Instead, it was an all-too-familiar feeling for the departing Arsenal manager.

With attention focused for much of the day on Arsene Wenger in the opposing dugout on his final visit to Old Trafford as Arsenal manager, Jose Mourinho didn't miss the chance to steal the limelight when the chance came.

Old Trafford has defined Wenger's time in English soccer more than any other visiting stadium.

Arsene Wenger oversaw 825 Premier League matches as the manager of the Gunners before his Manchester United fixture - winning 474 and losing 155 in the process.

The great Sir Alex Ferguson, who once shared an impassioned and fiery relationship with the Frenchman, handed over a gift to honour his friend.

"We have many players at our level who do less well in the competition than in training, so that was a question mark before the game and I think he surprised everybody by his quality today".

Mourinho has had plenty of his own tussles with Wenger over the years but on a day where United paid generous tribute to him through Sir Alex Ferguson's pre-match presentation, their current boss held out hope of further battles beyond Arsenal. I'm a bit in unknown territory, I don't know where I will go from there. Asked about his ovation as he walked along the touchline, Wenger said: "When you're not a danger any more, people love you". Mourinho then shook his hand warmly.

"I think a player that grabs the crest after scoring is telling clearly that he wants to stay", he added.

United have now sealed their place in the Champions League next season, and moved closer to their target of finishing at least second best to champions Manchester City by opening a five-point gap on Liverpool.

A big negative for United was the sight of Romelu Lukaku limping off early in the second half with what appeared a foot injury after being challenged by Arsenal debutant Konstantinos Mavropanos.

Although the United boss is not yet sure of the extent of Lukaku's injury, he said the Belgium global may be unable to make May 19's final against former club Chelsea at Wembley.

The entente cordial lasted roughly 15 minutes, right up until the point that Paul Pogba stabbed United into the lead from point-blank range.
