenal on Saturday, but a late Olivier Giroud goal earned the Gunners a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford. The result left Jose Mourinho upset after the match.
“We should have won the game comfortably,” the Red Devils' boss said.
“For us, it feels like a defeat. For Arsenal, it feels like a victory.”

That's all fair. The team that concedes late always feels hard done. After all, if they had held on just a bit longer they'd have three points, and for a Manchester United team that finds themselves six points out of fourth place, they can't afford to give away wins.
Of course, the other subplot to any match between these two teams now is Mourinho vs. Arsene Wenger. Mourinho has never lost to Wenger in a competitive match, a streak that is now at 14 matches. And even in lamenting a disappointing draw, Mourinho made sure everyone knew how he completely dominates Wenger.
“Finally, I lost to Arsenal,” Mourinho added.
Mourinho never passes up a chance to rub anything in Wenger's face. Not even in disappointment. And as long as he's undefeated against Wenger, why should he?
