Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has refused to ignite his war of words with Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho and insisted he will focus on Arsenal’s title challenge instead.
Wenger would not rise to Mourinho’s latest jibe after seeing the Gunners 5-2 demolition of Leicester City last weekend.
Alexis Sanchez’s stunning hat-trick at the Kind Power Stadium left the Gunners just three points behind new Premier League leaders Manchester United.
The Blues’ boss had fired at Wenger before the weekend, despite refusing to mention him by name, by suggesting that he was an exception to pressure managers are under.
The Portuguese boss also vetted out his anger at the FA’s decision to retrospectively ban Diego Costa for three matches following last Chelsea’s infamous 2-0 win over Arsenal at the Stamford Bridge, while Gabriel’s red card during the incident was rescinded.
Arsenal take on Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday and Wenger and his men will be looking to close the three point gap in between both clubs.
