Jose Mourinho says he refuses to cheer Arsenal against Manchester City

Mourinho Press Conference Still

Chelsea boss comments on Arsenal's trip to Manchester City.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is not contemplating wishing Arsenal to do his club a favour in the title race, report The Sun.

Chelsea won comprehensively against Swansea City on Saturday, racking up a 4-0 lead by half-time and cruising through the second half with the game at the Liberty Stadium ending 5-0.

It was the performance of a title chasing team, finishing the opposition off early, but for Chelsea their lead at the top may only be temporary.

Manchester City have a chance to haul in their three point advantage on Sunday by beating Arsenal, but Mourinho will not be expecting or cheering for the Gunners to do him a favour.

The report states: "The special one shook his head in disgust when asked if he will cheer the Gunners - before emphatically answering 'No!'"

There is no love lost between Chelsea and Arsenal bosses Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger, evidenced by their touchline bust-up at Stamford Bridge earlier this season, a game the Blues won 2-0.

Mourinho is clearly confident enough that his side do not have to rely on others for results, and at this stage of the season it is not so essential, with plenty of points to play for, Chelsea's fate remains in their own hands.

The 5-0 win does wonders for their goal difference too, and even the most optimistic City fan may not foresee a win for them by the same scoreline.
