Mourinho slams moaning Wenger

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho says he expected Arsenal to “moan” after his side beat the Gunners 2-0 in a feisty game at Stamford Bridge.
Gabriel Paulista and Santi Cazorla were both sent off for Arsenal as Kurt Zouma opened the scoring in the second half before the Blues wrapped up the match late on through Eden Hazard’s strike, according to Soccernet.

Gabriel was dismissed after clashing with Chelsea striker Diego Costa while Cazorla received a second yellow late in the second half at Stamford Bridge and Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was critical of Costa’s part in the sending off.

Mourinho, however, dismissed his rival’s complaints.
“I don’t know where the controversy was. For me there was no controversy,” he told BT Sport. “The game is about many aspects and through those combination of factors you have the best team.

“Normally the best team wins and we were the best. We were Sdominant, in control and, let’s not be hypocrites, to play with one more is easier but for me we were very comfortable in the first half.

“I think I have played against Arsenal 15 maybe 16 times and only once did they not moan. I don’t know why – maybe because they won that one. In all other matches they have reason for that.

“I played the first derby in September 2000 and I remember my words: ‘To win a derby needs emotional control’. I have played derbies in Spain, Italy, England and I always repeat the same words – ‘to win derbies takes emotional control’.”

Mourinho dropped captain John Terry for the fixture, w a game it was for us. That’s what we wanted to do and we are all happy.

“It was a very tough game and we came with 100 per cent to give everything. We dominated the game psychologically. The referee made the right decisions.”
