Jose Mourinho: Arsene Wenger is a specialist in failure

Jose Mourinho has branded Arsene Wenger a "specialist in failure" as he hit back at the Arsenal manager for suggesting the title was "Chelsea's to lose".

"He is a specialist in failure. I'm not. So if supposing he's right and I'm afraid of failure, it's because I don't fail many times. So maybe he's right. I'm not used to failing," the Chelsea manager said.

"But the reality is he's a specialist because, eight years without a piece of silverware, that's failure. If I did that in Chelsea I'd leave London and not come back."

Chelsea currently top the Premier League table sitting just one point above Arsenal.
