José Mourinho said after Fellaini's match-winning header against Arsenal on Sunday that the Belgian was "almost there" in terms of agreeing a new deal.

Since then, it's been just one Premier League victory at Old Trafford in 16 years for Arsenal and some bad, bad memories — the 8-2 hammering in 2011, the 6-1 thrashing in 2001, the ending of the unbeaten run of the "Invincibles" in 2004 and the sending-off in 2009 that forced Wenger to watch a game among the United fans. The win secured a top-four finish and Champions League football next season for the Red Devils.

Kanu won two Premier League titles, two FA Cups and a Community Shield during his time with the Gunners.

However, remaining at Manchester United is said to be his preferred option and he and his agents are set to meet the club hierarchy later this week to discuss a new contract.

Nigeria's legend, Nwankwo Kanu, is among former Arsenal players who will attend Arsene Wenger's last English Premier League (EPL) home game in charge of the Gunners against Burnley on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Wenger is now preparing his Arsenal side for their trip to Atletico Madrid in the return leg of their crunch Europa League semi-final tie on Thursday night. Manchester United nearly secured second spot with a late goal from Fellaini.

"I've really enjoyed it", Lindelof said.

"I want him to stay, the club wants him to stay, I think he will stay".

'We have to continue, we have three games to prepare for the final.

City passed the 100-goal mark in the Premier League and within touching distance of a number of milestones.

As well as Arsenal, Huddersfield face Manchester City and Chelsea in their last three games and sit 16th, three points above the relegation zone.
