Chelsea play Arsenal this weekend. But the fixture could be seen as Jose Mourinho versus Arsene Wenger.

Despite playing each other twelve times, the Arsenal manager has never beaten the Special One.

"I'm not proud (of that record against Wenger)", says Mourinho. "For me the achievement is to win the game on Sunday."

A victory for Chelsea on Sunday will not only extend that record - it'll all but seal the Premier League title. A mid-week win against Leicester will seal the title for the Blues.

But Mourinho isn't thinking about the trophy: "We didn't win this one yet. There are no ifs in football, only yes or no."

Last time the managers met, there was a touchline spat where Wenger shoved Mourinho. During his press conference this afternoon, a reporter asked "no-one's pushed you in title race but how hard did Wenger push you?"

Mourinho gave a thumbs up to the journalist who asked the question: "He deserves a proper answer for that... but I can't give him one!"
