Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger views Manchester United's failure to reach the knockout stages of the Champions League as "an accident".

The Red Devils lost 2-1 in Basle on Wednesday night, which meant they failed to emerge from the group stage of the Champions League for the first time since 2005.

Wenger feels given United's European pedigree, this season's exit is a blip as they must focus on their battle for Barclays Premier League supremacy with rivals Manchester City, who will also be in the Europa League. He said: "When you go out of the Champions League it is of course a big disappointment, but every team responds in a different way."
