Premier league beef: Jose Mourinho vs. Arsene Wenger


These two great rivals haven't seen eye to eye almost from the day Mourinho pitched up at Chelsea from Portuguese football in 2004.
Their first spat centered on Wenger's criticism of Chelsea's lavish spending under billionaire Russian owner Roman Abramovich, Mourinho hitting back by calling his opposite number a "voyeur."



Chelsea's boss later claimed he had a dossier on things Wenger had said about his club, hinting at legal action.
It didn't take long for Mourinho to revive the rivalry upon his return to Chelsea in 2013, calling Wenger a "specialist in failure."
On Sunday, Wenger shoved Mourinho on the touchline after reacting angrily to a strong tackle on his player Alexis Sanchez.
The fourth official intervened, separating the two, as Chelsea went on to win 2-0 and make it 12 matches without defeat for Mourinho against Wenger.
Afterwards Chelsea's coach said there was "no problem" between the two, while Wenger said "What is there to regret?"
