The Gunners welcome the Red Devils on Sunday, in a crunch clash as the race for the top four hots up.
Wenger and Mourinho have a long-standing rivalry and have clashed a couple of times on the touchline. Mourinho has not lost in 15 competitive matches against Wenger and ahead of the match at the Emirates, Wenger insists their feud is a thing of the past.
“I respect everybody and of course I respect Manchester United,” he told beIN Sports.
“I think the game will be just a game – and that is important for me.”
The Arsenal boss then passed up the opportunity to shake Mourinho’s hand after the Community Shield in 2015.
