Chelsea and Arsenal will lock horns in London derby at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, September 19th as Arsene Wenger takes on Mourinho for the fourteenth time running. Mourinho has the upper hand over Wenger as he has never been defeated by the Frenchmen in the Premier League.
The bitter rivalry started when Mourinho first took charge of Chelsea back in 2004 and was set on one mission, to knock Arsenal of their perch. Since that time and now, 12 games have been played between Wenger and Mourinho. Seven games have been won by Mourinho and five games have been drawn while Wenger still awaits his first taste of success against the Portuguese.
The rivalry first came to a boiling point when Mourinho lashed out at Wenger with a verbal attack calling him “voyeur” back in 2007. Then back in February last year (2014) Mourinho again was involved in another verbal banter against Wenger by labeling him as “specialist in failure”.
The two clashed with one another last season as well in October when Arsenal took on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Wenger lost his cool and pushed away Mourinho when Gary Cahill tackled Alexis Sanchez.
The question now beckons, will Arsenal (and Arsene Wenger) be lucky this time around and beat Mourinho’s hoodoo or will they still have to wait as Mourinho celebrates for now.
Chelsea has experienced a shock start to the season with only four points from their opening five games. The news doesn’t get better for Chelsea as Willian and Pedro have been ruled out for the match due to injuries while Courtois is also out for three months win a knee injury.
On the other hand, Arsenal also hasn’t have a good start to the season. Their shock defeated on the opening day to West Ham and not signing a central striker during transfer window has left many fans infuriated with the club. Although they have managed to bounce back from the opening day defeat and have 10 points from 5 games, but can they beat Chelsea on Saturday.
Only time will tell which team comes out on top as you can watch the derby online live and find out who wins: “the Special One” or “the Specialist in Failure”.
