The Portuguese had already taken aim at the Frenchman in his TV interview and further questioned his adversary in an explosive press conference

Jose Mourinho has taken aim at Arsene Wenger in his post-match press conference following Manchester United's defeat to Arsenal.

The loss was Wenger's first victory over the Portuguese in the Premier League at the 13th time of asking, with Granit Xhaka and Danny Welbeck helping to secure a 2-0 win.

Mourinho's TV interview dig at Wenger

Mourinho aimed a subtle dig at Wenger in his post-match television interview, insisting that Gunners fans could finally go home with a smile on their face after so many years of pain when facing him.

And the United manager went one further in his post-match press conference, insisting that, in what appeared a clear dig at Wenger, he does not enjoy seeing the north Londoners fail to win big trophies.

He said: "The Arsenal fans are happy and I'm happy for them. It's the first time I leave Highbury or the Emirates Stadium and they're happy.

"I left Highbury, they were crying, I left Emirates Stadium, they were crying. They were walking in the streets with their heads low. So finally today they sing, they wave their scarves. It's nice for them.

"It's a big club. You think I enjoy that a big club like Arsenal is not winning big trophies? I'm not enjoying that, honestly. Today I tried to win. We lost."

Mourinho also expressed his opinion that is not "normal" for him to have such a commanding record over the Frenchman, adding that he feels Wenger puts too much pressure on fourth officials.

Mourinho right to play his reserves

He continued: "I think Arsene Wenger is not a small manager, he's a big manager. So to have that record of winning so many matches, to not lose so many matches, it's something that's not normal. Normal is win, lose, draw. I really don't care about it [the record against Wenger].

"Today, no problem. We shook hands before and after the game. And during the game I didn't like what I never like, he puts too much pressure on the fourth official all the time."
