Jose Mourinho has admitted Manchester United missed Marouane Fellaini's aerial presence during the closing stages of his side's 1-1 draw with Arsenal on Saturday afternoon.
Arsenal remain without a league win at Old Trafford in 10 years and Wenger has still not beaten Mourinho in the league in 12 attempts.
Mourinho posted a picture on Instagram of him being embraced by Maradona at a previous event, and wrote: 'after a great perfomance but a bad result i had a phone call from king diego.gracias amigo.
"This team at the moment is the unluckiest team in the Premier League", Mourinho added.
Mourinho said his track record of winning league titles at every top club he has managed FC Porto, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Inter Milan demands that he gets more time. I have a very good feeling with Andre Marriner, he is the kind of referee that if he makes mistakes against my team I know that there is no intention. "Finally I lost against Arsene".
Wenger has not won at Old Trafford in the Premier League since September 2006 and has experienced a lot of pain here since - but he will happily grasp this point with both hands after a desperately disappointing Arsenal display. We were not sharp or fluent enough.
They had also been denied what appeared to be a clear penalty before half-time, with Antonio Valencia going to the ground after a clash with Nacho Monreal. We had chances to get the second goal to kill the game but we didn't.
The United manager would not be drawn on the penalty incident after being sent to the stands for protesting too forcibly about the last one.
"He is a bit frustrated", Wenger said.
The officials were coming under increasing scrutiny as the first half wore to a close, with Mourinho apoplectic after his team's penalty claims were ignored.
Wenger felt his side were not at their best.
"The result in the end is positive for us because we were 1-0 down with two minutes to go", the Frenchman told Sky Sports.
Manchester United's Juan Mata has shared his frustration after the Red Devils were held to a 1-1 draw by rivals Arsenal.
"Some players came back late on Thursday and we travelled on Friday morning and played Saturday morning". We came out of the dressing room in the second half, I think we suffered for 20 minutes and they deserved to be in front.
