Jose Mourinho: Record against Arsene Wenger is Meaningless

Jose Mourinho does have his fair share of incredible records – an unbeaten home run that stretched beyond 75 games – especially in English football. One such record is the statistic against Arsene Wenger; the Arsenal boss has NEVER managed to get the better of Mourinho. This is despite coming up against the Portuguese on 13 occasions.

Premier League 2014-15 Season Review: Arsenal

Was it a good season for Arsenal? Yes and no. Yes there are some signs of progression by retaining the FA Cup and finishing third, but is it enough to warrant a good season? Probably not.
