“Where is the controversy? For me, no controversy. The game is about many different aspects, technical, tactical, emotional, physical. Normally the best team wins – we were the best team.” Mourinho stated.

“I think I played against Arsenal 15/16 times and only once they didn’t moan. Maybe it was because they won that game. All the other matches, they have reasons for that.
Arsenal still retain a three point lead of Chelsea in the Premier League table and the clean sheet collected by the West London side was their first in domestic action this term.
