Mourinho's under pressure? He has to deal with it- Wenger

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says Jose Mourinho must deal with the fact he is under pressure at Chelsea.

 

Kurt Zouma grabbed his first goal for Chelsea as they defeated rivals Arsenal, who ended the game with nine men, 2-0 at Stamford Bridge this afternoon.

The first half was an on-and-off affair with Theo Walcott coming close to opening the scoring for Arsenal but the striker was well pressured by Asmir Begovic.

Pedro and Diego Costa troubled Petr Cech on his return to Stamford Bridge, before Gabriel was shown a red card for an off-the-ball incident that saw him walk over to Costa and lash out at him with his foot.

The Blues have struggled in 2015-16, winning just once in the Premier League, but the Frenchman has no sympathy for his managerial rival

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says Jose Mourinho must deal with the fact he is under pressure at Chelsea. The Blues, defending champions from last season, have won just once domestically so far this campaign and languish in 17th position, six points behind their bitter rivals. Mourinho and Wenger have a storied history and a particularly sour rivalry, and the Frenchman insists his counterpart must learn to get used to being under pressure at Stamford Bridge. He told reporters:" These are situations that are difficult to assess. It’s less enjoyable when it doesn’t go well but every manager in the game for a long time has to do deal with that." he added.Source: goal.com
