Regrets, I've a few says Mourinho about baiting Wenger

The Europa League remains Wenger's final chance to claim a trophy with Arsenal, and would be his first European silverware in his 21-year reign at the club, having lost the 2006 Champions League final to Barcelona.

"Of course it feels like an opportunity missed", Wenger told BT Sport.

Hamilton, who said he had supported Arsenal since he was five, admired Wenger's commitment to the North London club over more than two decades.

Arsenal dominated Thursday's game at Emirates Stadium, partly thanks to the sending off of Atletico's Sime Vrsaljko, who was dismissed for two yellow cards in the first 10 minutes. "I hope so and I feel so, but what I am sure of is that next season, after pre-season, after being comfortable and adapted, he's going to be great for us".

Arsenal could have been out of sight by half-time as Lacazette, Danny Welbeck, Koscielny and Nacho Monreal all saw chances come and go with Atletico camped inside their own half.

"Our fans were fantastic, but we created an anti-climax by giving the ball away", he explained.

"We need to keep progressing; United is a big club, to which I am still adapting, and I am looking forward to giving everything I've got next year and aiming to win everything there is to win".

Alexandre Lacazette broke the deadlock with a fine header from Jack Wilshere's cross after 61 minutes, and it appeared Arsenal would head to the Wanda Metropolitano next week with a slender lead. "To stand firm as they did after such a long season, for 80 minutes, was tremendous". Atletico are yet to concede a goal in a Europa League home match this season and they have kept clean sheets in their last 11 matches at the La Peineta, where they have shipped just four league goals all season. "I realise that better at a distance than at the time".

"He asked me to go and train with the team, which I have not managed to do yet, but he was always really welcoming and it was cool to meet "our team's" boss". Should be good, very good. Three experienced players couldn't shut the door on one opponent and that has cost them so much tonight, I fear.

Wenger hasn't won the league since then, while Mourinho has enjoyed continental success - winning the Premier League again with Chelsea, the treble with Inter Milan, and a La Liga title with Real Madrid. New regime can't come soon enough.
