A brilliant second-half equaliser from Henrikh Mkhitaryan, after Paul Pogba had given United an early lead, nearly capped an impressive display from a youthful Arsenal, before substitute Fellaini's late header.

A late Marouane Fellaini header condemned Wenger and a second-string Arsenal side to defeat in the Frenchman's last visit to Old Trafford, after Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan had traded goals earlier in the match.

"We killed the Champions League story, we are there in the top four, but we still need four points to finish second".

Yet though the victory put United in pole position for a second-place finish, with 77 points with three games remaining, Romelu Lukaku's foot injury in the second half is of concern with the FA Cup final on May 19th.

But Marouane Fellaini had other ideas and grabbed a late victor to steal the three points as Wenger left Manchester, possibly for the last time as a manager, empty handed.

Wenger then posed for pictures with Mourinho and Ferguson before former Arsenal ace Alexis Sanchez shook his hand.

"Until now, I haven't lost one second thinking about replacing him because I think he will stay".

Wenger said he had not expected such a positive response from the United fans ahead of the match, although some home supporters later mocked him by singing "Arsene Wenger, we want you to stay" during the game. "I have come here for a long, long time and next year somebody else will be on the bench and will get a very hostile reception as well, don't worry!"

We were together a little bit before the game and I'm happy with the class my club showed towards him. With neither side having much left to play for in the Premier League, and a subsequent lack of intensity, there was never going to be an Overmars, Wiltord or Keown moment.

"He's a strong player and is very important for us, especially at the end of the game when we have a lot of the ball and we attack".

"I think they recognised what he's actually done [at Arsenal]".

"To stay a manager, to have four or five years to try to get a trophy and to improve the team, I don't think you allow that any more". "Now I just want to have a glass of red win with Sir Alex.because it's always a good wine." .
