One player who could be involved is Alexis Sanchez as Mourinho also confirmed United's latest signing will be involved in the squad against Yeovil but he stopped short of confirming whether the Chilean worldwide would start.

"You know, because he's in England for quite a long time, I think everybody knows the player he is", Mourinho said of his newest attacking addition.

"I am fulfilling a dream that I have since I was a kid: to play for the world's best team", Sanchez wrote in one of several Instagram posts.

Veteran manager Wenger has always been a believer in clubs not spending "beyond their natural resources" and last week angered Gunners fans by saying there was no way the London side could match the reported £500,000 ($697,000, 569,000 euros) weekly wages on offer to Sanchez at United.

Mourinho said it was "a great deal for everybody" and confirmed the 29-year-old Chile global will be in the squad for United's FA Cup fourth round tie against fourth tier Yeovil Town on Friday. I saw him play in different systems, I saw him successful in every country.

City won't lose sleep over one transfer, however, and now lie 12 points ahead of their city rivals at the summit of the Premier League after 24 matches.

However, United will be without four first team players as Eric Bailly is still recovering from ankle surgery while Daley Blind is also still missing with a muscle problem.

However, the Portuguese was coy over where Sanchez may feature for United, insisting that he is capable of playing in any role in attack.

"Could he have performed better? If the players are on the bench one day and they don't like it, I'm happy with that".

In the first half we gave them too much respect and we were a bit scared to really go for it, and we suffered from that, said Wenger. "Maybe, but he did important things for us and I think there's a good feeling for everyone". Could I take more from his talent?

Equally, as Armenia captain Mkhitaryan was afforded a vote for Fifa's best coach award, he ignored his manager and selected Massimiliano Allegri of Juventus, Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid and Monaco's Leonardo Jardim.
